Crash claims Noles

From the

Sarasota Herald

Vance Noles took off from the small airport at Wimauma on Wednesday morning, flying an aircraft he built himself from a kit. Noles, 72, was flying his RV-7 to Tennessee to pick up a friend in the single-engine, two-seat plane, a flight he had made several times before.

But Noles never arrived.

A search began, and on Thursday officers from the Florida Highway Patrol and Baker County Sheriff's Office in North Florida located the wreckage of Noles' plane in a wooded area about a mile south of Interstate 10, near Jacksonville. Noles was killed in the crash.
