Wreckage believed to be from 1997 Michigan plane crash found
Government imagine they’ve came upon the wreckage of a small airplane that crashed greater than 20 years in the past in faraway northern Michigan.
Nationwide Transportation Protection Board spokesman Eric Weiss says nationwide wooded area team of workers discovered the wreckage Wednesday close to St. Ignace within the Higher Peninsula.
A single-engine Piper took off Sept. 14, 1997, from Drummond Island in Lake Huron. The 45-year-old pilot, Mark Davies, and his spouse, Janet, had been heading to Howell, about 300 miles to the south. A flight plan wasn’t filed.
The NTSB says the airplane was once observed on radar flying south, then turning and flying north. Then it disappeared.
A four-day seek failed to seek out the stays of the couple or the airplane.
St. Ignace is set 70 miles west of Drummond Island.
