In the 1960’s a 2-seater piper cub went down and both occupants were killed. Although the location was once known to Maine Wardens the information has been lost. The families of the victims are interested in reconnecting with the crash site. Mike said teams will have access to lean-twos and tent sites and can arrive on Friday night. Beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday he is planning a large grid search in the general area of the crash. The terrain is a hardwood stand so it is relatively easy moving.He would like a count by the 19th, please RSVP to Mit if you are planning on attending. FYI Sunday October 28 is the smalls falls rope rescue training, Mit will likely go to Baxter on Friday and return late Saturday or early sunday to make the rope training.
Update: this search was cancelled by BSP at the last minute so that park employees could prepare for incoming storm, Hurricane Sandy. It may be rescheduled later this fall or in the spring of 2013.
