A time to remember

Various commemorative events are taking place throughout the country today, the first anniverasary of the tragic crash at Madrid’s Barajas airport in which 154 people lost their lives.

At Terminal 2 in Madrid, a Mass took place followed by floral tributes being laid at a memorial at the site of the fatal crash. The memorial, a stone slab, contains a phrase chosen by the families of those who died. Employees of Spanair observed a one minute silence.

Later this evening, a memorial service is being held in Las Palmas cathedral on Gran Canaria.
