Boothbay Harbor, Maine – April 22, 1974

     At about 5:15 p.m. on April 22, 1974, a small plane containing a student pilot and his instructor took off from an open field in the town of Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  According to witnesses, just after takeoff, the plane lost altitude and crashed in a large body of water known as Adams Pond.  Both men made it out of the plane and began swimming to shore when the student pilot disappeared.  The instructor successfully made it to shore.
