Oxford, ME. – August 14, 1992

Oxford, Maine – August 14, 1992 

     In the early evening of August 14, 1992, a twin-engine Beechcraft Baron, was taking off from an airport located behind the Oxford Plains Speedway, when both engines suddenly lost power while the plane was at an altitude of 200 feet.  The aircraft went down in a wooded area near the speedway.  The landing gear was torn away, but the fuselage remained intact, and there was no fire.  

     There were two men aboard the aircraft at the time of the accident.  The student pilot, a 29-year-old man from Providence, Rhode Island, and his passenger, a 29-year-old man from North Andover, were both transported to medical facilities with serious injuries.     

     The accident was video-taped by another student pilot who was at the airport and happened to be filming the take-off.
