LMUD Presents: This Day in Susanville History – January 15th, 1950

Aerial Search Made in Lassen
January 15, 1950

Two pilots failed to spot any signs of plane wreckage at Norville Flat Wednesday when they covered about 20 square miles in an aerial search of the area.

A section hand at Norville Flat had reported to the Westwood authorities that he saw a flare of light about ten days ago, that lit up his whole cabin.

Dave Barr of the Susanville Municipal Airport checked with the Civil Aeronautics Association at Reno upon request of Sheriff Olin S Johnson, and learned that two planes were reported missing at about the time the section hand reported he saw the flare up.

Mr. Barr and John McLeod flew over the area Wednesday morning while Dr. A. E. Priest flew over later in the day with a passenger, and neither of these attempts revealed any trace of the plane.
