Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated April 17, 1963 partially reads, "Two men flying in a rented helicopter escaped injury today when they crash-landed in an alfalfa field in Van Nuys. Rowe E. Cavelli, 29, of 3826 Markridge Rd, La Crescenta, pilot of the craft, said he took off from Santa Monica Airport this morning. After touching down in the Sepulveda Dam flood basin, the helicopter tried to rise again, but only reached an altitude of about 150 feet when its engine failed. Rowe said he was demonstrating landing and take-off instructions to his passenger, John Lear, 20, of Wichita, Kan."
