Turner Sees Sabotage Cause
Indianapolis, Oct. 25 -- (UP) -- Col. Roscoe Turner, famous speed flier and aviation authority, said today the United Airlines transport crash in Bryce canyon, Utah, was "very likely a case of sabotage."
He said he was "certain" there could have been nothing "mechanically wrong" with the plane.
"There are many people in the world today who would like to see this country fall behind in the race for military and commercial air supremacy," Turner said.
"I feel sure there are powers in the world who are gloating over this catastrophe."
Santa Monica, Oct. 25 -- (UP) -- Douglas Aircraft said today the baggage compartment of its DC-6 plane was equipped with a regulation fire extinction[sic] system, but admitted that, as on most planes, the compartment could not be reached from inside.
Chicago, Oct. 25 -- (UP) -- J. A. Herlihy, United Airlines vice-president, said today that the firm's DC-6 Mainliners logged 3,500,000 miles of air miles before its flight 608 caught fire and ploughed into a plateau on the edge of Bryce canyon yesterday.
