I lived near the Double Six Monument in Kota Kinabalu. It's located in a small park right near the Grace Vill Food Court. It's a good hangout place for the locals. Monument is not so big, but it remembers the site of the 6 June 1976 fatal plane crash known as the Double Six Tragedy bearing the first Chief Minister of Sabah, Tun Fuad Stephens, as well as six other State ministers.

Located in Sembulan, the Double Six Monument was erected on the site where a fatal plane crash happen on June 6, 1976 - hence the name. It was a very tragic time for Sabah as the airplane carried the fifth Chief Minister, Tun Mohd. Fuad Stephens and six other state ministers, killing everyone on board. To learn more the history of this event, visitors can go to the Double Six Gallery which is located just next to the monument. Here, you can watch a video about the history of Sabah and formation of Malaysia, plus discover many other memorabillia.
