Martin Devine, Saturday, August 15, 1936

1, Martin Devine, 3132 ward StrMt, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, do depoee and say that I recall the late Oustave Whitehead and an airplane of hia construction which I helped push upon more than one occasion for a demonstration. The plane was heavy and I do not recall being preaant upon ih.e occa«lon of Its flight, but believe I arrived Immediately after It crsshsd Into a brick building, a newly constructed apartment house which I believe was on the O'Meale estate. I recall that someone was hurt and taken to a hospital, but do not recall what ona . I am able to Identify the Inventor as Gusfcave Whitehead froa the picture of this man showed me by Miss Stella Randolph. The plane was heated 1th charcoal and the place of most of the experiments was In the vicinity of the present McKee Pis oe and Louisa Avenue. Whitehead lived on Bates Street (I think about 663 or 664) with some people named Morrow, renting a part of their house, I believe,

As definitely as I nan recall the plane was upon wheels.
