I searched for audio from this incident, but no luck.  KCUB is non-towered, but there is a feed for the CTAF!  However, it's completely silent.  The approach frequency for KCUB is on the KCAE feed (pretty scratchy), and I do hear ATC vector N266DC onto the ILS into KCUB, but that's all.  A few minutes later ATC says something about an emergency to another aircraft, but there are no more transmissions to 6DC.  Very sad...
