Steve Fossett Search Map

September 11, 2007 at 9:26 AM | by | ()

As the search for millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett enters week two out in Nevada it looks like you (a.k.a TIME's person of the year, a.k.a generator of content) are being asked to help -- from your computer that is. Google Earth released new, up-to-date images of Nevada maps, enabling users to search from their homes and notify rescuers in Nevada of any potential leads. Google says the plane Mr Fossett was flying would appear as an object about "21 pixels long and 30 pixels in wingspan".

Thus we have embedded a new map above, with the projected Fossett search area for you to zoom in, zoom out and zoom around on. At least six old crash sites have been discovered since Fossett went missing on September 3. He set off in a two-seat Bellanca Citabria Super Decathlon from the Flying M Ranch for what was to be a three-hour trip.

It is

an interesting idea with the map and taking help from people and their computers.
A tragedy that Steve Fossett disappeared though.
