THREE KILLED WHEN PLANE CRASHES
Peking, November 20
Messages from Tsinanfu state that all the mail was destroyed when the China National Aviation Corporation plane on its way from Nanking to Peking crashed yesterday afternoon.
The crash occurred during a fog, the plane striking one of the peaks of the Chingshan mountain range, ten miles south of Tsinan.
The plane burst into flames and both the pilots, Liang Pi-ang and Liang Kuan-yi, were burned to death.
The only passenger - a friend of the director of the China Aviation Corporation - was also killed.
NOTE: The only passenger was the grestest poet in Chinese history, Hsu Chi-mo. The aircraft was a Stinson.
