Searching for Steve Fossett

Posted September 13, 2007 8:45 a.m. EDT

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.
