"What Happened in 1935 to United Flight 4?"
A free, educational program hosted by the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society,
will be oﬀered on Tuesday, April 11th in the Sunﬂower Room of the
Laramie County Library in Cheyenne.
The program will be presented by Ken Hargraves, Cheyenne resident,
who has researched and studied the incident. He will share an intriguing
story about one of Wyoming’s first airline accidents, which included a mystery
man, a connection to Herbert Hoover and the deaths of nine passengers
and three crew members.
United Airlines Flight 4 was a Boeing 247D operating on a scheduled ﬂight from
Salt Lake City, Utah, to Cheyenne, Wyoming, on October 7, 1935 on a
clear evening with unlimited ceiling. The aircraft last contacted
Cheyenne at 2:16 a.m. reporting its position as Silver Crown, west of Cheyenne.
The tower called the ﬂight at 2:17, receiving no reply. The wreckage
was located three miles east of Silver Crown. This program sheds
light on that story.
Registration is not necessary for this program, which is open to the public. The
meeting begins at 6:15 p.m. with a social followed by a short business meeting and the
program at 7:00 p.m. For more information, call 630-0924.
