The other consisted of answers to a long series of questions put to him at Alexandria Hospital where he is recovering from injuries. Just before the Bolivian's statement statement was read Into the CAB rec- cord. Carroll E. Harvey, an eye witness to the disaster, testified that the four-engine transport turned off its landing course Just before it was rammed by the P-38. It was the fourth such account. account. Harvey said the airliner "leveled "leveled off slightly, turned left." At that moment, he said, the fighter plane seemed to hit smash Into the DC-4 Just back of the wing. Towermen have testified that Rlos did not follow Instructions to circle the fielc} while the DC-4 landed. When the P-38 also failed to veer off as ordered, they said, the transport was ordered to turn left. It was beginning its turn when it was hit. One of them, Robert Union, said they had only seven or eight seconds to avoid the crash once it was sure the two ships were on a "collision course"--too little time to snatch up a red emergency emergency warning light to ward off the P-38.

But. in general, his story added up to this: His right engine started acting up soon after he took off to put he P-38 through a final test be- ore approving Its purchase by Boltvia. He asked for--and re- ·eived--what he understood to be ower permission lo land after another plnne. He lowered his weels and flaps ireparatory to landing, he said, meanwhile searching the sky for he plane he was expected to ollow in. He said he didn't see he DC-4 but he did see another 'lane which he tok to be either · C-45 Beechcraft or a C-60. "As far as I was concerned.
