Barre-Montpelier Airport – April 10, 1964
Shortly before 1:30 p.m., on April 10, 1964, a Northeast Airlines DC-3, (Flight 373) was taking off from Barre-Montpelier Airport with nineteen people aboard. The plane had barely left the ground when a sudden strong gust of wind rotated the plane and sent it crashing into a storage hangar, two parked cars, and another aircraft. Remarkably, there were no reported injuries.
Although the airliner suffered extensive damage there was no fire, and all aboard were evacuated safely.
