Remembering an Explorer

Fossett Remembered for Daredevil Spirit, AP

Steve Fossett: The Times obituary, Times Online

"Steve Fossett made a fortune as a commodities broker in Chicago before embarking on a second career as an adventurer and record setter. He vanished while piloting an aircraft over the Nevada desert. He took off from Yerington, Nevada, on September 3, 2007, on what should have been a three-hour flight. But despite a huge search neither he nor his aircraft was seen again."
