Hull, Massachusetts – March 4, 1930

     On March 4, 1930, a 19-year-old pilot took off from Rockland, Maine, in a Moth airplane bound for Boston to take a course to qualify for his transport pilot’s license.  The pilot became disoriented, and landed at Brockton Airport.  After receiving directions to Boston, he took off again, but then ran low on fuel and made an emergency crash landing in a field off Nantasket Avenue in Hull. The plane was wrecked but the pilot was not seriously injured.
