"Eternal Father Strong To Save"
The Navy Hymn
Sailor Aviators Version

Eternal Father, Strong to Save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bid'st the mighty Ocean deep
Its' own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to thee,
for those in peril on the sea.

Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces in the sky.
Be with them always in the air,
In dark'ning storms or sunlight fair.
O, Hear us when we lift our prayer,
For those in peril in the air.

But when at length our course is run,
Our work for home and country done,
Of all the souls that flew and sailed,
Let not one life in thee be failed,
But hear from heaven our sailors cry,
And grant eternal life on high.

May all our departed shipmates rest in peace.

Eternal Father by the U.S. Navy Band's Sea Chanters (668 kbytes - WAV file)

"NAVY PLANE SOUGHT"
Submarine Hunter With 10 Aboard Missing in Florida
New York Times
01 OCT 58


KEY WEST, Fla., Sept. 30 (AP)--Pilots criss-crossed 27,000 square miles of island-dotted water today in search of a Navy patrol plane from Maine missing with ten men aboard.

The Neptune submarine hunter was last heard from yesterday afternoon when it made a routine radio report to the Key West Navy Base. It had been on an instrument-checking flight with no definite destination.

The twin-engine land-based plane was flown here recently by a crew from the Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine. The men were being trained in anti-submarine warfare.

"PLANE YIELDS 3 BODIES"


7 Still Missing on Navy Craft Down in FLorida Bay
New York Times
03OCT58


KEY WEST, Fla., Oct. 3 (UPI)--Navy divers today found bodies in the submerged fuselage of a patrol plane that disappeared Monday, with ten men aboard. There was no sign of the other seven crewmen.

Searches found the main section of the submarine hunter plane in forty-two feet of water in Florida Bay, twenty-two miles north of here. The bodies were pinned inside. Immediate identification was not possible.

Nearby on the murky bottom was the starboard engine of the twin-engine P2V plane and the landing gear. Divers said they were having difficulty in searching the bay bottom because of a three-knot current.

The plane, on temporary assignment here from Brunswick Naval Air Station, Me., was on a routine training mission when it went down.

UPDATE "...My Father, LT(jg) Jerry Tannich, was lost while flying with VP-26 (SEE: In Memorial for lost friends Crew "Lost at Sea" September 29th, 1958). I would like to hear from anyone that may have known my Father...Jane Tannich jtquintanar@live.com..." [29NOV2011]
