Rescue Signal Tracked To SD Aircraft
June 13, 2010, 5:08 PM
SIOUX FALLS,SD - Civil Air Patrol crews from South Dakota and Nebraska have located an aircraft emitting an emergency signal. But, the South Dakota CAP wing says, there was no crash or injuries to prompt the rescue alert.
The signal that first went out early Friday evening was coming from an aircraft owned by a Murdo pilot. The South Dakota CAP wing says the source of the signal was located about 5 p.m. Saturday, and the pilot was contacted to shut it off.
The South Dakota CAP wing says prior to locating the source, air crews had anticipated searching for a downed aircraft between Rapid City and Ainsworth, Neb. Severe thunderstorms delayed the search, and crews on the ground worked to pinpoint the signal's location.
