  1. I am looking for an email address for Lisa Daly. I am interested in a plane crash in which my father was involved in March of 1944. It took place on the approach to the airport at Stephenville, Newfoundland. It was a C-54 flown by a TWA crew under the auspices of the ATC. I can be reached at the email address listed below and would much appreciate a response.

    Thank you.

    • Hello Paul,
      I will send you an email after the weekend with any information that I have. I believe I have been to that site, and can send you my report.

  2. Glad to see the updates, Lisa, from the files at the LAC! The aircrew’s names give your blog a poignancy. If you would like the men’s photos, please let me know. (If you are open to sharing your photos with me, I would greatly appreciate that for my research and future book and presentations.)

    If I make it to Gander, I am hopeful we could visit the site together.

    • Hello Anne,
      I did promise you pictures a while back, didn’t I? I have been swamped with work, but after this weekend I will send you a bunch of pictures of the site. I would love to see pictures of the men, it is nice to give faces to names. I actually try to put the names in in such a way that they should show up in search engines, in case anyone tried to find their loved ones.

      And you let me know if you ever make it to Gander and I will do my best to come out to the site with you, plus show you around (they have a great aviation museum).

  3. Was just glancing through your site and saw that you are looking for information on the 1956 Logy Bay crash that destroyed a home and killed the pilot. I have researched this crash extensively and had a two-part story about it published in The Telegram in 2015. I have the official USAF crash report and much more. Happy to share with you if you want to contact me.

    • Hello Gary,
      Thank you for commenting and for your email. I’m always happy to share information, and your help will allow me to do up a post about the 1956 Logy Bay crash, probably in time for the seasonal opening of the Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove Museum so people can see the exhibit that your research helped create.
