HE FLEW AROUND TAHE WORLD - DIES IN FIERY PLANE CRASH.

THREE MONTREALERS KILLED.

Burlington, Vt. (CP) - All three Montrealers aboard a twin-engine plane which crashed 15 miles from here were killed, a spokesman for the radio station which employed one of them said Friday night.
The spokesman for Montreal station CJAD said a reporter for the station at the crash scene reported all three dead. They were the only persons on the plane.
The plane carried DAVID SHEFLER, recently back from a flight around the world which publicized Expo 67; MARY PERT, promotion director for CJAD, and R. L. ROSEN, a Montreal businessman.
The plane, a Comanche, crashed 150 feet from the top of Mount Mansfield in the rugged Green Mountains of Vermont.
The plane was described as the one in which MR. SHEFLER made his global flight in company with Max Conrad, an American known as the
"Flying Grandfather."
The Vermont state police said two bodies had been recovered from a point near the wreckage.
State police said the wreckage was sighted by an aircraft of the Civil Air Patrol and shortly afterwards was reached by a squad of police.
The aircraft left Montreal Thursday night for the 20-minute flight to Burlington. A spokesman for MISS PERT'S employer, station CJAD, said the party planned to return to Montreal the same night.
