Mangum, OK Plane Crashes In Fog, July 1933


Mangum, Okla., July 19. -- (AP) -- Two passengers were killed and the pilot critically injured today when an airplane crashed into the side of a fog-veiled mountain 28 miles from here.
The dead are DON TINSLEY, of Shamrock, Tex., and JARRETT TODD, JR., son of a former county judge here.
The injured pilot, W. F. HEARNE, was believed to have little chance for recovery.
Dr. Fowler Border, who brought HEARNE here in his airplane-ambulance, said the collision might have been avoided if the pilot had been able to get his ship ten feet higher.
The physician said a farmer in the neighborhood saw and heard the plane circling about several moments before the crash.
