The so-called "Lost Squadron" involved the disappearance of 14 men of Flight
19 that began a training mission from Ft. Lauderdale Naval Air Station. It led to
one of the largest air and sea searches to that date. Hundreds of ships and 
aircraft combed thousands of square miles of the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf
of Mexico, and remote locations within the interior of Florida. No trace of the
bodies or aircraft was ever found. Flight 19 remains one of the great aviation
mysteries.
