Dunn, N.C., Dec. 25 - Three men were killed late today as an airplane in which they were riding failed to right itself after a loop-the-loop and crashed to the ground within the Dunn city limits.
The dead are:
ALTON STEWART, pilot, of Coats, near here.
WORTH STEPHENSON, student flyer of Angler, a few miles from here.

The bodies of the three men were badly mangled.
STEPHENSON was said to have been at the controls at the time of the crash.
