     On March 26, 1946, pilot David Moores, 19, of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, was alone in his airplane over the town of Scarborough when he developed engine trouble and the plane began to loose altitude.  At a location near Black Point Road, the aircraft snagged on electrical wires causing the plane to crash.  Although the plane was badly damaged, Moores walked away with only minor injuries.
