Telford Aviation Services Founder Was Landing On Moosehead Lake
Telford Allen II, 64, the founder of Telford Aviation Services,
was killed during a water landing attempt in front of his home in
Maine Sunday. A passenger in the plane, 61-year-old Natalie
Holmes-Moody, survived the accident and was in stable condition in
a hospital in Greenville, ME.
Allen had a home in Rockwood, ME, just at the mouth of the Moose
River. Early witness reports indicate that the amphibious plane's
wheels might have been down when Allen attempted the landing. The
Bangor Daily News reports that witnesses said the plane flipped
over and came to rest in the water inverted.
Telford Aviation began as a small charter flight company in
Waterville, ME, but later moved to Bangor International Airport in
1990. It evolved into an airplane parts sales and maintenance
company, and was sold in 2009 to ACC Holdings of Milwaukee, WI. By
that time, the company was being run by Allen's sons, Telford III
The FAA was on the scene Sunday afternoon, and the accident
remains under investigation.
