Bellingham, Massachusetts – May 25, 1957    

On May 25, 1957, Armand O. Bernier, 29, was flying a two-seater training aircraft 2,800 feet over Bellingham, when the motor stalled.  The plane crashed into a wooded area near Box Pond.  Bernier was able to climb out of the wreck on his own and walk to a nearby road where two men drove him to Milford hospital.  Bellingham police stood by to prevent souvenir  hunters from looting the plane.
