Excerpts from Newfoundland Posts and Telegraphs Daily News Journals January 1928 Jan. 3: Despatch from Portland, Maine records the belief that the missing plane "Dawn" sank soon after passing Cape Cod on the night of Dec. 23rd. Capt. COMEAU of the Nova Scotia schooner "Rose Ann Belliveau" reports that a plane was heard by him and that the roar of the powerful motors ended abruptly with an audible splash and his belief is that the plane made an unsuccessful attempt to alight alongside the schooner after sighting its lights. This apparently agrees with the report made by radio operator on the steamer "Okey L. Alexander" that while passing Cape Cod the same night he heard a message requesting Chatham Station to furnish compass bearings. After a silence of a few minutes operator says he heard come through the air, words "Plane down". The crew of the Newfoundland schooner "Ena A. Moulton" was landed on the 31st at Plymouth, England. Terrific storm was raging when the "Darford" responded to distress signals from the schooner which was waterlogged and her canvas had been blown to pieces while the crew was exhausted by long hours at the pumps. Jan. 5: Message from Magistrate FITZGERALD of Grand Falls yesterday stated that Claude NEWMAN aged 15, was drowned at Botwood whilst skating on the harbor ice.
