On January 14th, 1942, a crew of seven were returning from a WWII coastal patrol aboard their B-18 Bomber. They encountered bad weather, became disoriented in a blizzard, and found themselves besieged by wind and ice as they lost elevation. The plane crashed into the flanks of Mt Waternomee in Woodstock, NH that night. Of the seven Army-Airmen on board (this was pre-Air Force), miraculously five survived the crash. But they still needed to survive the elements. Thanks to the courage of the people of Woodstock, the five crash survivors lived to tell their tale, rescued by these brave folks. The video posted below is of our hike to visit this crash site, to pay our respects to those who lost their lives, and marvel over the fact that most made it through this tragic event. Enjoy the video.
This tour was led by Redline Guides Mike Cherim and Mike Maciel and included one oft-returning guest and Mike Cherim’s accounting teacher. For more information about the event itself, please check out this article.
Well done one and all! Thank you for adventuring with Redline Guiding!
