Re: US Navy Parachute Incident July 16, 1929

The aircraft was XT3M-4, A-7224.

One propeller blade detached, following which the engine was torn from its mountings. Fortunately Erickson managed to land it with just minor damage.

I can confirm that it was Chief Radio Electrician O.E. Williams who jumped.
