The Gadsden Times, Thursday, Feb. 5, 1942 front page: TRAINING SCHOOL INSTRUCTOR KILLED, COMPANION INJURED. The newspaper article states that Robert Jackson Newton, 20, flying instructor at the Gadsden Training Service School was killed and a companion, Fred Reinhart, about 17, was critically injured when their plane crashed in a field just off the highway near Crudup, 8 miles north of Attalla. Both pilots were licensed. Forrest General Hospital doctors said Rinehart was badly broken up sustaining a severe skull fracture, a broken back and neck and numerous other injuries and the physicians held no chance for Rinehart to survive. Young Rinehart was the Gadsden Times carrier at Clubview Heights and Rainbow Drive for the past two years. His parents died several years ago and he was making his home with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. B.C. Milam, on Rainbow Drive. R.G. Lee, dairyman on Rainbow Drive is his grandfather.
