Winchester, New Hampshire – August 15, 1966

     On August 15, 1966, a small aircraft with a father and his 19-year-old son aboard, left Buffalo, New York, bound for Keene, New Hampshire.  As the aircraft was passing over the town of Winchester, New Hampshire, it struck the guy wire to a 600 foot television antenna situated on Gun Mountain.  The impact occurred about 500 feet from the ground.  Search teams found the wreckage of the plane about 1,000 feet from the base of the tower.  Neither of the two men aboard had survived.  Both were from Dallas, Texas.
