Uncle Ronnie

My uncle, Ronald James Dickson (stage name Jim Dickson), was part of the cast of a TV documentary called "Primal Man" in 1974. The cast and film crew were all killed in a plane crash on the return flight from the shoot at Mammoth Lakes area in California.. This makeshift memorial, made from wreckage, is near the crash site, on top of the mountain, with the airport in the background. They were aloft only minutes before the crash.

I was living with him when it happened. I remember waking to the sound of my aunt crying in the living room after having seen news of the crash on television. We lived in Hollywood CA at the time.

Aunt Laura Dickson, if you Google yourself and see this, email me. I would love to see you and catch up.
