The Cost of Freedom

A C_54A transport departs Newfoundland on the last leg of a mail flight from England to Washington, D.C. Around midnight, over New Brunswick, they transmit a signal to Washington, giving the plane’s estimated time of arrival. ¬†Nothing further is ever heard from this flight.

This is probably the best known of all Maine crash sites and, through the efforts of the local community, it has been preserved, is easily located, and has good trails throughout.  You can drive to within 50 yards of the left-wing portion of the crash site and can tour the entire site without any strenuous hiking.
