Pilot Was Taking Ship To Ower On Pacific
Erle P. HALLIBURTON, Duncan oil man, said Saturday that Frank GLENNAN, killed Friday in an airplane crash near Guadalupe, Mexico, was his pilot and that he was returning a borrowed ship from Duncan to Glendale, California.
GLENNAN left Duncan Thursday and spent the night in El Paso, taking off from there Friday morning, his employer said. He had expected to reach Glendale, where his wife and two children live, last night.
HALLIBURTON was puzzled by the location of the crash, which he understood was southeast of El Paso and off the pilot's course. As far as he knew, GLENNAN was alone in the plane. He said GLENNAN had been flying for him several years and previously was employed as a pilot by an airline then owned by the oil man.
