Détails:
A Sikorsky S.41B amphibian sank after making a forced landing in thick fog off Gloucester, Massachusetts, USA.
The aircraft operated on a flight from Halifax, Canada, to Boston, USA. During an intermediate stop at Portland, Maine, the pilot received a weather report for the leg to Boston, which read: "clear with fair visibility". After passing Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a heavy fog bank came rolling in. The pilot descended to maintain visual contact with the ground and ultimately decided to perform a forced landing at sea. After touchdown a hole was torn in the left pontoon. The occupants evacuated on top of the wing. A fishing schooner rescued all but one of the occupants. The aircraft sank.
