    How terrible - I hope they find the missing crew member soon.

    Question though - whats the difference between bailing out and ditching?

    Bailout - jump with a parachute.

    Ditch - land the aircraft in the water and then egress.

    Over a day later and still no word on the fourth crew member. This does not appear to likely have a good outcome, but keep the prayers going until we get a final word.
