Over 40 years later, search resumes for missing plane in Lake Champlain

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Crews are continuing to search for a missing plane that went down in Lake Champlain more than 40 years ago.

The search started on Friday and is expected to continue through the weekend.

New technology is being used to search for the private jet carrying five people that went missing after leaving the Burlington airport on a snowy night in 1971.

New York and Vermont state police are putting divers and high-resolution sonar into the lake to search for any sign of the 10-seat Jet Commander that was headed to Providence, Rhode Island.

Some items from the plane washed up over the years.

The plane was carrying three employees of the Atlanta, Georgia, development company Cousin’s Properties and two crew members.
