    Are there more photos and articles on the plane crash on Tuttle from 1957. My Dad was first on the scene.

      I have several taken that evening on Tuttle. The lighting is so bad you can’t make out much detail, and obviously we were not permitted to be too close. I lived in N. Dayton and was attending Chaminade at the time. Several of us drove out to the area when we heard what had happened. For some reason, I cannot forget “Tuttle Avenue” even though I forgot the type of plane.

    My dad was first on the scene and attempted to get inside the house. Big interest in any photos people have.
