The Search for Northeast Airlines Flight 792

On November 30th, 1954, Northeast Airlines Flight 792 took off from Laconia, NH for its destination, Berlin, NH less than 100 miles away. Northeast Airlines Flight 792 never completed its 35 minute flight to Berlin. Heavy snow and wind threw the plane off-course causing it to steer directly into the massive Mount Success. The plane was too low, and the pilot couldn't recover. The plane barreled into the forest south of the summit.

Incredibly, all seven passengers of Flight 792 survived the crash, however two died while waiting to be rescued. It wasn't until December 2nd, 1954 that rescuers were able to locate and come to the aid of the five remaining survivors.
