August 25, Amherst, N.H. / Socata Trinidad


At about 07:37 eastern time, a Socata TB-20 crashed into the pilots residence, killing the pilot. An IFR flight plan was filed from Nashua to Atlantic City, N.J., but was not activated. Witnesses said the pilot appeared in a hurry before takeoff, taking off about 10 minutes after arriving at the airport. Radar data and witness accounts show the airplane made four circles over the pilots house before the pilot pulled the power and crashed into his house. A restraining order had been issued the day before and police escorted him off the property at that time. The medical examiner declared the accident a suicide.
