Copter Crash Kills Son of Carmel Couple
A helicopter crash in a wilderness area of lower Colorado has claimed the life of Alonzo Roland Calder, 28, son of Mr. & Mrs. A. Bland Calder of Carmel. The crash happened Monday while young Calder, a commercial helicopter pilot, was making a contract flight in the area near the Arizona border. He had just deposited his passengers, surveyors for a new road through the region, on a knoll and was flying back when his helicopter failed and crashed. He was flown out by a rescue helicopter, and taken to a nearby hospital, suffering multiple injuries. He died at 4:30 a.m. yesterday. Calder was born in Shanghai, during his father’s service of more than 30 years in China, the Far East, and for two years in Russia as a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce and later of the State Department. An only son, young Calder was a veteran of service in the Air Force. With his wife, the former Mary Peters, he made his home near Redlands. In addition to his wife and his parents, he leaves a year-and-ahalf old daughter. A second child is expected early in December. Mr. & Mrs. Calder left Carmel yesterday to join their daughter-in-law at Redlands. Funeral services are pending and will be announced later.
