Four Are Injured in Fall of B-26 Bomber at Texas Air Base

EL PASO, Texas, December 9, 1941 – Three Army fliers were killed and four injured today in the crash and burning of a B-26 two-motored intermediate bomber just east of Biggs Field, Army Airport at Fort Bliss.

The dead were Major Mark K. Lewis, Jr., pilot; Major David P. Laubach and Staff Sergeant M. A. Miullo.

The injured were Major S. W. McLennan, Corporal F. J. Rizzi, Corporal L. H. Whitman and Private W. S. Tracy.

A flight of several bombers was taking off when the accident occurred.  Major Lewis’s bomber evidently developed motor trouble and the plane circled back toward the field but crashed before reaching it.
