News Article - Antelope Valley Press (Palmdale, California) - Thur, Jul. 24, 1975 Valley Ranchers Killed in Airplane Collision
Two members of a well-known family of Antelope Valley ranchers - Howard W. Beery, 52, and his son, Joe H. Beery, 21, - were killed when the light plane Joe was piloting collided with another private aircraft over Miramar Naval Air Station near San Diego Tuesday.
According to published reports of the accident, the two Valley residents were on their way back to Lancaster from Lindbergh Field, San Diego, when the collision occurred.
Funeral services are pending at Mumaw Funeral Home, Lancaster.
The Beery family has owned and operated a large ranch on the Valley northwest side at 75th St. W. and Ave. A for many years.
The two men were in a Cessna 180. They had departed Lindbergh Field only minutes earlier when the craft collided with a Beechcraft Bonanza also carrying two people. The pilot of the Bonanza, a San Diego man, managed to bring his craft down safely at Gillespie Field, at nearby El Cajon, despite a badly damaged right wing. Neither he nor his passenger were injured.
The accident was said to have occurred at about 4500 feet over the military air station.
