Sixty Five Years ago Yesterday

August 21, 1945, a Grumman Hellcat F6F and a B-25 managed to intersect in the skies 5 miles north of Rodeo. The mid-air collision sent the Hellcat to the ground but the B-25 managed to make it to Douglas and land. Don't know where the specific crash site is located but it should be somewhere around Amigos del Cielo airpark. The details can be found here.

A total of 8 aircraft accidents are reported from Rodeo New Mexico in the Air Force accident database during WWII.
