The National Transportation Library of the Department of Transportation has digitized numerous collections, in order to provide easy access for DOT library customers and researchers. In that array of helpful research materials are the investigations of aircraft accidents, 1934 – 1965, the investigations of railroad accidents, 1911 – 1993, and much more. Here is the link to the DOT library’s digital collections.
Of particular interest to researchers in Cecil County are two commercial airplane accidents. One involving an Eastern Air Lines Flight took place near Bainbridge Naval Training Center May 30, 1947. The other involving Pan American World Airways took place at the edge of Elkton December 8, 1963.
We had previously linked to those materials at the digital library but since readers often report trouble with the links, we are providing copies of the official Civil Aeronatics Board investigations here.
