On August 13, 1993, while returning from a mission in the Russian Far East town of Lavrentiya, a charter missionary plane with seven on board lost one engine at 7,000 feet and the other, 9 minutes later, at 3,500 feet. The plane fell 3,500 feet in 3 1/2 minutes and plowed into the Bering Sea at 90 MPH.

Sledge Island off the coast of AlaskaIt took the seven on board this flight about one minute to get out of the aircraft; one minute later the plane sank.

On board were: Dave and Barb Anderson from Phoenix, Arizona, keyboardist Cary Dietsche from Amery, Wisconsin, singer/songwriter Don Wharton from Nashville, Tennessee, soundman/roadie Brian Brasher from St. Louis, Missouri, passenger Pam Swedberg from Kenai, Alaska, and pilot Dave Cochran from Soldotna, Alaska.

The group found themselves in 3'-5' swells, 2 1/2 miles west of Sledge Island; 22 1/2 miles west of Nome, Alaska; about 100 miles south of the Arctic Circle.

The water temperature was about 36F degrees. (Life expectancy is between 5 and 15 minutes in 36-degree water).

The Other Song BookThe Other Song Book
The Other Songbook is NOT out of print!  The "Musicians Edition or Large Print Edition" is very much in print even though the smaller version is out of print.  Back in the 1970's people would come up to us after concerts and after conference ... I decided that it was time to compile a songbook.
