June 25, 1950

THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, Michigan, June 25, 1950 

* Northwest Airlines 
* Flight 2501 disaster (1st report) 
* DC-4 airliner airplane 

This 40+ page newspaper has two column headlines on the front page: "All 58 Aboard Lost Airliner Presumed Dead" "Vast Lake Michigan Hunt Fails to Turn Up a Clew" with smaller subheads. Reporting continues on page 6 with related photos and list of the occupants on the plane.

Tells of the Northwest Airlines Flight 2501 DC-4 airplane disaster over Lake Michigan. At the time, it was the deadliest airliner accident in the nation's history.

Other news of the day throughout. Some small binding holes along the spine, otherwise good.
