Steve Fossett, the world’s most successful Speed Sailor, is missing.
He took off on his solo flight in a single-engine Bellanca aircraft from a private airstrip 80 miles (130 kilometers) southeast of Reno, Nevada. He failed to file a flight-plan for what was supposed to be a routine three-hour jaunt. His aircraft was equipped with an electronic tracking device designed to be triggered in the event of a rough landing, but it has not been activated. Conditions were "optimal", with calm to light winds. Mr. Fossett was carrying four full tanks
, and was searching for empty lake beds suitable for a forthcoming attempt at the land speed record
You can help find Steve!
Through the generous efforts of individuals at several organizations, detailed satellite
imagery has been made available for his last known whereabouts.
