I have been at the Sussex Airport where the missing a/c from there took off from. For a number of years, that airport has held a very good air show, with a national level aerobotic and stunt flying show, usually held in late August. One of the preformers for many years was a mainline commercial airline pilot. Sussex airport is popular with commercial airline pilots for their GA
flights and live in that extreme northern area of New Jersey (only a few miles from the northern tip of the state of NJ
). Significant parts in that area of NJ
include local, state and federal park/forest land, private wooded areas, old farms, ponds and small lakes and increasily more large homes and lots. One fear from the Sussex crash is that the plane may have ended up in a lake or large pond, and just not visible or is in deep woods. I do fear that the pilot (the only person on the a/c) is dead. God rest his soul.
