vestigate the c r a s h, the
news agency said.
The plane, an Ilyushin 62,

from Moscow with stopovers
in Frankfurt and Lisbon.

ed to make an emergency
landing w i t h one engine

jetliner with four turbofan
engines mounted in hori-
zontal pairs along each side
of the rear fuselage. It ac-
commodates up to 186 pas-
sengers.

County State Atty. Tom David-

may decide the hell with it."
Belcher had served 1b months
of an 18-month sentence for a
$75 burglary when he fled the
work camp in 1951.
He was a passenger in a

ing the driver's license, Olson
said he noticed Belcher was
fidgety. "He seemed a little
nervous," the policeman ex-
plained yesterday. "So we ran
a check on him and came up
with a hit -- a 26-year-old war-
rant . . . you never know what
you're going to find these
days."
The warrant from Ilills
borough County was dated Dec.
7, 1951, according to Circuit
Court records.
Belcher told investigators he
had carved out a quiet life for
himself - worked, married
twice, and fathered several
children who made him a
grandfather.
Belcher was brought to the
Hillsborough County booking
station Thursday and trans-
ferred to the county jail yester-
day.
Detective Jack Whidden
didn't use handcuffs when he
escorted Belcher.
"If he hadn't done anything
wrong in 26 years, then chanc-
es are he isn't going to try any-
thing now," said Whidden. Lat-
er on, he thanked me for not
putting the cuffs on him."
According to court records
Belcher was arrested on Jan.
16, 1951, shortly after a $75
camera was stolen in a service
station burglary.
