ELT Register to wrong aircraft

Real sad, we lost this pilot while he attempted to travel to Valdez for the Fly in. The worse part is his ELT was registered to a foreign government agency and marked with a country code from Ireland, according to a preliminary report the agency released late last week. That apparently outdated information may have complicated search efforts in the immediate aftermath of the May 12 crash.

Being a former SAR member - This is real horrible, if you own a plane make sure your ELT is register to your aircraft
