Note VP-892 NoticeNote

Note NOTICE: "...We are working on a project regarding Navy aircraft flying above our ship December 18-20, 1950. The USS McKean (DD-784) and the USS Frank Knox (DD-742) encountered a Soviet submarine near Sasebo, Japan. Crewmembers of both ships reported that a US Navy patrol plane was above our ships during the encounter. One aircraft reported that one submarine had taken a stern shot that just missed our ship. We think the planes could be from VP-6 (28 Jun 1950-12 Feb 1951), VP-22 (01 NOV 50 to 01 MAY 51), VP-42 (19 JUL 50 to 01 APR 51), VP-46 (15 JUN 50 to 06 MAR 51), VP-47 (07 JUL 50 to 01 JAN 51), VP-772 (01 SEP 50 to 01 JAN 51) and VP-892 (18 DEC 50 to 01 AUG 51) squadrons that were flying near Sasebo, Japan at that time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Richard Shaw rpsha@cox.net..." [26APR2007]
