Today (Friday) we had four aircraft in the air.
Â John Nauman, a “friend of Jim” and pilot, flew the coast from San Luis Obispo north to the Golden Gate.Â Results were similar to yesterday — no Tenacious in whole or debris.
We had a charter twin engine flight leave out of San Carlos at approximately 2pm.Â They flew over deep water from Santa Cruz south to Big Sur and out about 20 miles in an S pattern.Â Same results as yesterday — no Tenacious and no debris.
The two other flights were flown IK Curtis out of Burbank California.Â One plane flew north to Morro Bay, CA.Â The second plane flew south to the Mexican border.Â The results are similar to all other previous flights.Â No Tenacious.Â Very little if any debris.Â Â
Â We have now completely covered the coast of California, a few locations three times.Â We have learned how technically difficult it is plan and execute searches over deep water.Â Personally, I have my respect for the work the USCG performed has only multiplied as we have tried to do what they do so well.
We are currently researching the possibility of one more flight over deep water.Â It will probably be the last one we launch.Â Â John Nauman and his wife plan to fly the coastline from roughly from the Golden Gate north to Eureka.Â
Several of us will discuss over the weekend whether to continue launching our own search flights.
