1/16/2013 - Members of the 23rd Space Operations Squadron participate in a memorial hike, remembering the 64th anniversary of a tragic plane crash Jan. 14. New Boston Air Force station, previously known as New Boston Bombing Range from 1942-1956, served as a regular target for training missions out of Grenier Field in Manchester, New Hampshire. On Jan. 14, 1949, Capt. Elmer V. Kramer of the 95th Fighter Squadron was on a training dive-bomb mission, when the left flipper door of his P-51 Mustang came open and was ripped off, closely followed by the entire wing. Kramer was killed on impact as the plane crashed into a hillside just south of the target. (U.S. Air Force photo/Jeff Oja).
