Flight Steward Kenneth Tubbs with Super Constellation VH-EAO Southern Aurora at Lovelock, Nevada on 12 August 1959. En route San Francisco to New York, a vibration in the number four propeller was experienced during cruise at 13,000 feet. Unable to feather the propeller, the aircraft diverted to Lovelock, Nevada after dumping fuel. The engine seized and shortly after at 1,500 feet on base leg, the propeller separated. There was no further damage and the aeroplane landed safely. Picture: Kenneth John Tubbs
