Star-News (Newspaper) - March 22, 1957, Pasadena, California Hope Fades for 67 Lost on TOKYO. (IP) A U.S. Military transport :planc wilh 67 persons aboard fell today into the shark-infested waters oil Japan where winds of near-typhoon force lashed the sea Into giant waves that hurled spray hundreds of feet Into the air. All aboard were feared dead. Brief hopes for the 10 crew members and 57 pas- sengers aboard the huge C-97 Boeing slratocruiser were dashed when a sighted "life raft" turned out to be an overturned rowboat with a straw mat floating beside it. A senior Air Force pilot said "it would have been near impossible to make 'a successful ditching under the con- plane would just break to pieces in high seas like this." The missing: aircraft was the second plane which the passengers and crew boarded Tuesday night at Travis Air Force Base, Calif. The first found to have a "minor maintenance prob- lem" as It prepared for takeoff and officers decided to substitute the plane which later was lost. Forty-eight U.S. Air Force and Navy planes searched an estimated square miles today without success as did a fleet of U.S. Navy and Japanese Coast Guard and fishing boats. The'Air Force said it would send out 70 planes to- morrow to search a area and nine planes during the night to look for flares. The search became easier when winds of 65 knots subsided and waves nearly 40 feet high turned into 30- foot swells. _ Disappearance of the plane brought to 109 the number of dead .or missing in a series of .six U.S. Far Eastern crashes the past month.
