Corel and his brother Kenneth DuMont became interested in flight in their young adulthood. Both took flying lessons in Lincoln where they became friends with Charles Lindbergh. They built their own planes and flew from the pasture near their home.
Corel Sherwood was killed on his twenty-first birthday when his plane crashed near Ellis, NE in 1925. He was giving rides to a group of children, his last flight was with an adult. His grave his marked by a propeller of his plan, a photograph of himself, and a letter from one of his buddies, Charles Lindbergh.
Corel met Charles Lindbergh when they attended Lincoln Flight School together, and Lindbergh would often visit to help him work on building his airplane. He loaned Lindbergh money to leave Lincoln (a copy of the letter from Lindbergh returning the money is mounted on a marble pedestal next to Corel's grave marker). Upon his death, his mother Pearl received a letter from Charles Lindbergh expressing sympathy at Corel's passing.
