in Kings Mountain. l)r. Morrison
called the (,'vil Aeronautics Authority
in Atlanta aud -received permission
to have the badly damaged
plane moved to Shelby. The plane
was moved about 1:30 P. M.
The young couple had taken oR
from the Shelby airport, for a pleasure
cruise and had flown to Kings
Mountain where the ship landed at
Hawk Haven (airport). It was short
ly after the.-take-off from the local
airport that the crash occurred. It
was understood that young McKinney
had only a solo license which
does not allow passengers to be
flown. The general opinion of those
who have some knowledge of flying
that the wreck. was caused by stunting
of the ship.
Mr. J. O. Nalle. C. A. A inspector
for this district was in town Sunday
and was expected to return to make
further investigation of the crash.
It is an established fact that the
ship was not out of gas, and the
ship did not come apart in the air.
The ship was damaged beyond repair,
and no attempt will be made
to rebuild it according to Dr. Morrison.
One of the moat tragic angles ot
the sad event was that the father of
