Off Plymouth, MA. – November 3, 1991

Off Plymouth, Massachusetts – November 3, 1991 

     At 11:00 a.m. on the morning of November 3, 1991, a single engine Piper L-3 aircraft (Reg. No. N6AN) took off from Norwood, Massachusetts, with two men aboard.  While off the coast of Cape Cod, the aircraft encountered thick fog conditions. The crew of a fishing boat saw the aircraft pass nearby at a low altitude over the water, and then disappear into a fog bank in an area known as “Brown’s Bank” off the coast of Plymouth, Mass. They didn’t witness the crash, but at 2:20 p.m. another fishing boat came upon the wrecked plane floating upside-down in the water with one person still inside.
