Profile of a Flying Midshipman – Howard Jenkins (Howard Jenkins)

Many of you knew this personable giant–­Captain Harry Tarleton Jenkins, Jr. USN, (Ret). Harry died in a plane crash on August 2,1995, at Prescott, Arizona on a return trip to San Diego from the annual Experimental Aircraft Associ­ation convention and air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He was flying the experimental Long Eze design he built in his garage in Coronado, California, over an eight-year peri­od. He had flown this plane for nearly five years before this accident. His aircraft crashed during take-off when the engine lost power due to magneto failure. His son, Chris, a passenger, survived the crash.
