Henry Goldsmith Killed in Plane Crash

Henry R. Goldsmith, who was flying with his friend Francis Phillips, as a passenger in his airplane, died in Nassau Hospital, Mineola, a few hours after the plane crashed in flames at Roosevelt Field, Long Island. Phillips was trapped in the burning plane and died. Goldsmith was pitched out far enough to enable rescuers to seize his unconscious form. He was a parachute salesman and aspired to fly a plane.
