Jet Missing Since 1971 Found Submerged In Vermont’s Lake Champlain

Experts believe that they have found the wreckage of a corporate private jet 200 feet below the surface in Lake Champlain in Vermont that fatefully crashed more than 50 years ago.

The private plane, with the registration N400CP, disappeared shortly after taking off from Burlington en route to Providence, Rhode Island, on Jan. 27, 1971.

Pilots Donald Myers and George Nikita along with passengers Richard Windsor, Robert Williams and Frank Wilder were onboard the 1971 flight.

Despite 17 separate attempts – spanning decades – the wreck was never found.

But the jet’s crash site was unearthed last month by underwater searcher Garry Kozak and a team of researchers.

Kozak said that the team used sonar imaging to confirm the plane’s custom paintwork matched the missing jet.
