I visited your home page and had a smile or two from it -- I have a few old Dinkys on my shelf (doesn't everybody?) Incidentally, your "F-47" is really a "P-47." The F-designation was not used at the time of that version, which appears to be the H model, prior to 1948.[thanks and correctd, CB]

Lost in The Bermuda Tiangle
Marsh Harbour, Great Abaco Island, is a popular destination in the Bahamas. It was from here, on return trip, that Fred and Gloria Andrews took off on September 28, 1982, at 9:15 a.m.
They were heading to Fort Pierce, Florida. Most of the route is over or in the vicinity of Grand Bahama. Then from there across the Gulf Stream to the Florida coast.
Fred Andrews was familiar with the route and was a good pilot. He didn't bother or have the need to contact Miami. He knew his way around. After passing the last landmark on Grand Bahama, he headed northwest for Fort Pierce.
Miami was tracking the airplane's transponder code. At precisely 10:53 a.m. the signal suddenly stopped.
The search was continued until the 7th of October, at which point the units were finally disbanded to other duties.
It grows tiring to repeat that no debris was found and no Mayday was sent.
Weather was also fair: 2,000 feet scattered, 2,500 feet broken, overcast at 10,000; visibility 10 miles, light rain in some areas, temp. 77o, wind 100o at 6 knots.

Fred Andrews was flying another stalwart and popular Beechcraft Bonanza. He was also on a crowded route. No trace.
