Help find missing pilot Steve Fossett

9 September, 2007

I received the following email from Amazon/Mechanical Turk earlier today. Thanks to a generous friend of Steve Fossett’s, recent satellite photos have been taken of the area where his plane may have disappeared. The public is being asked to examine these photos to try to identify anything helpful. It takes just a few seconds to scan each picture. There is a small registration form to fill out before you begin examining photos. Won’t you help?

Greetings from Amazon Mechanical Turk


On Monday, September 3, 2007, Steve Fossett, the first person to fly a plane around the world without refueling and the first person to fly around the world in a balloon went missing in Nevada. An airplane he was flying failed to return. No one has any idea where he is.

Through the generous efforts of individuals at several organizations, detailed satellite imagery has been made available for his last known whereabouts.

HITs have been created to ask volunteers to help review these images and flag potential areas of interest which will be instrumental in the search and rescue efforts.

If you are interested in helping, please click here to participate in the search effort.

This is a race against time and any help you can provide will make a huge difference.

Friends and family of Steve Fossett would like to thank you for helping them with this cause.
