To add about Stan , durning that fire he dragged people (Stan was a big man in more ways) out of the plane several times, and died making yet another rescue attempt. I remember reading somewhere that a seaman, who was rescued, said he was floating in the sea waiting to be rescued ,at the same time Stan died, claimed that singing The Mary Ellen Carter over & over is what helped him to hang on until his rescue.
