Plane Crashes, White Mountains


Plane crashes in the White Mountains, New Hampshire. Five weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor, a Douglas B-18 Bolo Bomber crashed into the side of Mount Waternomee. And in 1959 a Piper Comanche airplane crashed in a remote area of the 45,000-acre Pemigewasset Wilderness.
