Description: Daytime photo of a large jet resting on the ground without the landing gear down. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "3 Safe as B-47 Goes Down in State-- A giant six-engine jet bomber made a ""wheels-up" emergency landing in pea soup fog early Thursday morning on a Noble county wheat farm 8 miles northeast of Perry, but all three crew members escaped injury.

First word of the plane being in distress was received by the highway patrol when it was reported the plane was giving "May Day" signals, "extreme distress" over the northwestern Oklahoma. All patrol units in the northwest section of the state were alerted to be on the lookout for the plane, flying through the heavy fog. Reports were received later from a northeastern farmer that the plane was flying at tree-top level and apparently in distress. Capt. Lloyd told Harold Clark, a service station operator near the scene of the crash-landing, the California-based plane was headed for Tinker Air Force base. The pilot said he was unable to reach Tinker because of the heavy fog that enveloped the northern and western sections of the state and had turned toward Wichita. That city, however, also was socked in by heavy fog. Running low on fuel, the pilot saw Perry's air force emergency landing field and was circling to land there but was forced to set his plane down in the wheat field. Clark said the B-47 flew over his station 5 miles north of Perry on U.S. 77,several times at an altitude of from 250 to 300 feet making a vain attempts …

Description: Plane being towed off a lake. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Afloat at last, crippled plane is towed to Overholser ramp after salvage marathon. --A crippled amphibious airplane rose from Lake Overholser's muddy bottom at 2:30 a.m. today, and finally was maneuvered to dry land to end some 15 hours of murky, chilly labor for a crew of divers. The 30-foot-long craft was dragged up a boat ramp on its wheels after it was extricated from the mud, raised through 12 feet of water and flipped right side up. Retrieval climaxed an adventure that began last Wednesday when the single-engine Colonial Skimmer sank while owner-pilot Art Price was making a takeoff. Price, of 5602 N Rockwell, and Joes Walker, 2813 N Grove, were rescued by a fisherman as the plane settled to the bottom in the Horseshoe Bend area in the lake's southwest corner."

Description: Nighttime photo of mangled parts of a plane crash. Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Twisted metal is all that's left of crashed Navy jet." By Jim Roger -- "A $3 million military jet plane with two Navy pilots aboard crashed in a pasture two miles west of Tinker Air Force Base in southeast Oklahoma City Friday night, a few seconds after the fliers parachuted to safety. The craft did not burn. The Navy F-4's pilot and co-pilot both escaped injury. Their cross-country training flight from Oceana Naval Air Station, near Virgina Beach, Va., ended less that 10 miles shy of a 1,200-mile non-stop trip. The pilot was identified as Lt. Cmdr. Michael J. Ettel, 33, of Oceana Air Station. Neither Officer was injured, but both were given emergency check-ups at Tinker Air Force Base Hospital. The twin-engine craft was believed to have run out of fuel. Authorities said the men radioed the Tinker control tower that they were abandoning the aircraft."
