It's for real: Seaplane ended up in and took off from Asc...

Trish Long, EP Times archivist, has posted 4 articles on the Navy P5 Marlin that made an emergency landing at Ascarate Lake in April 1960: http://elpasotimes e/2010/03/1960-nav y-seaplane-makes-l anding-at-ascarate .html. I confirmed VP-48 out of NAS North Island as the squadron by corresponding with the assigned plane captain and ordnanceman. Have collected quite a few clippings from NAS North Island, San Diego, & El Paso newspapers, plus a video of the takeoff. May post it on a website.  (Dec 14, 2010 | post #16)
