Making landfall after a long patrol, the No. 6 boat of VP-91 heads home
to Southern Cross Airfield, Barking Sands, Kauai, Territory of Hawaii, in
May 1942. Even though the lighthouse on Kilauea Point below had its
light, and the nearby radio homing towers deactivated for wartime
security, aircrews making landfall at this northernmost point in the
Hawaiian Island chain always heaved a sigh of relief when seeing the
solitary structure, still a beacon of hope
