a China Air 737 crash search.
Nav or plotting system on this project, just a chart with landmarks.
Peter was handed a Ducane receiver in Singapore - never seen one before
so he read the notes on the flight up - and was reported in the Taiwan
press to be a "crashed aircraft tech expert". The receiver was
supposed to detect the pinger of the aircraft's Black Box, but after
three fruitless weeks press reports were becoming somewhat derogatory towards
him. Then, after a session with a fortune teller, just days before
the batteries were expected to expire on the Black Box - success, and
Peter became an instant local hero!
