The Wisconsin Air National Guard says the body of the pilot of the F-16 that crashed earlier this week has been discovered.  The plane went down in the Hiawatha National Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula during a training mission.  Investigators haven’t said what went wrong and the pilot’s name hasn’t been released.  The jet was assigned to the 115th Fighter Wing based at Truax Field Air National Guard Base in Madison.  First responders and other government agencies started searching for the missing pilot in Delta County shortly after 8:00 p-m Tuesday.  A news conference will be held this morning where officials are expected to share more information.
