A Novel - It is 1984 and the Canadian Forces are involved in what will become one of the most difficult and complex searches ever carried out in British Columbia. The search for a missing Cessna 310 is hampered by all sorts of factors: mountainous terrain, bad weather, no emergency transmitter signal, search aircraft unserviceabilities, SAR techs being arrested, interference from relatives of the missing passengers, psychics and the difficult task of trying to piece together all the information available to locate the missing aircraft. The search is further complicated by the searchmaster's own personal problems, which affect how he deals with his search crews, the members of his deployed headquarters team, the relatives and the search itself. What does this search mean to him on the eve of his retirement and how committed is he to finding the missing aircraft?
Adam Hunt flew searches as a Canadian Forces helicopter pilot with 408 and 417 Squadrons as well as Base Flight Cold Lake in the 1980s and 1990s. He qualified as a military searchmaster in 1991.
