40 year celebration of Bronson Potter’s trestle airplane stunt

Friday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m.
Mason Town Hall
7 Meetinghouse Hill Road
Mason, N.H.

MASON, N.H.—It was a highlight of the summer of 1979: an aerial stunt that attracted crowds from throughout the region.

It was a local pilot’s daring flight under the huge railroad trestle that once spanned the Souhegan River in Greenville.

The spectacular feat took place on July 22, 1979, and those who saw “The Great Greenville Trestle Fly-Under” will not soon forget.

Now, 40 years later, everyone who wasn’t there can experience local inventor/pilot Bronson Potter’s legendary feat, as motion picture footage of the event has surfaced.

Taken by local resident Dave Morrison, the long unseen 8mm home movie footage will receive its public world premiere showing on Friday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. at Mason Town Hall, 7 Meetinghouse Hill Road, Mason, N.H.
