The Internet is an amazing place.
I’ve been spending the last couple of hours off and on using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk to try to locate Steve Fossett‘s plane. He went missing last week and they have very up to date satellite photos of the area they think he might be in. For each picture you’re just looking for anything that could be a plane or, hopefully not, parts of one. The resolution is about a football field per image, so there’s a good chance that if something’s there it’ll show up.
If you have an account, or even if you don’t, you should give it a shot. Who knows, you might help locate him.
