High Flight Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . . Up, up the long, delirious burning blue I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or ever eagle flew - And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
On Monday, Feb 21, Josh flew up to Portland in his Glasair, tail number n262wg. Shortly after Midnight, Feb 22, he left Portland destined for Crescent City, CA. Josh had radar service with FAA Seattle center while in route to Crescent City (CEC). Around 2am, Seattle ATC recieved a message from Josh saying that he had visual on the airport and was terminating radar service, switching to the local airport frequency for his final approach. This is the last transmission he made.
Josh and his plane have still not been located. The body of Maria L. Flores was found 700 yards offshore, near the Chetco River. Maria was a passenger in the plane with Josh.
Our thoughts and sympathies go out to Josh, his family, Maria's family, and Josh's friends.

Nothing found so far. Appearantly the divers are battling with four feet of visibility and large numbers of boulders on the ocean floor. The search is supposed to continue next week.

The last radar contact with Josh's plane showed him at 400ft above ground. His plane executed a 270 degree turn and then fell out of radar contact. Search and rescue gave him a 2 hour window to be rescued.
