Searching for Steve Fossett
Posted September 13, 2007
Aviation pioneer Steve Fossett has been missing for more than a week. He took off from Nevada, but never returned.
You can help search for the missing aviator here. This is a link to a KML file of fresh satellite pictures of the search area. Use Google Earth and try to spot the wreckage.
The idea: Millions of people around the world could search for him with high-resolution satellite images. It's a neat concept. Is this the first time a search has been opened to the public on Google Earth. I can't remember any others.
