Editorial: Review looking for information on 1936 New Kent plane crash

The Tidewater Review is currently working on an article about an Army plane crash that took place in August 1936 in New Kent County.

According to records, a Langley Airfield bomber went down at night in a cornfield, possibly owned by C.P. Crump and his wife, in Providence Forge.

As a result of the crash, three men including the pilot were killed, while one survived.

The Review is looking to get a first person account of the incident from anyone who recalls the incident or has family members who remembered when it happened.

If you have information on this incident, please contact Amy Jo Martin by Aug. 11 at: amartin@tidewaterreview.com or 804-885-0040.
