      Hi.
      I submitted a date of death change to the site for Mr. Fussell. He died in a plane crash when two planes collided over the airport in Columbus in 1947.
      Here is the story. He is incorrectly mentioned as Jack Russell, but his great granddaughter corrected it in the comments.

      AIR COLLISION CAUSES DEATH OF 9 PERSONS.

      Columbus, Ga. -- (AP) -- Nine persons were killed today when a special Delta airlines plane carrying eight employes of the company, including one top official, collided with a civilian plane and both crashed onto the airport here where they were enveloped in flames.
      The Delta plane was coming into the airport for a landing when, airline officials said, the civilian plane "came down from overhead and struck the tail of our ships." Both planes plunged 30 feet to the ground, the civilian plane falling underneath the tail of the Delta ship which had broken in half.
      The two planes burned for more than an hour after the crash. Flames made it impossible to rescue any of the victims.
      The Delta plane was on a survey flight. The name of the civilian plane pilot, the ninth victim of the crash, was not learned immediately.
      T. J. PEDDY, manager of Eastern Airlines here, said he was informed the training plane crashed into the tail of the Delta plane as the latter approached the end of the landing strip.
      The Delta plane was en route here from Macon where the Delta officials made a survey yesterday of airport facilities for a new alternate route between Atlanta and Savannah.

      The pilot of the civilian plane was named Jack Fussell, not Russell. He was my great grandfather. Also, this was initially ruled the fault of Delta airlines, later Delta was able to re argue the case and the ruling was flipped. Anyways, I appreciate the site. Kinda cool to read about it.
