TWELVE DIE AS BOMBER GOES DOWN.
Tucson, Ariz. -- (AP) -- Twelve of the 20 crew members of a Jamaica-bound B-29 died in the flaming wreckage of the four-engined bomber a few minutes after taking off from Davis-Monthan Field.

The plane crashed last night a few minutes after it had taken off from the Davis-Monthan field on a routine flight to Varam Field, Jamaica. Army air corps investigators were assigned to investigate the cause of the crash.
