The Alpena Chamber of Commerce is strategizing on how to keep Delta at their airport. This after the airline announced in July that it would be leaving.
Jackie Krawczak is executive director for the Chamber. She attended an airport committee meeting Friday in which members decided to hire a consultant to lobby Delta to stay. The committee has sent the suggestion to the finance department.
“I think while talking with different consultants throughout this process the odds are very slim. Probably the one said maybe a 20 percent chance that we could get them to consider Alpena again. But we might have a better chance if we can extend this process and if we can have more time to put numbers together to show some of the economic development that’s going on in Alpena that’s going to require better service than Alpena to Cleavland.”
If Delta does not reconsider Krawczak said the bid will go to Gulfstream Airlines.
A missing pilot was found by local fisherman off the coast of Forestville Michigan yesterday. The man went missing after his plane crashed into Lake Huron Tuesday night.
Officials said the pilot reported having engine problems in the early evening.
Shortly after that The Federal Aviation Administration lost contact with the plane.
Lauren Jorganson is with the Ninth Coast Guard District. She said the search began immediately after the failed contact.
The search ended after local fishermen found the pilot.
“The fishing vessel Eagles Nest located him and picked him up, brought him on board, and he was ultimately transported to shore. He was alive and in good condition. He was transported to shore and then taken to a local hospital as a precaution.”
Jorganson said the pilot swam approximately 15 miles toward shore before being picked up.
The cause of the plane crash is currently under investigation.
