Skyway: The True Store of Tampa Bay’s Signature Bridge and the Man Who Brought it Down

Instructor: Bill DeYoung

On the morning of May 9, 1980, a 20,000-ton freighter hit one of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge’s concrete legs during a violent thunderstorm. More than 1,200 feet of bridge toppled into the water, and 36 motorists died in the worst tragedy in Tampa Bay history. Learn what led up to our darkest day – and what followed – with news and private footage, rare photos, and narration.
