North Grafton, Massachusetts – July 21, 1929

     On July 21, 1929, two men were in an unspecified airplane flying 2,500 feet over the airport in North Grafton.  After nearly completing what was described as a “long loop”, a piece of the wing fabric tore loose which caused the plane to plummet and crash to the ground.  Both the 31-year-old pilot, and his 44-year-old passenger, a commercial photographer, were killed instantly.  Both men were from Worcester, Massachusetts.
