Aviation buff/STL ramp agent for Trans States Airlines (aka American Connection) curiously researching and desperately seeking crash photos of an Ozark FH-227B, #N4215, flight #809, here in STL 7/23/73 during heavy thunderstorm on edge of University of Missouri St. Louis campus......happened when I was a teenager and the only fatal air crash in STL that I can remember. Already have microfiche copy of newspaper article and recently took current photos of crash site on campus. Any help would be appreciated.
