Title supplied by cataloger. Two men were en route to Santa Paula Airport when their plane lost power, after it reached 150 feet, and crashed nose down in a field, about 250 yards north of the San Fernando Airport runway. It was believed that strong winds may have played a role in the crash. A fire fighter, holding a hose, examines the wreckage of a single-engine Bellanca Super Decathlon, which crashed during take-off from San Fernando Airport. On the right, the remains of one of the plane's two passengers is seen being carried away on a stretcher by four men, including three fire fighters.
