Pilot Disappears on Solo Flight Across Atlantic

May 30, 1939, Flier Vanishes

On June 9, 1939, in a heavy predawn mist, a Welsh trawler came across the wreckage of an airplane in the ocean 130 miles from Milford Haven, Wales. The ship recovered some of the debris, then the tides shifted and the skipper was unable to locate the plane again.
