Chicano anti-war activist found in Canada after 44 years
(PNS reporting from MONTREAL) A Los Angeles man who had not been heard from since he fled to Canada in 1970 to avoid the Vietnam War draft has been found in Montreal, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
When Albert “Sleepy” Dominguez missed the 1970 Chicano Moratorium in Los Angeles, noone knew he had quietly slipped out of the country the night before to go underground and avoid conscription to Vietnam.
Dominguez, then 19 years old, went so underground that neither family, friends nor the U.S. government could locate him to inform him that he was never, in fact, drafted.

BSAA airliner over Andes transmits ‘S T E N D E C’ in Morse, vanishes
The British South American Airways (BSAA) Avro Lancastrian airliner (registration G-AGWH) took off from Buenos Aires, Argentina enroute to Santiago, Chile on August 2, 1947.
Star Dust’s final Morse code transmission to Santiago airport, S T E N D E C, was received by the control tower four minutes prior to its planned landing and repeated twice:
… – . -. -.. . -.-.
… – . -. -.. . -.-.
The Morse transmission sounded just like this:
Star Dust — like Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 and Argentina’s Cadet Flight — was never heard from again.
And what does S T E N D E C mean? No one knew then, no one knows now.

Deja vu all over again: Where in the world is Argentina’s TC-48?

The so-called “cadet flight” was never seen again.
Will a new search expedition have better luck?
