    Has anybody heard any recent news on the SAR mission for Steve Fossett ?

    *****************************************************************
    I briefly heard him one night on the air-air frequency (123.45) over the North Atlantic as he was flying in an open cockpit aircraft...he sounded WET and COLD as they were approaching the coast of Ireland after their trans-Atlantic flight from somewhere in Canada. I believe this particular re-creation flight he was attempting was sponsored by National Geographic or the History Channel.

    May God be with him !!

    It was a Citabria, equipped with an ELT, and he wore some sort of personal locator GPS wrist watch. That there’s been so sign of him this long and nothing has been heard from any of his electronic gizmos gives me to believe that he’s right now playing bridge with John Walton.
