Nov. 13: The 1940 Lovettsville airliner disaster, by John Flannery. On August 31, 1940, a Pennsylvania Central Airlines DC-3 crashed into a field at the foot of the Short Hill Mountain, killing all 25 persons on board. It was the worst commercial airplane crash in U.S. history up to that time. On board were a United States Senator and two FBI agents who were tailing him. Many Lovettsville old-timers still remember the crash in its horrible detail.
