    Oh how awful.
    My first thought was this might be a little single engine plane sporting around, flying over the lake. I guess not tho. Sadly, there won’t be a good outcome, imo.

    Authorities name 2 men in plane missing over Lake Michigan
    "It isn’t clear which man was piloting the plane that dropped off radar Sunday night about 4 miles (6.4 kilometres) west of Frankfort.

    The plane reportedly was having engine trouble and controllers had directed it to an airport in Frankfort when it vanished. Authorities have said the plane took off from Ontonagon in the Upper Peninsula and was heading to Monroe in southeastern Michigan.

    The sheriff’s office says the search now is a recovery mission."

    Just horrible, and to drop into such a dark, cold, daunting body of water.
