On 16 oct 1956, Pan American Airways Clipper Flight 943 "The Sovereign of the Skies" ditched in the Pacific Ocean near the Coast Guard Cutter Ponchartrain, which was station-keeping between Hawaii and California. Through excellent preparation, the plane ditched without loss of life, and my brother was able to grab a few frames of the event. The images were picked up by wireservices and used around the world. Bill's on the far right in the image below.
