The Search for Dale’s Plane is a true storythat began on December 1, 2013 when Alaska bush pilot,Dellon Smith, set out to find his brother’s plane after it dropped off the radar over remote Idaho. Aided by family members from seven states and his brother’s church congregation, they encountered impossible weather conditions, impenetrably steep mountains, and the complete loss of clues. Going home for Christmas, they returned with a new perspective and resources. With bleary eyes, physical exhaustion, humility, and prayers, thousands volunteered and miracles happened. The search wasn’t just about finding the plane as many discovered a richer, more fulfilling life. Sharing their feelings and experiences, this book promises to uplift and leave you warmed by the love our Heavenly Father shows during periods of adversity and by the faith, dignity and courage exhibited by Janis, the wife of the pilot, and other family members as they waited in limbo with hope in their hearts.

Author : Fran Phillips

Frances Smith-Phillips is the mother of the pilot, Dale Smith, and the grandmother of the other four passengers?either by birth, marriage, or the strong emotional bond of this experience. She says, ?These were all my kids, all five of them!? For months she felt like she was having an out of body experience, protected from the reality of the loss of her family, carried as in the poem, Footprints. Her heart was warmed by an outpouring of letters and stories from heroes who put their lives on hold and gave their all to find her family. Fran retired from teaching public school in San Jose, California in 2001, where she raised her three sons, and moved to Anchorage, Alaska where she enjoys the pristine beauty of the outdoors. Her beloved husband, Don Phillips, passed away in 2012. She is currently serving for two years in the Family History and Church History Headquarters Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah where you can find her hostessing in the Family History Library.
