Beechcraft 1900C


In this March 2013 photo taken by pilot Rene Joubert and released by the family of Jerry Krause, the twin-engine Beechcraft 1900C aircraft that Krause was flying when he disappeared on April 7, 2013, is shown parked at an unidentified location. Ten days ago, on April 7, Krause disappeared together with his plane just miles from a refueling stop at a West African island in the middle of a tropical storm of thunder and lightning. Since then, searches with a plane and boats have found no trace of Krause, a 54-year-old American missionary and pilot, or the plane that he was flying from South Africa to Mali. Family members say that the plane had been refurbished and the exterior repainted in early April in South Africa.
