    Members of the Downeast Emergency Medicine Institute and Old Town Aviation Explorers Post 787, a development program for youths interested in aviation careers, are partnering to search for the wreckage and possible remains of pilot Lewis “Billy” Hogan Jr.

    Hogan was 28 years old and working for LISAir when he left Danbury, Connecticut, at 8:15 a.m. May 2, 1972, in a brand-new, yellow-and-white single-engine Citabria. He was expected to land at Houlton International Airport later that day, but communication was lost somewhere between Kennebunk and Augusta. Search crews never found his remains or any trace of the plane.

    The team hiked Mount Waldo Saturday morning to search for the plane and Billy.

    Diane White remembers hiking Mount Waldo in 1979 and seeing plane wreckage. She hiked the mountain with the team to try to re-create her hike that day to try to find what she believes is the same plane.

    The search will continue into the spring until they find any signs of wreckage, so they can bring Billy home.

    Piloting a single-engine Citabria


    Circumstances: He was picking up a new Citabria aircraft from Connecticut to deliver to Lisair (his employer) in Houlton, Maine. The Augusta VOR was out of service and as he attempted to switch to it from the Kennebunk VOR, he became lost in a storm. He placed a mayday call that was picked up by the Portland, Maine airport at 1207 hours which was the last contact with him. It is believed his plane may have crashed in Southwestern Maine or Eastern New Hampshire in poor weather.
