Vintage World War II Aircraft Crashes into Hudson River

A single seater P47 Thunderbolt went down 3.2 kms south of George Washington Bridge. Engine failure has been considered as a possible cause of the crash.

The aircraft along with other two, flew from an airfield in Farmingdale. The planes were taking part in shooting of a promotional video for the American Airpower Museum’s 75th Anniversary. The other two planes, including a P40 and the plane taking the photographs returned safely to the airfield.

The body of a 56 years old man, believed to be the pilot of the crashed aircraft, was recovered three hours after the crash by scuba divers.
