Thank you Derek... Trying to confirm aircraft.. there is a serious fuel fund set up so if you know someone that can donate a plane we can cover the fuel. No singles as the search is getting further offshore.

2 people spotted in the water off of Tybee Island.

Fingers crossed.

Tons of mixed reports including rescue boats headed into the hospital and several helicopters flying up and down the beaches. VHF confirms potential people in the water with a PANPAN.

I'm out of the airlines now but fly a Piper Aztec based in VT for a guy. I can talk to him and see about moving it south. It has long range tanks and about 6-7hrs endurance.

Also I don't know what it's like in FL for aircraft rentals but I'm happy to crew anything if some one can get a plane. Sun aviation and flight safety used to rent Senecas if I remember.

I've got a place to stay in JAX and ground transport I'm just lacking the aircraft. I also have current spec military night vision and might be able to get some thermal by calling in some favors.

I can be there in 24hrs. Also my father is happy to help also. He is a 30,000+ hour guy. He can do anything from DC3, twin otter, king air, citation, and larger.

Good luck good hunting to the searchers!

You all are making me think I need to get back in the cockpit.

I'm going back to open up that VHF feed to see if I can hear any updates on this search. It's good to see some promising posts -- keep them coming.

Praying.

Even if you just want a second set of eyes I'll load my flight kit and NVG's into the car and head south from Vermont if you get the go ahead.

Might also be able to jump down to JAX on us air.

John and Derek if you need an NVG back seater let me know. I'm a commercial IFR rotary guy, so no help up front, but I've worn googles for 600+ hours and have no problems wearing them for 8 hours at a time.

No new news ??

Too bad I didn't have vacation this week. I'm not a pilot but I could have been a spotter.

I just put the word out with all my mates at Republic airlines. Working on getting guys that can jump seat where needed to act as spotters on days off.

Just called the Jet Blue guys to get the word out
