Help Search For Steve Fossett Via New Images On Google Earth


www.livescience.com

A number of organizations have banded together to provide use of GeoEye satellite photos of Nevada territory over which Fossett flew, but failed to return to his takeoff point. GeoEye is a private Earth remote sensing satellite imagery provider.

Now, using Google Earth and a special file to access newly snapped satellite imagery of Fossett’s last whereabouts, you too can join in on the search via your computer.

The new imagery is sharp enough to spot wreckage of a small plane, unless he crashed into an area covered in foliage and the plane is obscured.

It just may turn out that a Google Earth user will be the one to spot the plane. I sure hope he's standing beside it with a camp fire, and using his survival skills to stay alive.

I just took a look at the new imagery posted to Google Earth, and it looks like they covered an area of about 35 - 40 miles wide, and about 65 - 70 miles long.




Here's an image of a plane of similar size on the Hilton Ranch.




If this is now a crumpled heap of aluminum on the side of a hill it may be hard to spot with this 1m resolution.

I have a bad feeling this will turn into another Amelia Earhart. :shk:
