Solomon Islands JFK PT-109

Once known as Plum Pudding Island, this is where 25 year old John F, Kennedy and his surviving crew of PT 109 swam to after the final piece of the hull sank below them and they were left with one option, swim or perish. They swam 3 miles from the point of the wreck of the PT 109 and fell exhausted on the beach of this island. While looking for the island I caught this plane in flight.
