April[edit]

  • April 1 – An aerial photogapher and his female assistant in a Cessna 337D Skymaster don oxygen masks to climb to 28,000 feet (8,535 meters), not knowing that the plane's oxygen tanks have mistakenly been filled with compressed air instead of oxygen. She becomes unconscious and he dies of hypoxia. The Skymaster climbs to 27,700 feet (8,443 meters) before entering into a high-speed spiral dive in which it sheds its left outboard wing, tail booms, and empennage. The remainder of the plane falls almost five miles (8 km) into a tree on a golf course 15 miles (24 km) west of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The woman miraculously survives both hypoxia and the crash, suffering only minor cuts and bruises.[2]
