Metro crash investiga

By United Press International
Federal investigators studied the twisted, charred
wreckage of a Lear jet yesterday at Detroit
Metropolitan Airport to learn why a wing tip scraped
the runway and exploded on landing, killing six men
aboard in the ensuing crash.
The cause of another airport disaster in Grand
Rapids 10 minutes earlier was not so mysterious, in-
vestigators said. The pilot of an air taxi said ice was
piling up on his wings as he tried to make an
emergency landing. Four died in that crash.
AMONG THE victims in the Detroit tragedy
were four top officials of Massey-Ferguson Inc., a
major farm implements manufacturer. They were
heading home from a corporate meeting in Iowa.
The National Transportation Safety Board sent in-
vestigators to the scene yesterday to join officials
from the Federal Aviation Administration. None was
available for comment.
Witnesses said the twin-engine jet's approach from
the east on Runway No. 9 appeared routine until the
moment it touched down. Suddenly it became a
flaming, disintegrating ball that blazed 800 feet down

the runway.
GLENN STAATS of Kansas City, a passenger who
had arrived on a commercial flight moments before,
said the jet "sort of bounced off the runway."
Louis Sugo, an airport spokesman, said the right-
wing dipped, causing a fuel pod to strike the concrete
and explode "into a fiery ball of hell."
"The plane literally disintegrated into three or four
chunks," he said. "The plane was pretty badly
mangled. The fuselage, where the bodies were trap-
ped inside, ended up 200 feet away."
THE WRECKAGE settled directly in front of the
airport fire station. Although the flames were quickly
doused, four occupants died at the scene and two
others were dead on arrival at a nearby hospital.
The Massey Ferguson executives aboard were
William Murray, president of the firm's Canadian
operations; Robert King, the Detroit-based director
of product services for North America; Robert Cam-
pbell of Detroit, the firm's purchasing director, and
Helmut Mack of Toronto, director of finance for Nor-
th America.

promotion and the rapid turnover of.the
mostly student clientele.
"WE WERE definitely into jazz when
we opened up," said Dennis Webster,
one of four co-owners of the Earle. "We
were hoping there would be a large jazz
market... now we're going to em-
phasize the food.
"We always wanted to stay away
from rock 'n' roll. But we want'to get
away from just jazz. Even when you
come just for the tapes, you'll hear
more than just jazz - Linda Ronstadt
kind of stuff, popular R & B," he said.
Neil Scott, Eclipse co-ordinator, said
Ann Arbor had more jazz last fall than
ever before. "Obviously, with the
Earle, we had more competition in
town," he pointed out. Scott stressed,
however, that the relationship between
the Earle and Eclipse never developed
into an intense rivalry.
THE JAZZ audience in Ann Arbor
had been growing steadily since Eclip-
se's first concert - McCoy Tyner in
November, 1975. By last spring, Eclipse
had become extremely successful: It
made enough money in just one year to
put a hefty down-payment on an $18,000
sound system.
Hoping to cash in on a share of the
ready-made jazz audience, the four co-
owners of the Earle - Webster, Ernie

THEY SPENT four years renovat-

December, 1977, the Earle became the
newest haven for local jazz enthusiasts.
The first act was Burgess' band

By April, the Earle had hired as its
music director Michael Grofsorean, the
former Eclipse co-coordinator who had
a reputation for attracting nationally-
known stars for bargain prices. Soon
the Earle was charging $5.50 admission
for big name acts such as the Per-
suasions, Dexter Gordon, and Woody
Shaw, all the while supporting a gour-
met luncheon menu till 2 a.m.
However, on most days the Earle was
serving to only a handful of customers.
And the big name acts, according to
Webster, sold well but didn't make
enough money to cover the overhead of
running a full-scale restaurant and a
concert hall under one roof. Even when
an act sold well, the small 180-seat club
could not generate large revenues.
