"Apalling views of the wreckage of two airplanes, part of a ‘flying circus,' that crashed in mid-air while performing aerial acrobatics over Amarillo. One falls to the street, killing its occupants, while the other crashes through the roof of a building nearby, badly injuring the pilot." [From original Universal Newsreel content sheet]
