Dedham, Massachusetts – August 29, 1980

     On the evening of August 29, 1980, a former U.S. Navy trainer aircraft, leased to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Mass., was flying over Dedham when it developed engine trouble.  The aircraft, a North American T-28 Trojan, made a belly landing of the 11th fairway of the Dedham Country and Polo Club.  The aircraft slid to a stop and came to rest on the grass.  There were no injuries.
