Vintage War Plane Crashes PDF Print E-mail

A 1950's, British Hawker Hunter Fighter jet went down near the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport around 9 Tuesday morning.

It had just taken off from the airport, headed for Canada, and did not have radio contact. An escort plane that was shadowing the jet did have radio contact with the airport.

The pilot was Tom Delashaw, a decoraded fighter jet pilot. Witnesses say it started rocking and soon after crashed in a wooded area just off Suscon Road in Luzerne County.

Delashaw was the only one on board. The Hunter was carrying some explosives, several were detonated. A British aviation expert will fly in to supervise the removal of the rest of the explosives.

COMMENTS FROM OLD SITE

A former Norwegian Starfighter-pilot told me about this accident, as he was a friend of Tom Delashaw. They used Norwegian F-104 mechanics for maintenance on the two F-104's based at St. Petersburg Intl Airport in Florida.
