Search Plane Crashes into Agrihan Crater
as reported in the Daily News
Contributed by Mike Iverson



Note: C-47 is the Army's designation for the Airplane referred to as RD4 by the Air Force

This story, which appeared in the Dec. 23, 1953 issue of the Agana News [Guam] was preserved by Mike Iverson, a member of the VJ-1/VW3 Weather Squadron stationed on Guam.  The whole story, after the p. 1 paragraph, was continued on other pages .  I have reconstructed the story for this web page and tried to clean the smears from the 58 year old copy somewhat.  It has not been edited.  Max Crow, Webmaster, December 2011
