  • Description

    This is the USS Boston, flagship of the american task force searching day in and out for the missing nuclear device and aircraft debris scattered when two military aircraft collided in mid-air. The search has been going on intensively for over 7 weeks, but this is the first time the navy has unveiled its works to the newsmen of the world.

    Task Force 65 now numbers over 2,500 men. It includes 15 ships, ranging from a guided missile cruiser to a tug bout. And in addition it boasts of the most sophisticated underwater equipment.

    The naval task force has found and retrieved over 175 items, from the wing of a plane to bits of metal weighing a few ounces. One hundred twenty one of these finds were located by frogmen and scuba divers.
