Boston Harbor – September 23, 1973

     On the night September 23, 1973, a twin-engine Beechcraft Baron aircraft with a lone pilot aboard left Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, bound for Logan International Airport in Boston.  Shortly before 11:00 p.m., as the aircraft was passing over Boston Harbor and approaching Runway 4R,  it suddenly disappeared from radar.  The aircraft and its pilot were recovered from the harbor a few days later.
