Description:

Three men survey the remains of a crash landing. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "CRASH LANDING was made by this plane Friday afternoon in a field near Will Rogers World Airport, but the three men aboard walked away with only minor injuries. Pilot Henry Franke, 6201 N Warren, and passengers Kenneth Cole, 3716 N Pennsylvania and Jack Bard 5,300 Colfax, were faced with engine failure of Franke's Beechcraft Bonanza. They were forced to set down a half-mile short of the airport's west runway. The trio was treated for minor cuts after the craft went into a ditch, through a fence and flipped just west of SW 74 and MacArthur."
