I just want to take a minute and give a huge shout out to our amazing public safety departments in Telfair and Wheeler counties. Some full time,some part time, some volunteer. No matter the hour, our the day. These people respond without hesitation. Last night (most will not know) Steve Adams along with myself got a very different and rare text msg. It stated that there was a distress becon coming from or in the area of our great little telfair/wheeler airport. Not to prolong the story anymore Steve and myself responded and coordinated a response to this issue. Our amazing first responders ( all agency's don't want to miss somebody) responded without hesitation. Several state agency's also were involved. We also had the help from "Jimmy ray" Barry "Brian Screws" "Jake Boney" and several other pilots showed up. It was great to have that knowledge by our side. Long story short the becon cleared itself. We as a group were given all clear from the FAA and Air Force Rescue Communication Center. SO with that being said, THANK YOU to the responders. Your sacfrice does not go unnoticed.
