THE MIDDLESEX HISTORICAL SOCIETY PRESENTS AN OCTOBER PROGRAM RECOUNTING THE WORLD WAR II BOMBER CRASH ON CAMEL’S HUMP

 

This plaque is located on a rock near the trail head.

If you’ve ever hiked Camel’s Hump, you may have noticed pieces of debris that look suspiciously like parts of an airplane.  In fact, they are.  This month marks the 70th anniversary of the World War Two U.S. Army Air Force bomber crash on Camel’s Hump, Vermont’s most famous air disaster.  Nine airmen died instantly, while the sole survivor barely clung to life for 41 hours before the first rescuer arrived.  The survivor was saved by Civil Air Patrol cadets from Waterbury.  Join historian and Waterbury Backcountry Rescue Team member Brian Lindner, who has been researching this crash since 1968, as he recounts the incredible luck, horrible bad luck, heroism, and even bureaucratic politics involved in the crash and rescue.  The program will take place on Tuesday, October 28th at 7:00 p.m. at the Middlesex Town Hall (upstairs), on the corner of U.S. Route 2 and Church Street in Middlesex Village.

The program is free of charge and is hosted by the Middlesex Historical Society.  For more info, please call 272-8074
