Three Killed in Scottsbluff Plane Crash

Scottsbluff - Three persons were killed Friday night when a converted B26, a two-engine plane, crashed less that a mile from the Scottsbluff Municipal Airport.
The dead were identified as pilot Everett Haxby, a veteran Scottsbluff flier, and Mr. and Mrs. Douglas E. Jones of Gering. The place belonged to the Banner Oil Co. and the trio were returning to Scottsbluff from Denver.
Jones, about in his 50s is the owner of the Banner Oil Co.
The plane, airport officials said, was coming into the airport when it suddenly disappeared off the radar screen. The wreckage was located about an hour later after the air and ground search.

Scottsbluff, Neb. Three persons were killed Friday night when a B26 bomber converted for civilian use, crashed northeast of the Scottsbluff Airport.
Dead were Doug Jones, about 50, Gering, Neb., his wife, and pilot Everet Haxby, Scottsbluff. The Jones were owners of the Banner Oil Co., Scottbluff.

Authorities said Haxby radioed for landing instructions and then the plane disappeared from the radar scope on its final pass. The wreckage was found in a potato field.
