    Say,we know who qualified for the 1961 Worlds from that Nationals. As those were the Skaters in the crash. But because not EVERY Skater at Nationals qualifies for Worlds. Does anyone know if there's any record of the names of the Skaters from the 1961 Nationals that did NOT qualify for Worlds? BTW. does anyone know anything about Sabena Airlines today? Are they still flying? Just wondering.

    I'm not sure if this is a complete results list (can anyone confirm?), but these are the 1961 U.S. Nationals results on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1961_United_States_Figure_Skating_Championships

    No, they stopped flying in 2011 according to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabena
    "Sabena was the national airline of Belgium from 1923 to 2001, with its base at Brussels National Airport."
