It was certainly an 1121 Jet Commander. A loud jet that sucked fuel so fast that the fuel counter would spin like a slot machine in Vegas. So loud that Teterboro told us not to bring that jet back. 2 hours and 40 minutes is about all the flying time you had. It was a solid built jet.

Well it would be odd if it were found at the top of Lake Champlain. How about just, "has been found in Vermont's Lake Champlain"? I think all readers would deduce that it's at the bottom.

A simple google picture search disagrees with your statement.

The Jet Commander is actually a Jet, not to be confused with the Turbo Commander which is a turbo prop.

thanks. I think that airplane was an 1121 pre 1968, so was a Rockwell Jet Commander.
IAI started what, in 1970 or so? and the "Worstwind" was born, later stretched to the 1123 with 731's installed.
