Civil Air Patrol LtC.
Larry D. Sidle, of the Great Lakes Region, sent us the sad news
about the end of a search for two fly-in attendees:
Civil Air Patrol wings from Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana have been
stood down by Air Force Rescue Coordination Center in the search
for two men missing since last Saturday. Earlier this afternoon
[Sunday], local fishermen reported aircraft debris in an area north
of the departure airport, Short Creek and south of the Paris
Landing bridge on the eastern shore of Kentucky Lake.
The debris was located in an area previously searched by water
and air crews. It is believed that the debris surfaced overnight.
With the assistance of local residents familiar with the missing
airplane the Civil Air Patrol positively identified the debris as a
strut from the missing Citabria aircraft.
Currently divers and boats are searching and dragging the area
on Kentucky Lake for other targets.
Incident Command has been transferred from the Civil Air Patrol
to the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency. Further information
can be obtained from TEMA Public Information Officer
Kurt Pickering (615-741-0482).
During the search the Civil Air Patrol aircrews flew over 280
hours on over 100 sorties covering a search area encompassing
nearly 4000 square miles. Certain high probability areas of the
grid were covered several times. Incident Commander Kevin Fosberg
commented, "the search would not have been possible without the
unified efforts from the local residents, Calloway and Henry County
Emergency Management and law enforcement agencies, Red Cross, Coast
Guard Auxiliary and local businesses who donated food to volunteers
including Wal-Mart and Pizza Hut."
