A plane missing for 24 years was found partially submerged in Lubbock's drought-stricken water source. Friday, a canoeists found the plane in lake Meredith.
It was confirmed to be the fuselage of a small, two-seat Beech 77 that went missing during a two-hour flight in 1984.
A National Transportation Safety Board report says that the 25-year-old pilot and a passenger died in the crash.
The report says that in the first two days after the crash, one of the plane's wheels and a jacket, believed to be the pilot's, were found floating on the lake. The plane and bodies never turned up during a six-day diving search.
A park service spokeswoman says that the area around the wreckage has been closed so the site can be investigated.
Lake Meredith, about 20 miles north of Amarillo, is at just 8 percent of its capacity of 500,000 acre-feet. That's according to the latest monthly report from the Texas Water Development Board.
