Today’s photo is from Cordy Chambers III, of Snow Shoe. It features a plane accident outside the village of Clarence in the late 1940s.

According to Chambers, a small plane piloted by “Mr. Beranty” developed engine problems and landed in the field of Steve Padisak and his wife. The property is now owned by Samantha Murnyack.

After a few days, the engine and plane were repaired and it taxied down the field and took off.
