Burlington, Vermont - October 17, 2009
The U.S. Coast Guard failed to find a fuel tank that was dropped into Lake Champlain.
A Vermont Air National Guard pilot had to jettison two fuel tanks into the lake Friday after his F-16 experienced power irregularities.
The Coast Guard recovered one of the tanks near Willsboro Point, New York. The other is thought to be submerged. A very small oil sheen was spotted on the water. The Environmental Protection Agency will continue to search.
