Plymouth, MA. – November 19, 1982

Plymouth, Massachusetts – November 19, 1982

     On the morning of November 19, 1982, a single-engine Piper Cherokee took off from Plymouth Airport with a pilot and two passengers aboard.  This was to be a demonstration flight as the aircraft had recently been repossessed by a bank, and the passengers were considering buying it.   Shortly after takeoff, as the pilot was making a large loop around the airport, the airplane developed engine trouble, and as the pilot tried to make an emergency landing, the aircraft went down in a wooded area short of the runway.  The pilot and passengers all suffered serious-critical injuries, and were transported to Jordan Hospital.
