Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Until workmen freed tangled cables. By Jim Jackson--A federal investigation was under way today to determine if wind gusts were responsible for the crash of a plane Sunday near Downtown Airport that killed three persons. The plane numbers checked to a plane owned by Georg Otto Mejlaender, 46, Houston, Tex. Jejlaender; his wife, Monta Mae, 44, and 10-year-old son, Michael, left Muskogee in the plane shortly before the crash. Medical records of the three were requested by the state medical examiner's office for possible verification of the identification. George Clark, regional chief of the National Transportation Safety Board, Fort Worth, said an investigator from his office, Frank Roth, was on the scene to conduct a routine investigation into the cause of the crash. Clark said his original notification on the crash indicated wind gusts may have caused the plane to drop on its landing approach, clip an electric power line and crash into the Frisco railroad bridge."
