Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. On 22 December 1978, a small Cessna 188 aircraft, piloted by Jay Prochnow, became lost in the Pacific Ocean. The only other aircraft in the area that was able to assist was a commercial Air New Zealand flight. After several hours of searching, the crew of the Air New Zealand flight located the lost Cessna and led it to Norfolk Island, where the plane landed safely. On 21 December 1978 Jay Prochnow, a retired Navy pilot, was delivering a Cessna 188 from the USA to Australia. Prochnow had a colleague who was flying another Cessna 188 alongside him. The long trip would be completed in four stages. On the morning of the 21st, both pilots took off from Pago Pago.show more
