Bill Kinsinger, Pilot Flying Missing Texas-Bound Plane, Was Dog Rescue Volunteer

A small plane that took off from Oklahoma City on Wednesday is missing after flying over the Gulf of Mexico. They reported that the pilot appeared to be the sole occupant of the aircraft and also reported that the pilot appeared to be slumped over in his seat and was unresponsive to their repeated attempts to attract his attention.

KJRH reports that "the FAA says a single-engine plane lost out of Oklahoma City was last tracked in the Gulf of Mexico; U.S. Coast Guard confirms it has sent out aircraft to do a search 150 nautical miles off the coast". He was a volunteer for the organization Pilots N Paws, which helps rescue animals nationwide.

The Coast Guard is actively searching for Kinsinger.

A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration said the privately-owned Cirrus S22T left Wiley Post Airport in Oklahoma City Wednesday at 2:19 p.m.

"We're still holding out hope that he will be found, and that a miracle will happen and we'll be able to hear the great news", she said.

Sears to Close An Additional 100+ Stores
No stores in the Northern San Joaquin Valley or Tuolumne County are on the latest closure lists for Sears and Kmart. During the most recent closings, the company shuttered Kmarts in Whitehall and South Whitehall Townships.

It was unresponsive to air traffic control instructions, the official said. They were later replaced by two F-15 jets from New Orleans that followed the plane until they neared Mexican air space, but returned to base because of the proximity and darkness.

Vice President Gia Fowler said they will now spend about $10,000 to rehabilitate the dog, saying he has problems walking, heart worms and matted fur.

The National Transportation Safety Board determined that a pilot suffered from hypoxia while flying golfer Payne Stewart and three others on a private plane from Florida to Texas in 1999.

Members of Pilots N Paws told KXAN that the dog Kinsinger was scheduled to pick up in Georgetown is an older husky unable to use its back legs. Very empathetic to everyone he volunteered with encouraging us to "save some more".

"It kind of hit home because I know exactly what he was going through as he was flying off", Torgerson said.
