    For those interested in aviation (I know there are a few pilots on here somewhere), famed aviator Steve Fossett's aircraft has been found. Mr Fossett went missing on September 3rd, 2007 after his aircraft was reported overdue during a flight from Smith Valley, NV (near Carson City) to California.

    Multiple agencies at the national, state and local levels aided in the search, including multiple state's National Guards, the Civil Air Patrol (woot), sherriff's and police departments, and, IIRC, a group of active duty Air Force Pararescuemen.

    Here's a link to the story:

    I caught an article about it in the post today. The hiker found a bunch of $100 bills. Money for mods.

    If he's still alive, I don't think he would have left $1,000 behind... at least I wouldn't have!
