Herald-Dispatch archive photo -
Three Navy airmen and a Huntington civilian student pilot were killed Sunday, Aug. 11, 1946, when a twin-engine Navy transport and a flight training plane collided in mid-air over the Ohio River and crashed about a block and half apart in Westmoreland. The Navy plane, which fell behind 3521 Auburn Road, carried Lt. (j.g.) John S. Row Jr. of Huntington, Lt. Commander Clark Lee Henderson of Staatsburg, N.Y., and Cecil Elbert Whitten Jr., of Hagerstown, Md., who had been an aviation machinist's mate second class in the Navy. The trainer plane, which fell on the Ohio River side of the floodwall, was piloted by J.P. Corkran Jr. of Huntington. Thanks to Paul N. Fulks for identifying the photo.
