Dale the famous plane photos were of the Str. J.C. Rawn blowing up at Huntington on December 7, 1939. The aircraft was photo mapping the city and caught all of the explosion in sequence. The J.C. Rawn blew two of her three boilers, killing three crew. There is a book written by I believe Michael Walters on boiler explosions on Western Rivers up to 1965, the date published. In it he stated there were NO boiler explosions after the Joe Cook.
