Description:

Private plane being towed through the streets of Oklahoma City by a Ford pickup past Andy Anderson's and Beverly's. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "On its way to a better spot than a heavy-traveled express route is this Cessna 140 plane. Piloted by Eugene F. White, of Florissant, Mo., it made a forced landing Sunday near NW 50 and Pennsylvania along the U. S. 66 by-pass. Bothered by a fog and carburetor trouble, White and a passenger, Mrs. H. E. Haynes, en route to Los Angeles, landed without personal injury. The plane suffered $500 damage. White`s plane left Tulsa at 9 a.m. Sunday, but a low ceiling forced him to come down at 10;30 a.m. in the area where Montgomery Ward will build a new store. Officer L. D. Hannah, who investigated the landing, said White, vice-president of Autotronics Corp., and Mrs. Haynes, of a Florissant advertising firm, had left Alton, Ill. on Saturday. In this picture, the plane is being towed to Tulakes airport for repairs."
