A Lockheed L-749A Constellation aircraft operated by Air France on the flight AF152 en route from Rome, Italy to Beirut, Lebanon ditched 10 km (6.2 mi) off the coast of Fethiye, about 2 km (1.2 mi) off the island Kizilada after midnight on August 3, 1953. The cause of the accident was a propeller failure. The lighthouse keeper Durmus Arikan rushed to the accident site by boat and rescued some survivors. He also alerted customs officials and fishermen who helped in the rescue. Of the 8 aircrew and 34 passengers on board, 38 survived the accident while four passengers drowned. The location of the aircraft’s wreck underwater is still unknown. –Wikipedia
