The flyARIA.com Aircraft Memorials The    first    memorial    that    I    placed    on    the    web    started    in    the    mid    1990s    on    my    dedicated commercial   website   tucked   away   not   accessible   by   a   link.   I   placed   an   on-line   memorial   for those   that   died   from   the   crash   of   ARIA   61-0328.   This   was   not   really   meant   to   be   a   public memorial   but   more   of   a   private   memorial   that   I   could   visit,   no   matter   where   I   was   at,   to   reflect on    my    time    with   ARIA    and    those    that    had    perished.   That    changed    in    2001    with    placing ARIAMemorial.com on-line as a dedicated website. My   intent   with   the   flyARIA.com   website   was   to   provide   information   of   the   ARIA   program   and with    that    provide    information    of    the    crash    of    the   ARIA    61-0328    but    not    have    an    on-line memorial.   In   2000   flyARIA.com   went   on-line   with   the   information   about   ARIA   that   I   could   find. There is not an overwhelming amount of information that was available on the ARIA program. In   the   first   generation   of   the   flyARIA.com   website   there   was   a   listing   the   the   original   8   ARIA aircraft   and   also   the   other   4   aircraft   that   physically   look   like   the   ARIA   but   had   a   different mission.   These   were   TRIA,   Telemetry   Range   Instrumentation   Aircraft   and   2   of   those   aircraft later were later modified in 1979 to perform the ARIA mission. About   10   years   after   flyARIA.com   came   on-line   I   received   an   email   from   a   gentleman   upset that   I   didn’t   mention   those   killed   when   TRIA   Aircraft   61-0331   crashed.   I   knew   that   61-0331   did not   crash   as   a   TRIA   aircraft.   Researching   the   aircraft   history   I   came   upon   the   crash   report.   In 1971   61-0331   was   transfered   to   Wright-Patterson   Air   Force   Base   from   Patrick   Air   Force   Base and   then   modified   for   a   new   mission.   Later   that   year   the   aircraft   crashed   with   the   resultant   24 deaths.   I   felt   that   I   needed   to   reflect   this   information   on   the   flyARIA.com   website   to   include   an on-line   memorial.   I   also   learned   that   there   was   at   one   time   a   memorial   plaque   hanging   in   one of   the   modification   hangars   at   Wright-Patterson   Air   Force   base   in   which   I   never   saw   or   heard about. 61-0331   was   the   motivation   to   search   out   the   complete   history   of   these   original   12   ARIA/TRIA aircraft.   I   then   located   information   on   the   crash   of   aircraft   61-2664   that   started   as   a   TRIA aircraft   but   was   later   modified   for   another   mission   with   a   resultant   6   deaths. Again,   I   felt   it   was important to place an on-line memorial of those that died. It   wasn’t   long   before   I   started   to   receive   emails   from   families   of   those   who   were   lost   from   the resultant   crashes.   The   responses   warmed   my   heart.   It   was   evident   from   their   words   how important it was to them to have the on-line memorials. Even   though   the   flyARIA   and   ARIAMemorial   websites   have   information   for   a   very   narrow audience,   I   feel   that   providing   them   is   important.   You   just   never   know   how   much   of   a   positive effect they may have.
