Relive Local History with Patrick Smith, Commercial and Scientific Diver
In the spring of 1945 in the skies above the Santa Barbara Channel there occurred a tragic mishap, a mid- air collision that resulted in a tragic loss of two naval aircraft and the lives of four airmen. In the overall sweep of WWII it was a relatively insignificant event that was quickly forgotten, but it would provoke questions and generate research over the next 40 years.
