Lowndes County - A South Georgia military base is helping in the search for a missing Navy aircraft.
The Navy T-39 Sabreliner was scheduled to arrive in Pensacola, Florida, around 3:00 Tuesday afternoon. It disappeared from radar shortly after it took off from Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Searchers are looking for the aircraft in an area around Carters Lake in North Georgia, and airmen from Moody Air Force Base are helping in that search. Tuesday night, one of Moody's C-130's ran the route the Navy plane had flown but found nothing. Another C-130 left the base to help with the search Wednesday, and several HH-60 helicopters are on standby.
"Moody's primary mission is search and rescue, and just as we saw with the Katrina and Rita efforts, we're ready to step up to the challenge anytime we're called, and here we are taking the opportunity to help our sister service," said Captain Gary Arasin.
A Navy instructor, a Navy student, an Air Force student and a civilian contract pilot were aboard the Sabreliner. Authorities have not released their names.
