Caption: "Sonar equipment has been brought into the now week-old search for a missing plane and its pilot believed to have gone down in Lake Altus. A strut and wheel from the single-engine private aircraft of Altus attorney Stansell Whiteside was discovered last Friday, but the rest of the wreckage has eluded divers and is believed to be buried in the lake bottom silt. Here a specialist team from a Louisiana salvage firm adjusts sonar equipment before joining the search Tuesday."
