Crash Site

One Wallace Neff-designed Mediterranean-style spread in Beverly Hills is missing a garage, and now Curbed LA has figured out why. It turns out 805 N. Linden Street was struck by Howard Hughes' experimental XF-11 aircraft when it crashed in 1946 with Hughes aboard. The plane sliced through the bedroom—then occupied by actress Rosemary DeCamp and her husband—and tore the roof off the garage, which was later demolished. [Curbed LA]
