Mount Monadnock – February 3, 1984

Mount Monadnock – February 3, 1984

Jaffrey, N.H.

     On February 3, 1983, a chartered twin-engine Cessna 402, (N6814G), left Morristown, New Jersey, with a crew of two, and “four or five” passengers.  The flight was bound for Concord Airport in New Hampshire.  The flight arrived safely, and the passengers were discharged.  At about 5:30 p.m., the aircraft took off from Concord for the return trip to New Jersey.  While in-route the aircraft crashed into the side of Mount Monadnock near the summit of the 3,165 foot tall mountain.  Both crewmen were killed on impact.

     A signal from the aircraft’s electronic locator was picked up around 6:00 p.m. by satellite at Scott Air Force Base in Ill.  Searchers were hampered by rain and fog, but reached the crash site 18 hours later.
