turner owenFirst Lieutenant Owen W. Turner, 29, of Pleasure Ridge, Jefferson County, Kentucky, died when his burning plane crashed near Piedmont, Alabama on 28 January 1957 some sixty miles west of Atlanta. Turner was flying a T-28 from the Naval Air Station at Atlanta for a navigational proficiency flight to Standiford Field in Louisville. Turner decided to return to Atlanta because of worsening weather conditions in his flight path. Turner joined the Kentucky Air National Guard in 1948 and was a member of the 165th Fighter Interceptor Squadron.
