waters quarter of a mile east of Meigs field.
	The piston driven plane sank 90 seconds after a controlled touchdown
amid spray and waves, but Bishop managed to climb out of the cockpit.  He
clung first to the wing, then to the tail of the sinking ship.  He was
unconscious when two firemen in a 14 foot rowboat recovered him from the
lake.  He was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital.
