|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The South Hadley Plane Crash Site is memorialized at the Skinner Mountain State Park. There is found a memorial structure with all 10 airmen that died at that site. Oh I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth, and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings. Put out my hand, and touched the face of God. (J D Magee) Location is behind the Mount Holyoke Skinner House.
