Plane Crash latest

In our top local story... family members identify the pilot who crashed his plane into chickamauga lake on monday.

A spokesperson says he is captain frank davey, who retired from the marines.

They say he was an experienced pilot with both military and civilian flight hours spanning his adult lifetime.

In a statement, davey's family says they want to express their gratitude as they come to grips with the apparent loss of a beloved husband, father and friend.

Crews continue to look for that missing plane for a third day.

Different teams within the hamilton county sheriff's office are helping out with the search.

News 12's robyn estabrook joins us live in the studio with our continuing coverage.

The forensic dive team has a lot of different technology they use to help them find the plane.

They say the conditions of the water has made it difficult.

From dry suits to hard hats, this is some of the equipment the foresnsic dive team is using to help in the search of the plane that crashed into lake chickamauga on monday.

They first have to locate what they are looking for before a diver goes into the water.

John scruggs/ training officer forensic dive team "we have a fairly large search area to cover, we are utilizing in the field right now a tow behind size scan sonar.

It basically shoots a sound image out reflects it back and interprets it as an image."

Once they decide to send a scuba diver down, they make sure they can communicate with them.

"the diver has calms where they can talk back and fourth and relay what is going on.

And on either operation the diver is tethered.

If we lose a diver in the current that we have, they would be extremely hard to find.

This with the air delivery system automatically has a tether, but we use the rope bag for the scuba."

So far the search for the plane has not been easy.

They've been able to send two divers down.

"the water conditions are not favorable to dive."

Currently visability is low, so it is hard for the divers to see what is in front of them.

"that is why we rely heavily on the imaging.

It gives us a good idea of what is there, but we just have to go down sometime and what we do, what we call brail diving.

We go down, we feel it and see what it is."

The forensic dive team will continue to use this technolgy to search for the plane, despite the choppy water.

Crews have been able to find debris, but not the entire plane.
