Long Island Sound – November 10, 1980

     On the night of November 10, 1980, a twin-engine Piper Navaho with four people aboard left Worcester, Massachusetts, for an unknown destination.  At 10:25 p.m. the aircraft disappeared from radar while over Long Island Sound, about eight miles southeast of Stratford, Connecticut.   Shortly before hand, the pilot had radioed that the aircraft was low on fuel.   A search and rescue mission was instituted, however nothing was found, and it was called off due to bad weather.  All four persons aboard perished in the accident.
