Presumed dead[edit]

October 16, 1972 or December 29, 1972? Both dates are in the article. MikelZap (talk) 05:35, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Middle name[edit]

I realize that we're going by what the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress says, which lists him as "Nicholas Joseph" Begich. However, Who's Who in Alaskan Politics lists him as "Nicholas John" Begich. Probably more convincing to me is that the will filed by his son with the Alaska Court System refers to "Nicholas John" Begich, also. Based upon past experience in these matters, I'm sure that the paid maintainers of the Biographical Directory are waiting for us volunteer editors to do the research and proper citing before they correct this, rather than doing the research themselves.RadioKAOS (talk) 21:05, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

terminating his tenure as U.S. Rep. -- compare to Hale Boggs[edit]

Hale Boggs' entry here on Wikipedia says he was still considered a member of the House until a resolution declared his seat vacant on Jan. 3, 1973, after both he and Begich had been re-elected despite their disappearance. In comparison to that, how was Begich's seat handled? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.63.16.20 (talk) 16:22, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Related to his disappearance/death[edit]

Rick Anderson, In 1972, Two U.S Representatives Boarded a Plane and Disappeared. What Happened?, Seattle Weekly, November 3, 2015. Definitely worth mining, especially for the material about his widow's subsequent marriage to Jerry Max Pasley. - Jmabel | Talk 06:21, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

I've responded in Talk:Hale Boggs. - Location (talk) 04:17, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

The Alex Jones Show as source[edit]

Alright, while citing the claims made by Nick Begich Jr. regarding his father's presumed death with the Alex Jones Show, I suppose that the Alex Jones Show is a valid source for whether or not a conspiracy theory exists (as Alex Jones and company have peddled in precisely that for years), but is that really notable? Would we really add an entry to the page on, say, Frogs about how Alex Jones thinks they're gonna turn gay? RexSueciae (talk) 03:33, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

The Boggs-Begich crash is certainly popular enough in non-mainstream circles, but there really isn't that much discussion about the conspiracy theory in mainstream sources. If Begich Jr. wasn't the son, I would definitely say get rid of the Alex Jones source. Not sure why it should make a difference. I can open up an Rfc here and post it on WP:RSN and WP:FTN. -Location (talk) 04:03, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Update on search and ELT information 0640 UTC 04 October 2017[edit]

Greetings. I added a few details and citation to the information about the search. I deleted the incorrect sentence about the search prompting Congress to mandate ELTs, originally posted in 2005, and expanded the ELT information with details and citations. I kept the citation from Washington State DOT posted in 2015, as it is a good one. Some of this information is the same as I posted on the Hale_Boggs page. Kotaqua (talk) 06:51, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
