#TBT Aircrews from Coastal Patrol Base No. 21, Beaufort, NC located survivors of the Panamanian motor tanker Panam, torpedoed by U-129 on the morning of 4 May 1943. CAP aircrews spotted the tanker's survivors, and relayed this information to the U.S. Navy. Seen here in this photo, the CAP coastal patrol members in their Stinson Voyager 10A circle above as the subchaser USS SC-664 picks up the survivors. A Navy ZP-14 blimp photographed the rescue.
