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 fog conditions.  The crew of a fishing boat saw the aircraft passing nearby at a low altitude over the water, and then disappear into a fog bank in an area called Brown’s Bank off the coast of Plymouth, Massachusetts.   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.
