Doctor Says He Will Definitely Have Another Airplane
The doctor and his daughter who ditched their Cirrus off the
coast of Andros Island in the Bahamas Saturday are continuing their
medical mission to Haiti ... albeit on a commercial
The trip was interrupted when the SR22 they were flying
developed engine problems, which eventually resulted in a complete
loss of power. The pilot elected to deploy the airframe parachute,
and alerted the Coast Guard as to their location. They were rescued
shortly after the airplane came to rest in the water.
Now, ABC News reports that Dr. Richard McGlaughlin and his
daughter Elaine have continued on to Haiti, departing from Nassau,
Bahamas at 0830 local time Monday morning ... this time on a
commercial flight. Dr. McGlaughlin's interest in Haiti began two

McGlaughlin said he'll be doing that again "as soon as I get
another airplane." (Image provided by the USCG)
