Aeroplane Wing Crumples at Height
of 800 Feet and Airman la Dashed
to Ground In Presence of Thou
sands Struggled to Save Life
Denver ColFrom ten to fifteen
thousand persons saw Ralph John
stone the holder of the worlds avla
tlon altitude record plunge In his
Wright biplane at Overland Park
Thursday from a height of 800 feet
to a terrible death nearly every bone
In his body being fractured
His tragic flight was not without a
thrilling struggle with the grim mes
senger for when the daring bird
man realized that the art8ward dive
might mean the loss of his life he
tried to climb swiftly to the top of
his aeroplane lest the heavy machin
ery crush out his lIfo
The tragedy was apparently due In
great measure to an accident on Tues
day when on alighting In front of tho
grand stand a screw gave way and
his biplane crashed into a fence and
stopped with a crushed wing It was
this wing probably not properly re
paired that gave way and sent the
machine and Its driver to tho ground
Johnstono got away perfectly when
he started his last flight Once or
twice he circled above the admiring
throng then rose to a height of 900
feet Johnstone gave some exhibitions
of aerial rough riding making his
plane dip and rise dip and rise as
though it were borne by some huge
Invisible wave
After seventeen minutes of flight
Johnstono decided to come down He
was making a fancy descent known
to aviators as the aerial spin When
at a distance of about 800 feet from
the ground his machine was noticed
to wobble several times Suddenly
it swerved and the right wing crum
pled The part that had been in
lured gave way entirely and like a
huge bird crippled by a shot It be
gan to flutter to the ground Ap
parently Jobnstone realized Instantly
that death was reaching out for him
for he hurled off his heavy headgear
and seizing the rods sought to clam
ber to the top of the aeroplane evi
dently trying to escape being caught
under the heavy machinery
The machine fell outside Overland
Park at the corner of Iowa and South
Delaware streets where a crowd had
gathered on a knoll overlooking the
park All scampered to safety save
one man who seemed not to realize
tho weight of the machine that was
coming down upon him but stood with
uplifted arms as if to catch the bird
like monster Suddenly he darted
from under and Johnstono crashed to
the ground the machinery all above
him parts of it however driven clear
through his body in which no bone
remained unbroken
