Mendon, MA – August 2, 1931

Mendon, Massachusetts – August 2, 1931 

     On August 2, 1931, two men took off from an open field near the Pine Hill Cemetery in Mendon, Mass.  The aircraft was an older model American Eagle airplane.  The plane had barely left the ground when it struck a pole, and then a large pine tree, before it crashed onto Providence Street.  Both men escaped with minor injuries, although the aircraft had sustained serious damage.

     The pilot had landed in the field a short time earlier to make a quick repair.
