Thank you for the update Steve.
Off topic in the rescue community here.. not many of these transports are "off the grid " I would believe that if Joe were flying a hound someone would know.
The whole thing just breaks my heart
Agreed, we hate to see these things happen. I just found out about this a couple of days ago. Seems if he was transporting a pup, the volunteers on each end of the flight would know something was amiss.
Hopefully he'll be found OK, but with each passing day, it's not looking good. Blue skies and tailwinds, Joe!
I've seen that quote about Joe flying a furry passenger a few times lately myself and wondered where that came from. As I too would think that a Sending/Receiving rescue would have come forth and said that they were waiting for a furry passenger to arrive via Mr Radford thus would have given a somewhat of a flight path since it was stated that one wasn't placed. Had Joe been picking up and dropping off a furry passenger would this not have given search and rescue an idea of a flight plan than? anyways I haven't seen any rescues either sending or receiving step up and say that Joe was doing a transport for them so it is hard to believe that he was. I think as the original story that came out he was simply flying his plane March 11 and sadly something went amiss.
Prayers that he finds his way home safely
