A kindly commenter named Gus left this link with a bunch of pictures and maps from last week’s Steve Fossett crash discovery.

My Google maps of the crash site proved to be fairly accurate.

What mystifies me: if the plane burned when it crashed, why didn’t it start a fire big enough for people to notice? After all it was Labor Day weekend and the ground should’ve been tinder-dry.

Bob R., who took the pictures linked above, posted a wrap-up at the Whitney Portal Message Board.
