Could Happen On No Other Day -- April Fool's Day, 1942

"Here is what the Kingsport Times' photographer, Ronnie Ezell, claims is the prize picture of the year (well, day anyway). He says this plane sliced the steeple at the First Presbyterian Church and despite the condition of the airplane's wing fluttered off in the direction of Gate City. (Or maybe the photographer said he was the one who had just fluttered in from Gate City.)" [Kingsport Times (Tennessee) - Apr 1, 1942]
