Unfallbericht:
The Convair CV-240, used frequently by Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, departed Austin for a flight to Johnson's ranch. Around 19:30 the pilots requested the weather at the LBJ Ranch. The ceiling at the airstrip was 300 feet and the crew decided to return to Austin, but never arrived there. It was later found to have crashed in rugged hill country near the LBJ Ranch.
