Banner plane crash in the bay – perhaps 1970s


There was a recent crash in 2020 of a banner plane in 2020 where two lifeguards rescued the pilot.  That plane crashed into the ocean. This is a photo of a crash in the bay from perhaps the late 1970’s or maybe the 1980’s.

As I recall, this plane crashed in the middle grounds just north of Barrel Island. Unfortunately I don’t recall the year or other details. It was definitely a banner plane and the pilot was rescued. It isn’t every day that you see a plane in the bay.
