Bill P. - It was like the chat room ate radishes and kept repeating. I refreshed and signed out 3 times and then it finally showed 4. I have set other records, which shall remain secret. :)

Being a former Navy pilot, can you imagine landing a small twin engined plane alongside the Pollock Rip Lghtship? A vessel you knew of or heard as a kid? Landing on a carrier is one thing, landing at sea and coming back home is another.
Did you ever serve with any pilots that had amphibious plane experiences?

Cynthia, could you repeat that for me. Thanks

Just kidding! I think 4 is a record.

Thanks. I forgot that I had shared that info with Don Wilding several years ago. The photo I had was not very good so I was looking for a better one. There were 18 named CG aircraft ("seaplanes") during the period from 1933 to 1936, all named for stars. The ADHARA, which had landed earlier in Pleasant Bay while the crew visited Old Harbor Station, actually was an RD2; the MIZAR an RD-4. All fairly small twin engined craft, flown by gutsy men..
