Quinlan, TX Private Planes Collide, Aug 1985


Quinlan (AP) -- A Hunt County Sheriff's investigator said there was no immediate explanation for the midair collision over northeastern Texas killed three Jackson, Miss., men on a business trip.
Two Dallas area men survived the crash Monday by making an emergency belly landing of their plane in nearby Van Zandt County, authorities said.
The Hunt County Sheriff's Office identified the three Jackson men as broadcast executive OWENS ALEXANDER, 63, the pilot; his son, DOUG ALEXANDER, no age available, and
son-in-law KURT BASKIN, 33, who were partners in a landscaping business. Hunt County Sheriff's Lt. Bryan Henson said federal investigators were trying to find the cause of the crash, but "there's no explanation right now."
