Waterville, ME. – July 28, 1984

Waterville, Maine – July 28, 1984

     At 3:50 p.m. on the afternoon of July 28, 1984, a Learjet 25B with a pilot, co-pilot, and three passengers aboard was scheduled to depart La Fleur Airport in Waterville for Westchester Country, New York.  As the aircraft was making what appeared to be a normal take off,  cockpit warning lights suddenly indicated a problem with the engines.  The aircraft went off the runway and into a rocky – brush area and was damaged beyond repair.  The pilot and co-pilot were injured, but the three passengers  were not, and took another flight to New York.
