Standing by a damaged Aeromarine 40 flying boat (Bureau # A-5066) in the Gulf of Bacabano, Cuba, 25 May 1923. A boat from USS Hannibal (AG-1) is also present.
This aircraft was assigned to assist Hannibal in survey work in Cuban waters. It had hit something on the water or broken a hole in its hull by hitting a wave. The accident left the plane's wings and hull unfit for further use and it was subsequently stricken from the list of Navy aircraft. Pilot was Lieutenant (Junior Grade) John H. Hykes, USN.
