A good example of why you should always file a flight plan, or at the very least let someone know what area you are going to fly to.Of course he could have wandered into Area 51.....and now he's with them:-spacecraft John M

Saw an article on Yahoo. Apparently Amazon.com has a service called "Mechanical Turk". This allows users to log in and identify objects in pictures that computers have a hard time looking for. Well, you can login and look at satellite imagery and flag questionable objects that might look like a plane etc. More info at the links below:http://www.mturk.com/mturk/welcomehttp://tech.yahoo.com/news/infoworld/20070...infoworld/91721Maybe someone could put this on the front page?

A friend of mine works for C.A.P. out of Minden-Tahoe. Learned yesterday he is involved in the search when he forwarded pictures of some of the terrain. Although I lived in the search area back in the 90's, his pics were the first I've seen from the perspective of a light aircraft. Only then did I realize the challenge of this search. It's sobering, but I hope they find something, to bring some sort of closure to those involved. I still keep hoping Steve shows up at some local casino saying "got tired of waiting for you guys". It's nice to hope for, anyway.John
