Description:

Nighttime photo of a broken wing lying on top of a broken tree branch. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "A wing from a light plane that crashed near Harrah Wednesday injuring a Tahlequah couple lies against a small tree. Tom Tucker and Kathy Miller, both 32, were listed in critical but stable condition today at a Midwest City hospital. Officials said the Piper Cherokee 300 crashed in a field near the intersection of 50th Street and Lynch Road in eastern Oklahoma County, apparently snagged on a fence, ripping the wings off, before it struck a tree, the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office said. Federal Aviation Administration officials were investigating the crash today."
