                              our very first DEW line patrol and guess where the nearest gas station was

                              that would take the captains credit card?.  It was a great liberty stop.  Every

****                      The following article appeared in the Honolulu Star Bulletin on December 24, 1957.

                               2 Dead, 17 Missing “Drill” Said Crash Cause; Navy Silent.  A

                              surviving officer was reported to have said a Navy Super Constellation with

                              23 persons aboard was holding a fire drill at 1500 feet when all four

                              engines suddenly stopped yesterday and it crashed into the ocean.  The

                              crewmen were not available for direct interview by the press, however, and

                              the Navy first denied, then refused to confirm or deny the report.  It was not

                              known whether the engines stopped operating or because someone

                              accidentally shut them off for some other reason.  Early reports from the

                              rescue scene indicated the plane exploded on impact with the water.  But

                              Rear Admiral L. B. Southerland of the Airborne Early Warning Wing said

                              he didn’t believe the plane exploded on impact, but may have caught fire.

                              The plane was a RADAR-loaded WV-2 from the VW14 attachment of

                              Barrier Squadron 2 of the Airborne Early Warning Wing stationed at

                              Barber’s Point.  Survivors Listed.  Four survivors and two bodies have been

                              found.  The 17 others aboard are still missing.  The Survivors are:  1 –

                              Commander Guy Howard, the Executive Officer of the Airborne Early

                              Warning Squadron to which the lost plane was attached.  He was aboard to

                              check on the pilot during the training flight.  2 – Lieutenant (jg) John

                              Thomas Kline, reported to be the man who said the engines cut out while a

                              fire drill was in progress.  3 – Lieutenant (jg) Richard L Rentschler.  4 –

                              Franklin A Henry, an Aviation Electronics Technician, third class.

                              Howard, 41, lives in Oakland California.  Kline, 25 and his wife Barbara

                              live at 2961 Kalawao Place, Honolulu,  Rentschler, 22, is from Lincoln,

                              Nebraska and Henry, 22, is from Kankakee, Illinois.  The survivors were

                              brought to the Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station in the crash boat from

                              that base that picked them up.  Henry and Rentschler were taken to Tripler

                              Army Hospital. Indications were that Howard may have sustained a skull

                              fracture.  In Washington, D.C., Navy Officials said the casualty list from the

                              plane will not be ready until tonight and that it will be made public as soon

                              as the next of kin of the men were notified.  The big plane went into the

                              water yesterday afternoon about 25 miles North of Kahuku Point,

                              westernmost tip of Oahu.  Search planes and surface craft are concentrating
