     On May 8, 1943, a U. S. Navy aircraft with two men aboard took off from the Quonset Point Naval Air Station in Rhode Island.  The pilot was a British flight officer, who had an American observer aboard.  The names of the men and the type of aircraft is unknown.  At some point the plane crashed into Mt.
