|The Piper Cherokee wreck|
On July 16, 1986, thick fog enveloped Lock Haven’s William T. Piper Memorial Airfield. Not discouraged by the adverse conditions, a pilot in his Piper Cherokee were preparing for take-off. The pilot throttled up and took off into the fog. Bald Eagle Mountain lay somewhere front of him, but the fog prevented him from gaining his bearings. Before he could react, the rocky tree covered slope of the mountain was rushing toward him.
