't happened about P:30 in u wheal i
* field near the Park Yarn Mill.
Mr. Ted Weir saw the plane fall
I* and rushed to lite scene of tlte crash
o and with the aid of others extracted
d the bodies which were badly niaug'
led front the wreckage. Mr. Weir
" brought the injured couple in his :

' I was understood that young MoKin- <
nev hud only a .solo license which
