'UH, THERE'S THREE GUYS FROM THE AIR FORCE HERE TO SEE YOU'

Unbeknownst to anybody at the brewery, something had accidentally activated the plane’s emergency locator beacon.

Speculation on how the beacon was activated centered on an unknown visitor who was overheard saying, “here, hold my beer.”

"For at least two days it had been putting out a signal to every passing pilot..."

Um...it took two days to find a plane they thought had gone down even though it was parked in a brew pub?

Since the locator beacon is in an airplane hanging inside of a very nice bar, The FAA and associated agencies will take weeks to turn the thing off. Maybe they'll just add fresh batteries?

Keeping Portland weird since 1972.
