On July 7, 1946, Hughes crashed with an American plane prototype he was building for the Air Force, the WF-11.
This day, he crashed on the house of Rosemary deCamp, in Beverly Hills. He broke his ribs, had the ribcage pushed in and suffered from 2nd and 3rd-degree burns.
Reporter Hedda Hopper told that when he was at the hospital and while he was immobilized, he was attracted by the picture of a young woman on the cover of many magazines, it was Norma Jeane. The story tells that he ordered to engage her. But Ben Lyon, the talent scout, had engaged her a week earlier.Actually, it was exactly Hedda Hopper's article (sagely announced to the press by Emmeline Snively in order to create a kind of activity and to promote one of his agency's girl) which started the events.
They divorced in 1970.Website
