Mexico, January 9, 1952.
Photo taken by the local Grants Newspaper during the rescue of an F-51 pilot,
William H. Palmer of Dayton OH, who had bailed out the night before, south of
New Mexico. He had been trying to reach El Morro CAA field (LA-A site 59B) but
had to jump and broke his arm after hitting the tail surfaces of the aircraft.
El Morro Radio, originally commissioned in 1933, can be seen on the left.
