Kennebunk, Maine – May 17, 1948

     On May 17, 1948, two men, a pilot and his student, were killed when their small plane crashed in the woods of Kennebunk.  The weather at the time was rainy and foggy, and witnesses reported seeing the plane pass back and forth over the Kittery-Portland Highway shortly before the crash.  The debris was scattered for 350 feet, and investigators could not determine who had been at the controls at the time of the accident.
