James Ignasher, author of Forgotten Tales of Rhode Island Aviation will share amazing but true stories about Rhode Island air and rail disasters. Did you know that on May 16, 1944 a military plane crashed on the East Greenwich-Exeter border? Or that there was once an airport in Smithfield where Bryant College is located? The roof of that airport hanger is now the roof of a factory building at 18 Industrial Drive. Jim is a local historian based in Smithfield and the author of several books on largely forgotten air, sea and rail disasters.
