Naudé's Ventura bomber "Aircraft K" stuck in loose sand after
landing two miles from the castaways to try to rescue the babies and women.
Naudé is sitting in the roof hatch signalling with a white sheet to the investigating aircraft of Major Robbs that his plane is manned, though helpless.
Major Robbs' plane has acknowledged Naude's signal and the messages he
and his crew had written in the sand nearby, and has left the scene.
Naudé sits disconsolately atop his thoroughly bogged bomber.
