Posted: Updated:
It's been 25 years since the United Airlines flight 232 from Denver to Chicago crashed on the runway in Sioux City after a mechanical failure July 19, 1989.

It was considered the worst aviation disaster in the state, largely due to the presence of media near the air field.

112 people died when Flight 232 cart wheeled in a huge fireball down the runway at the sioux city airport. 

184 people survived the crash.
