Body of East Troy military pilot recovered
EAST TROY The U.S. Navy has confirmed that the pilot found after his plane disappeared off the Texas coast on Wednesday is that of 30-year-old Lt. Bret Travis Miller of East Troy.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that Miller's body was recovered Friday when a floating oil rig's crew reported something in the water.
The U.S. Coast Guard suspended the search Sunday night for a second Navy pilot, 29-year-old Lt. John Joseph Houston of Houston.
The two instructors were flying the Navy T-34C Turbomentor plane on a routine training flight when it disappeared. The Coast Guard estimated that it searched 131 hours and 20,900 square miles. It said it will continue trying to locate the plane.
