Biography

American plane accident on Lambert Field, St. Louis; a large crowd gathered to see a demonstration of an army glider transport, which contained many dignitaries, including the mayor of St. Louis, and high army officials. The plane took off with the glider in tow and flew around for a while, but suddenly, the glider appeared to become separated from the plane as its wings folded and it plummeted to earth, killing all ten people on board.
