Ansonia, Connecticut – July 2, 1975 

     At about 7:30 p.m. on July 2, 1975, a Piper PA28-140 with two men aboard was taking off from the Ansonia Airport.  (The airport no longer exists.) When the airplane had reached an altitude of about 50 feet the engine suddenly failed and the plane crashed.  Although the aircraft suffered substantial damage, the two men escaped with minor injuries.
