Hudson, N. H. – September 28, 1946

Hudson, New Hampshire – September 28, 1946

     On the afternoon of September 28, 1946, a pilot and his student took off from Nashua in a “Aeronca light plane” for an instructional flight.  At 4 p.m. while practicing simulated forced landings over the neighboring town of Hudson, the aircraft was caught in a sudden down-draft and crashed into a tall pine tree.  The impact shattered the right wing, before the plane hit the ground and broke the tail.   The aircraft was a total wreck, but miraculously neither man aboard was hurt.  

     The crash occurred on the Groves Farm on Lowell Road.
