Civil Air Patrol Responds to Locator Signals in South Dakota
The first ELT signal came from Arlington Municipal Airport, locating the plane in a hangar.
A second false ELT signal was also tracked to a plane at the Watertown Regional Airport.
Two ELTs active at the same time within 40 miles of each other is an extremely rare occurrence.
With both ELTs shut off, the search aircraft and ground teams returned to base and the AFRCC closed out the mission.
