50 years ago today: Franklin Township, Pennsylvania

1962:  "A single-engine plane was damaged yesterday during a forced landing in Franklin Township on a private airstrip owned by Steve Szollosy, Cherryville Road. The 1962-model Piper Cherokee, flown less than 110 hours, was piloted by Louis Hano, of Trenton. He and three passengers escaped injury. According to state police at Flemington, the plane overshot the airstrip and skidded to a halt on the Allen's Corner-Kleinsville Road. The left wingtip, landing gear and propeller were damaged. Police said Hano was landing to seek directions to Sky Manor Airport near Pittstown. Another plane was flown from Sky Manor Airport to pick up Hano and his passengers."
