Stanley (rear seat) in an airplane after their return to Pearson Field in Vancouver, Washington, on Friday, January 7, 1927. Kelly is handing his parachute to a man on the ground. A similar photograph, image No. 371N1395, was published on Page 3 of the Oregon Journal on Saturday, January 8, 1927. According to a story that accompanied the photograph, Kelly and Stanley had left on Wednesday, January 5, to conduct an aerial search for a boy, Leslie Brownlee, who was missing on Mount Hood. However, they were caught in a storm and dense fog, the Journal reported, and were forced to fly east and land in a field about five miles from Long Creek, in Grant County. According to the article, they spent the night in the field with the plane and walked to get help and fuel the next morning. On their return flight, they were delayed by another storm and spent the night of Thursday, January 6, in Pendleton before continuing to Vancouver on January 7.
