WRECKAGE OF NAVY PLANE: Two men in a Navy training plane were killed in the crash shown above. The plane pancaked into a farm field this morning about five miles west of Saline, and then bounced about 450 feet further to crash into a tree. Neighboring farmers and county officials view the crumpled wreckage, parts of which were thrown by the impact to points hundreds of feet away. Identity of the two men was not revealed by the Navy.

WRECKAGE OF NAVY PLANE WIDELY SCATTERED: The Navy training plane which crashed twice on a farm near Saline this morning is shown in the background of the picture above, which was taken from the spot where the plane first crashed, making a hole ten yards long and two and a half feet deep. The two occupants of the plane were instantly killed. Parts of the plane, some of which are shown above strewn along the recently plowed field, are also scattered over as extensive an area on the other side of the tree, a top branch of which the plane cut off as it sped to the earth.
