|April 30th Weather Update|
We had a little excitement on board for the Saturday day cruise....My bridge lookout noticed a small plane flying erratically and very low to the water. He was also impeding the main ship channel entering Port Canaveral by flying very low up the channel. (6-10 ft above the water). I reported him to the USCG station in Port Canaveral as a hazard to navigation.
About 45 minutes after this he crashed into the sea near the end of the ship channel. I immediately turned and brought the Victory 1 to the scene to assist and coordinate the rescue operations. The pilot was pulled from the wreckage by a local fishing vessel. The plane quickly sank to the bottom......
Law of the Sea #1.....you always come to the aid of others that are in trouble....
