Westborough, Massachusetts – September 4, 1975

     Aka Westboro, Mass.

     On the evening of September 4, 1975, a seaplane with two men aboard took off from Marlborough Airport in Marlborough, Massachusetts, bound for Lake Chauncy in Westborough.  The plane arrived over the lake at about 5:30 p.m. and the pilot came in to land on the water.  As the aircraft touched down it suddenly flipped over and began to sink.  The accident occurred about 300 yards off Old Lyman School Beach.  Fortunately the pilot and his passenger escaped without injury.  The aircraft was brought to shore a few hours later.
