No Signs of Cesna Aircraft with Three Men Aboard; Disappeared Six Days Ago

Download PDF for this date

The Lebanese government has advised Israel through the International Red Cross that it has found no signs of a Cesna aircraft with three men aboard that disappeared six days ago while on a cloud-seeding flight over northern Israel. The plane was spraying clouds with silver iodide in an attempt to stimulate rainfall. A sea and air search by Israeli forces failed to turn up any clues.
