1st Lieutenant Fortine was killed when the U.S. Marine Corps AD-5 Skyraider he was piloting went out of control and crashed into an industrial building in Long Beach, California. His radar operator, Corporal J. P. Licato, was able to bail out and parachuted to safety before the plane impacted ground. Two civilians, Austin W. (Pat) Rafferty, 43, and Ethel Foust, 39, died in the warehouse.
