Duchesne County authorities said all four men were killed instantly in the crash. Arnold Wilson, scoutmaster, said the single-engine craft appeared to stall out. He said the Piper Cherokee then went into a steep dive, crashing near the scout troop. Victims were identified as Gene Wilson, 41, of Springville, pilot of the aircraft; David Brent Bird, 35, of Salt Lake City; Joseph Ferris Hoover, 36 [26], of Pleasant Grove; and George A.

Life timeline of Joseph Ferris Hoover

1948
Joseph Ferris Hoover was born on 7 Nov 1948
Joseph Ferris Hoover was 9 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Joseph Ferris Hoover was 15 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
