Russell FSS (RSL) World War II Flight Crew Memorial, Kansas, 2011
This memorial (pathways and vertical monument center of photo) was created by Phillip Schulz and others and placed in front of the Russell FSS building where the Bonanza's used to  park. It is dedicated to the memory of the 27 airmen that lost their lives in a B-17 and three B-29s that went down in Russell County during WWII. They were en route from Walker Army Airfield just 17 miles to the west of Russell. The sidewalks are laid out similar to the three runways at Walker AAF. There is a granite marker at the base of the large limestone marker with their names engraved on it.
