The Luck of the Irish!

Irish Times, September 26, 1962 — Mr. Robert R. Ward, 26, of Kerrykeel, County Donegal, who was formerly in the R.A.F. arrived safely at Nutt’s Corner airport, County Leitrim, yesterday, thankful that he had cancelled his passage on the ill-fated Super-Constellation (Flying Tiger Flight 923)

He had booked a seat on the plane on his journey from Pennsylvania to Northern Ireland, but decided to cross the Atlantic on a later plane to give him time to meet some friends in Washington, D.C. He was greeted at the airport yesterday by his sister, Mrs. Jane Dowds, who was delighted to find him well.
