  • The Coast Guard suspended the search yesterday for two men who were onboard a Piper PA-27 aircraft that apparently went down around Plana Cays, Bahamas, early last Thursday. Not long after the men left Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport en route to Grenada, the air controller lost radar and radio contact with them. After searching more than 7,400 square miles, there was no sign of the two men or their aircraft.

  • The Coast Guard helped to enforce a safety zone during yesterday’s demolition of Champlain Bridge over Lake Champlain. The 2,184-foot-long steel bridge that linked Crown Point, N.Y., with Addison, Vt., was deemed irreparable and closed on October 16, 2009. Construction of a new bridge is scheduled to start in the spring after all the debris is removed from the waterway.
