OK...I need a true historian here. In 1973, shortly after Delta Airlines bought out Northeast Airlines, a Delta DC-9 that I believe was flying nonstop out of Burlington, VT, crashed upon landing at Logan. It was a July day and Logan was nearly fogbound. The DC-9 hit a seawall at the edge of Runway 4R and broke apart along the runway. All aboard were killed, including one man who survived for a time before perishing.
My question is whether the plane did or did not stop at Manchester, NH on its way to Boston. I say it did not, but was scheduled to do so. It bypassed the normal stop at MHT and instead was flying BTV-BOS on that fateful morning.
Can someone shed some light on the routing of this flight, and its flight number?
