Six of the bodies were burned beyond recognition. Plane wreckage in a field near Will Rogers Airport. The plane was engulfed with flames upon impact, and a seventh passenger's head was badly crushed. Identified at the scene were William C. Baker, 48, president of the Monarch Tile Co. in San Angelo, Tex.; Jerry Dick Adair, 38, pilot for the firm, and Elmont Dykema, 43, of Bettendorf, Iowa. Bob Breen, Monarch personnel director, told an Oklahoman reporter by telephone the company's vice president, W. A. Darby, 51, also was along on the trip and was thought to be one of the victims. The plane, bound for Shreveport, La., belonged to the tile company, Breen said. The San Angleo Standard Times said Thursday night another spokesman at Monarch identified the three other passengers as George Appleby, a Mr. Twatchman and a Mr. Zanutto. Zanutto's name was found inked on a label inside a partially burned jacket discovered in the wreckage, and a shaving kit found in the wreckage bore the initials "G. K. A." Dykema reportedly was vice president of Wholesale Distributing Co., Moline, Ill., which was major customer of Monarch Tile Co., and the other three men were customers of Dykem's company."
