 The links to the left provide general info on Westover history and info on plane crashes.
 
     
In 1995 I completed a book called "Military Aircraft Crashes Around Western Massachusetts 1941-".
It is a compilation of newspaper reports and facts culled from USAF Crash Reports.
Please email me at fellowlaborer@live.com if  you have any questions, comments, suggestions or additions!!
 
The book is for sale on ebay for $10.00 plus postage!   Paypal etc. accepted through ebay.
 
PLEASE NOTE: ALL MY RESEARCH MATERIALS RELATIVE TO THE PLANE CRASHES, ARE AT THE CHICOPEE PUBLIC LIBRARY ON FRONT STREET. THEY ARE KEPT IN THE CHICOPEE ROOM ON THE BASEMENT LEVEL IN A BOX MARKED "TOM MARTIN".
 
I'd like to mention Andrew Biscoe's site at www.westoveryesterday.com which is excellent!  Also, check out the link to the left titled "Other sites about Westover"
 
This video was done by a consultant working for Amherst College and is very interesting but short!
