Michael D. Farrow, 19, son of Maureen and John Farrow was killed in a collision of two private planes in the air over the San Fernando Valley. Police identified him by papers on his person and by a former roommate, Ron Walrod, by a description of tattoos on Michael's right arm.
Michael was in one plane with David H. Johnson, 21, a flying instructor at a small airport at suburban Pacoima. The other victim, flying alone in the other aircraft, was Donald W. Preneville, 39, of nearby Glendale. The single-engine planes collided at about 600 feet in clear, sunny weather and fell 200 yards apart at opposite sides of a gravel pit, near the airport.
According to police, he had a student flying certificate.
