Quincy Underwater Recovery Team

On October 4 1960 radio and television stations sent out an urgent plea for scuba divers across New England to head into Boston's Logan Airport. A four engine commercial airliner had crashed on take-off. Members of the South Shore Neptunes spent the entire night searching for survivors and recovering the bodies of those who perished. After this incident Steve Burg, Nix Elgin and John Blackadar utilized 10 to 12 members of the South Shore Neptunes and formed the Quincy Underwater Recovery team. Over the years the underwater recovery team have been called many times to recover the body of those who have perished in the water. These archive will list Newspaper articles of some of the people we have recovered.
