An American Airlines Convair Crashes Near Albany, New York September 15, 1953
by Robert Grey Reynolds, Jr
Multiple eyewitnesses watched a Convair 240 plunge to the earth near a trailer park in Colonie, New York. Some of the witnesses were already at work and others were inside trailers within several hundred feet of the crash. One woman's trailer was scorched in the intense heat that burned bodies to the point that they were unrecognizable. My e-book looks at the crash and the CAB investigation.
