Chief Kennedy in Air Crash Chief Fred Kennedy, of Indianapolis,, and three others were in an airplane crash which was described as “one in a million,” and are still able to tell about it. After a four-day visit to Miami, Fla., they were returning in a Stinson fourseater plane when it crashed on a farm near Nashville. The plane had run out of gas. The ship cut trees and came to a halt with its tail hanging over a fence. Just to prove that such a thing meant nothing to them, the men boarded an Eastern Airline plane and continued their trip.
