Museum member, Captain Jon Myhre died on October 6,2018, surrounded by his family in Palm Bay, Florida. He was a PFC in the U.S. Marine Corps then transferred to the US Army in 1965. He was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam war who served two tours and was a highly decorated hero. Jon was one of the leading experts on the history of Flight 19. He authored a book, The Discovery Of Flight 19. He also is responsible for the historical marker, remembering the 13 crew members aboard the PBM- Mariner lost during the search for Flight 19. The marker sits next to the sea plane ramp at what was previously NAS Banana River and is now Patrick Air Force Base. He was continuing his research, attempting to uncover the mystery of December 5, 1945 even during his final days. He will be greatly missed and remembered through his works and the legacy he left behind in the museum.
