Abstract:

A search was undertaken during May 1965 for a U. S. Navy jet aircraft that went down in the Buzzards Bay area on April 29, 1965. The operational procedure of the search, as well as the capabilities of the three instruments that were used in it -- side-looder, magnetometer, underwater TV -- are described. Several anomalous situations are shown and discussed, and recommendations are made for future searches of a similar nature. Author
