Leomonster, MA. – December 27, 1986

Leominster, Massachusetts – December 27, 1986

     At about 7:30 p.m. on December 27, 1986, a four-seat Pipe Archer, (N8720C), with two New Hampshire men aboard, was approaching Fitchburg Airport when the plane went into a stall and crashed in the area of Campbell Avenue, in Leominster.  As the aircraft came down it struck some wires, bounced off a narrow residential street, and came to rest after striking a private home.  There was no fire, and nobody in the home was injured.

     The men were transported to Leominster Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
