I believe this is the plane that my uncle, William Kinney, was piloting when it crashed. I was told it was due to engine failure but had also heard that the plane was experimental. Would love to know more information about it.
Thanks for stopping by, Julie! Yes, Lt. Col. W. E. Kinney, along with 4 others, were killed in this crash at Wright Field on May 22, 1947. I’ve emailed you some articles and additional information.
Thank you so much Lisa! I had heard that there had been one survivor and was pleased to hear that there were actually 2. Thanks for the suggestion to check in with the base!
You’re welcome! Glad we could find something helpful!
