Fact 1

When John F. Kennedy Jr.'s plane was first reported missing, the government sent sailors and pilots, aviation experts and even two hydrographic survey ships. Two weeks later, federal costs are still being calculated. Estimates surpass $500,000 - not including Air Force and Navy involvement - but much of that would have been spent anyway.


Fact 2

Although the federal government's role was extensive, it didn't come at the Kennedy family's request - with one exception. ``The only request the family made was for the burial-at-sea,'' said a family spokesman. The Navy complied.


Fact 3

President Clinton has taken responsibility for authorizing the extraordinary effort to recover the private plane. He based it on the Kennedy family's role ``in our national lives, and because of the enormous losses that they have sustained in our lifetimes.''


Fact 4

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will never have estimates for the Kennedy crash because they don't break down costs on a case-by-case basis, spokesmen said.


With the Kennedy name and the more facts collected the less conspiracy theories that will be generated in the future.
