Silent news outtakes from April 6, 1958, when a midair malfunction caused Capital Airlines Flight 67 to crash short of the runway at Tri-City Airport near Freeland, Michigan, killing 47 passengers and crew members.
Begins with exterior shots of Tri-City Airport (now MBS International Airport), serving Midland, Bay City, and Saginaw, Michigan. The footage then shifts to interior shots within a makeshift morgue at Dow Chemical's hangar, where numerous dead bodies have been covered in white sheets and laid down in rows. Shots of emergency vehicles, Michigan State Police, and healthcare workers surrounding the building. A body is wheeled on a stretcher and lifted into an ambulance as law enforcement directs traffic. The film ends with shots of the Vickers Viscount 745D aircraft, still smoking, parts strewn across a muddy corn field.
