Oh well... when some you loose some!

Oh Man!!... Sorry to hear this...but as Irg said...don't give up...find that sucker! I was in the same situation many years ago, and I went to a local airport and paid one of the flight schools $35.00 to fly me over the area where the plane was...yup..I found it...right in the middle of one of the largest bramble bush I had ever seen....I got it out, but sure got torn up doing it....
One last thing....from what I have heard of the pollution in New York Harbor...I don't think even a downed plane would get me to swim in it....of course I have never been there...so..maybe it's not as bad as what I have heard....
