I was off-line for a couple of days while I went to a memorial service for my late grandfather who passed away this past spring.
Anyway one of the parts of his life mentioned was the fact that he was a US Marshall up here in Alaska before statehood. He was on a USCG Albatross (2121) that cracked up in December of 1954 outside Haines Alaska. He made it but his prisoner and a couple of crewmembers where killed. The surviors spent a good hour out in the water before the town could get boats in the water and out there.
Anyway, I was hoping to find a copy of the crash report. Somebody has to be sitting on it somewhere. I have found a couple of web-references that refer to it as a "Medivac" flight, which is different then the family story.
Anybody know where I might be able to track it down?
