The owner of the plane, Dwight F. Peterson of Gardena, reported the plane missing on Sunday morning. A note on the hangar door said the plane would be returned in 10 days. The plane was smashed into a hillside in Mint Canyon, the propeller broken and the fuselage bent.
With mountains visible in the background, the small white plane sits in a pile of brush, its nose on the ground. One of the wings has the serial code NCI5630 in large black letters.
Photograph appears with the article, "Plane Thief Net Spread," Los Angeles Times, 11 Feb 1936: A3.
