Advocate (Newspaper) - May 8, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 1 TELEPHONE HI VICTORIA, TEXAS, FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1964 Established 16M 16 Cents California Plane Crash Fatal to 44 Few Clues After Blast CONCORD, Calif. ty-four persons perished Thurs- day In a Pacific Airlines plane crash and explosion so violent that only basketball-size pieces of wreckage remained. The twin-engine airliner from Reno plunged nosefirst into a gently rolling pasture 40 miles east of its destination, San Francisco. It carried three crew person- nel and 41 other persons includ- ing two Federal Aviation Agen- cy employes. Silver And Bible .Silver of Neva- da an open Bible were sprinkled through the de- bris. Federal officials tried to piece together the cause of the crash from the wreckage, a garbled radio transmission, a reported puff of smoke from an engine ol the Fairchild F27 turboprop and accounts that the plane was fly- ing unusually low. A California highway patrol- man found a loaded Smith Wesson revolver on the ground near a shattered engine. It was presumed to have been carried by George Lacau, a San Fran- cisco police inspector. Lacau and his wife died in Uie crash. The impact area is about 15 miles southeast of Concord in Contra Costa County. Saw Plane Rancher Gordon Rassmussen said he saw the plane coming in and that it "faltered, there was a puff of smoke and it crashet a.mile away from my ranch." Mrs. Richard C. Collins, said. "There was a big explosion. I'm not sure if it was an impact or just before." Her husband sate the plane would have crashed in to the San Ra mon Village had it cleared the hill into which it plunged. Thirty-three passengers go on Pacific's Flight 773 at Rem and 10 more got on at Stockloi for the 26-mlnute flight to Sat Francisco, filling the plane t capacily. Two Reno passengers de- barked al Stockton. Garbled Message An FAA spokesman said tha shortly after a routine messag from the plane, the pilot trier to message Ihe FAA again. "But the Iransmission was garbled. II didn't sound natura It could have been the pilot o copilot trying to tell us some the official said. A Uni ed Air Lines Flight 593 pilo above Ihe doomed plane said h also heard a garbled messag' then saw a puff of smoke.
