Search for Crashed Airambulance in Alaska Finally Ended


We have extensively covered the airambulance crash that took place in January this year where the all the three crew members of Guardian airambulance unfortunately lost their life. The aerial vehicle, for reasons not known still, had crashed in the sea. Patrick Coyle, who was the 63-year-old pilot; along with Stacie Morse, the 30-year-old flight nurse; and Margaret Langston, the 43-year-old flight paramedic had been in the airambulance. It was on the way to pick up a patient. The vehicle was a Beechcraft King Air 200. The crash occurred near Kake and extensive search operations had been undertaken to find the remains of the three.

Airambulance Company Called Off the Search

The airambulance company, in order to bring closure to the family of the victims, had tried to search for the remains of the occupants. However, even after over 2 months’ search, no remains could be found. The search and rescue operations were initially undertaken by the Coast Guard but when they were unable to locate the airambulance and had finally given up, the company had hired private agencies to locate it. The local people too had pitched in with their efforts to locate the medical flight.

Several Parts of the Airambulance were Found During the Search

The airambulance’s cockpit voice recorder was found and it can prove crucial in finding out exactly why the vehicle went down. The investigations into the crash are currently underway by the federal agencies. Other parts that were found were landing gear, parts of wings, blades of propellers, parts of engine, tail, fuselage, and the cockpit itself. However, it was quite unfortunate that no remains of the three people in the medical flight could be located. The medical flight organization thanked all those parties that were involved in the search for the aircraft over the past two months.
