Description: Remains of a smoking twin-engine plane in the middle of a field just south of Minco, Oklahoma. The plane, piloted by Jack Ivory, crashed shortly after takeoff after experiencing signs of engine failure. All three men on board were killed. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Three men, believed to be California aircraft company executives, died in this flame-consuming wreckage. Groping in a pea soup fog, a twin-engine, privately-owned airplane crashed in a Grady County cotton field 10 1/2 miles southwest of Minco early Thursday morning, killing the pilot and two passengers. All three were believed to be Riverside, Calif., aircraft company executives. The victims, burned beyond recognition, have been tentatively identified as Jack Ivory, the pilot, executive vice- president of the Hunter-Douglas Aircraft Co., and Tom Holmes and Clem Lund. The tentative identification was made by the highway patrol after telephone communication with the aircraft company offices in Riverside. The patrol was informed that Ivory was traveling in the plane with Holmes and Lund. Aircraft company officials will be sent here from Riverside in an effort to make positive identification. The crash occurred shortly after 7 AM, a few minutes after the plane took off from Will Rogers Field here and then radioed that it had developed engine trouble. The CAA control tower reported it had been in radio communication with the aircraft, but that it had been broken off. The plane, according to a flight plan filed here, was headed for Prescott, Ariz."
