It’s been decades since two young aviators vanished after takeoff from the old Sand Point Naval Air Station. Once in the air, Ensign Gaston Mayes and Lieutenant, junior grade, Benjamin Vreeland made one last radio call and that was the last anyone heard from them. But two aviation buffs have refused to let the flyers be forgotten. They resumed the search and may have solved a mystery more than 70 years old. Also, Kenmore Air, the world’s largest seaplane company, marks a milestone! And we peer into the past, revisiting a gem from the Seattle Municipal Archives. Host Enrique Cerna has these stories from Magnuson Park.
