Charles Mack, 36, of Springfield, Mass., had been sitting next to Miss De Moriere on the second leg of Allegheny Airlines flight 928 from Washington to Providence, R.I. Between Philadelphia and Windsor Locks, site of Bradley Field, the wind began screaming through a gap that opened around the rear door, Mack said. Miss De Moriere, a native of Paris and a veteran of two years' service with Allegheny, went forward and brought back co-pilot Thomas Hawkins. Together they stuffed pillow cases around the loose door, Mack said. "The noise stopped," he said. "She sat down again and we chatted. A little while later, she said, 'Excuse me. I have to • announce our descent.' " The terrific blast of air ended Miss De Moriere's annoucement. A second stewardess, Katlvy Lacey, 20, of Washington, was coming out of a lavatory at the rear of the Convair When the outside dioor blew open. According to an airline spokesman, who spoke to the pilot, the rush of air ripped off the lavatory door and caused | Miss Lacey to stumble, but one ' or more passengers steadied her. The spokesman said he doubted Miss Lacey was in danger of falling out of the plane. Officials of the Civil Aeronautics Board and the Federal Aviation Agency were to begin investigating the icident today. The loose outside door had been reported to Bradley Field at about 8 p.m. by pilot Harold Gould, 38, of Alexandria, Va. Two minutes later, Gould radioed back that the door had gone and Mis s De Moriere had been "ejected." After landing the twin-engine plane with all 47 passengers safe and sound, Gould helped state police plot his approach course in an effort to pinpoint the spot where the stewardess had fallen. A helicopter equipped with searchlights buzzed back and forth over tlhe course, guiding the' searchers on the ground. However, it was Robert Swingle of Farmington, a town several miles west of Hartford, who found the body. Swingle had gone out lo hives- tigatc a noise and had found a pillow and other debris from the plane in his yard. He called police.
