Longstaff(sic), a former English army officer, probably was mortally injured this evening while flying in a Farman biplane with his mechanician, Pierre Chavellier. When only seventy feet in the air, a wire became jammed and the machine instantly overturned and fell. Longstaff's skull was fractured and he is seriously injured internally. Chavellier is seriously, but not mortally injured. Longstaff holds a public license from the Royal Aero Club of England. He had been flying as a scout with the insurgent army in Mexico until recently."
