    Navy Jet?

    Anyone heard any more about the Navy plane that was missing a couple of days ago?? I saw one snippet that said it had been found, but didnt give any more details.

    1. Are there any survivors?
    2. Why did it go missing?

    They've found it somewhere around here. I heard a snippet on the radio coming home. It appeared to have caught on fire before the crash according to early reports. All four aboard were killed.

    ATLANTA, Jan 12 (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy jet headed from Tennessee to Florida two days ago crashed in northern Georgia, killing all four people on board, authorities said on Thursday.

    An investigation was under way after the wreckage of the Navy Sabreliner T-39 jet was found in Walker County in northwest Georgia late on Wednesday following a daylong search, an aide with the Georgia State Patrol said.

    Navy Jet Crash Victims Identified

    Here's a short article I ran across while reading something else.

    http://www.11alive.com/news/news_art...?storyid=74536

    The four victims on board the Navy T-39 Sabreliner when it crashed are identified as Navy Lt. Jason E. Manse, 30, of Canton, Ohio; Ensign Elizabeth Bonn, 23, of Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; Air Force 1st Lt. Jason W. Davis, 28, of Vista, Calif.; and retired Navy Cmdr. Dave Roark, 68, a contract pilot from Pensacola, Fla.
