Danvers, Massachusetts – December 21, 1976

     On December 21, 1976, a twin-engine Piper Apache with a husband and wife aboard took off from Beverly Airport, which is located in both Danvers and the neighboring town of Beverly.  According to one witness, the aircraft appeared to “wobble” as it took off before one engine cut out and the aircraft went down on Massachusetts Avenue in Danvers, crashing and exploding thirty feet from a private home.  The couple perished in the accident, but nobody on the ground was injured.
