On November 9, 1938, two Army pilots, Lt. Col. Leslie MacDill and Private Joseph G. Gloxner, were burned to death in a horrific wreck blocks from the Capitol en route to Bolling Field in Anacostia, Maryland, following a demonstration and training flight in a BC-1 pursuit aircraft. Three automobiles on the ground were also crushed.
