July 17, Saturday:
Coast Guard started the search and rescue mission early morning. Half a dozen Massachussettes state police officers on all-terrain vehicles began combing the Gay Head shores at about 5 AM, found broken pieces of styrofoam insulation floating ashore, a mile stretch of Philbin Beach, less than two miles from the 500 acre estate owned for years by Jaqueline Kennedy-Onassis. What an irony! Later airplane headrest was floating about three miles offshore. By noon, discovery of luggage, carpeting, landing gear and headrest.
July 18, Sunday:
Outpouring condolence from around the world, well-wishers gathered at the TreBeCa in upper-Manhattan, where Jaqueline Kennedy once lived, to pay their respect, but still many couldn't accept the reality hopefully waited for a miracle. Yellow ribbons were tied to the lamp posts with hope. Fear and sadness covered the Kennedy compound, as well as every American.
But later in the press conference, when the coast guard said in despair "we're going to shift from our focus on 'search and rescue' to 'search and recovery'," everything was clear and anyone could read between the lines.
Search and rescue bagan early Saturday morning and ended when it became clear that the Kennedy's plane had crashed into the Atlantic off Martha's Vineyard. The Coast Guard estimated its cost for the 'search & rescue' mission for the first two days even before completing the recovery. Still no clue of the missing plane, after combing 9000 sq. miles of Ocean.
