The "City of Bangor" run a ground on rocks off of the shore of Copper Harbor on Nov. 30, 1926. The ship froze up in Lake Superior. They made a ramp on to the ice and drove all but 18 of the Chyslers off to the shore. Now the ship is used for Scuba diving tours.

Call Numbers

Most corporate aircraft that engine nicelles on the fuselage, like say a Gulfstream, Leer etc; can have there numbers on the engine covers on both sides..European aircraft do not have numbers, but letters...same locations..Military acft. have there numbers always on the tail...70-353, would describe the aircraft as being built in 57, the second set of numbers are the manufacturers build number for that aircraft...
