Steve Fossett Ventures Into Military Airspace - Shot Down & Covered Up?

The circumstances surrounding Steve Fossett’s disappearance are strange. He was flying near some of the most notorious military airspace around: The Nellis Range, Area 51, etc etc.

Could it be that the adventurous Fossett purposefully ventured into some military controlled airspace and was intercepted, perhaps shot down?

Or Fossett could have inadvertently flow into military controlled airspace and been intercepted or shot down.

In either case the forces which took his aircraft down might not have known that he was a V.I.P. until the news stories broke.

It seems odd to me as a pilot that Fossett would not file a flight plan on this particular day. Maybe he didn’t want anyone to know he was adventuring into dangerous airspace. Or he simply could have felt that with the ideal flying weather that the risk was very minimal. The perfect flying weather adds to the mystery of this vanishing veteran pilot.

The most mysterious part of his disappearance is the absences of the ELT (emergency locator transmitter) emergency beacon. This mandatory piece of equipment was on Fossett’s plane and is designed to signal an alarm when a crash is detected. If the device is not working it will alert you with a tone and Fossett would have checked this during his preflight.

The lack of the ELT beacon suggests he was intercepted and landed at some top secret military base. Perhaps he saw too much.

The search has thrown up three previously undiscovered aircraft wrecks. The search area therefore is quite remote and likely to be a restricted area.

Very interesting. Could you post a link to the article which talks about the three previously undiscovered aircraft wrecks?

It would be helpful if anyone could find an article which talks in detail about where they are searching, and where these three previously undiscovered aircraft wrecks were located.\

Please post any updates you have.

I would like to post a link to the original breaking news article here on ATS.

Here's a couple of articles I found that mention the other aircraft crashes they found.

Search for Fossett

Netindia123.com

False leads in Fossett search

They really don't say much about the other wreckages that they have found.

I found this image of the Fossett search area at this link and article...

Snippet:
There's a little more info on the disappearance of Steve Fossett. It's been reported that he was scouting out dry lake beds for a potential land speed record when he disappeared. He left the Flying M Ranch near Yerington NV in a Citabria Super Decathlon stunt plane. The current search by the civil air patrol is covering this area.
He has an emergency locator beacon on the plane that should have gone off had he crashed. He also apparently has another beacon on his watch.

cool thread allseeing. To be honest, I think he's dead, he probably lost power and crashed, killed on impact. At least that's my opinion. it's sad that We lost Jonh denver the same way. was he shot down? perhaps he was, but it would look as if he crashed. his powerplane could have been wired. anything is possible here.

If indeed he was shot or forced down over restricted air space what would you expect?Thats what 'restricted'means.I wonder if his lack of a flight plan means he intentionally set out for this purpose?

It is a possibility.

Also Fossett may have had the machismo and balls to think that he could get away with more than the average guy, with regards to flying into military airspace.

When flying into the no fly zone near nellis/area 51, they will immediately contact you and tell you to turn around. They won't just come out shooting, but if you don't turn around immediately, they definately won't hesitate to take down a plane. So IF he was shot down, it was because he didn't turn around when asked to.

Or he was one of the NWO people being cleaned up after B52/nuke 9/11 part 2 was uncovered.

An Airforce Captain was found dead in a car in the Oregon Cascades, last heard from on Aug 30

A Weapon Specialist from Fort Bliss ran into the desert and died of a single gun shot wound to the head. Aug 30

Inre Steve Fosset I would put forward the following:

That he was scouting salt pans suitable for a land speed record.

This implies low flying.

He may have succumbed to disorientation due to prolonged flight over a featureless surface. In these conditions it is possible to lose an idea of altitude and hit the surface, it is known to happen over water and inside clouds.

Some salt pans are quite soft/marshy at times.

Wreckage could sink or be quite thinly scattered and hard to spot.

As somebody with a keen interest in aviation and some flying experience I would suggest this as the most likely cause of Steve Fossets demise, however who knows? Perhaps the most remote areas connected to these 'secret' bases are protected by automated defenses, it would make sense...

FoxNews - Search for Missing Aviator Steve Fossett Scaled Back

Snippet:
The Civil Air Patrol, which had 20 planes and 60 searchers aloft over the weekend, suspended further flights and left two planes and a small team on standby at the airport here.

"We don't like to do that. It's against our nature to walk away from a search," Maj. Cynthia Ryan of the Nevada CAP said. "But at some point you have diminishing returns."

As time goes on, the odds that Steve Fossett vanished under suspicious circumstances go up.

Shot down by military?
Captured by military for knowing something?
Taken by UFOS?
Hiding for his own reasons?

What do you think?

If you fly into restricted airspace you are told to turn around. If you CONTINUE to fly into restricted airspace you are intercepted and escorted out. You are NOT shot down, unless you make a threatening move towards the planes escorting you, or the base itself. They do not just shoot planes down. That's the very LAST thing they would do, and I can't see an experienced aviator like Steve Fosset doing anything dumb enough to be construed as a hostile act.

Why would he have to file a flight plan? It was perfect VFR weather as I understand. If he was searching out dry lake beds, how would he file it? He was taking off from point A, returning to point A, and in between checking out possible locations for racing. He wouldn't even know how much time he was going to spend over each site.

The absence of an ELT signal is not as mysterious as one would think. What type of ELT was it? Did it have a remote switch on the instrument panel? How old were the batteries? When was the last time the G switch tested. Was the ELT left in the off position?
I work on GA aircraft and have found battery packs with corrosion, out of date batteries, swithes in the wrong position, remote switches not even connected to the ELT, G switches rusted in place. I even found one with no batteries in it. If an ELT is not working, it will not warn you. It will not do anything. Some locations for ELT placement are difficult to access, making a preflight test almost impossible.

Another question that should be asked is why isn't the search area a big circle instead of a rectangle. Figure 4 hours of flight time at cruise speed, which for that plane is about 150 mph, so he could have gone about 600 miles in any direction. Cut that in half to 300 miles for a out and back trip. I do realize I am not taking into account the winds aloft or payload.

Also, why would he need to search for a lakebed to race a car in. Bonneville salt flats and Dry Rock lake are perfectly suited for this sort of thing. No need to search out a new one.
