Presented by: John Flannery 

Sunday, November 13, 2:00 pm

At St. James Church,  10 East Broad Way, Lovettsville, VA

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.

The program will be held at St. James United Church of Christ, 10 East Broad Way, Lovettsville, at 2:00 p.m. The program is free, but donations are welcome to defer the cost of our programs.
