Amarillo, TX Stunt Planes Crash, Oct 1933
STUNT PLANES FALL, 4 KILLED.
PLANES CRASH IN CIRCUS AS SPECTATORS WATCH.
Amarillo, Tex. (AP) - While thousands of horrified spectators watched, two stunting airplanes collided Sunday over Amarillo, bringing death to four "air circus"
fliers and severe injuries to another.
A ship carrying Pilot EZRA WIGGINS, of Hooker, Okla., BILL TULLIS, of Liberal, Kansas, and FRANK CLAY, of Morrill, Neb., plunged into a street three blocks from the city's main business thoroughfare. All three were killed.
The other plane, piloted by ART STUDE of Woodward, Okla., crashed through the roof of a laundry. Only two persons were in the building and neither was hurt. STUDE was fatally injured.
As part of the air show, streamers had been dropped from another plane and the two which collided were flying through them.
