Photograph article dated August 13, 1962 partially reads, "Seven persons escaped injury Sunday night when their airplane made a belly landing in the center of Glenoaks Blvd. in Sun Valley. The twin-engine, 10-passenger Aero Commander was headed for a landing at nearby Lockheed Air Terminal when it apparently lost power, police said. The craft, carrying four children and three adults, narrowly missed one car as it made a bumpy landing near Vinedale St. south of Sunland Blvd."; See images #00124100 through #00124101 for all photos in this series.
