WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Rescue crews have found the wreckage of a small plane that appears to be the aircraft piloted by millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett, the National Transportation Safety Board said on Thursday.
The NTSB said the small airplane found on Wednesday "appears to be the aircraft piloted by Steve Fossett."
Fossett's small Bellanca airplane has been missing since Sept. 3, 2007, when the pilot left Nevada for a local flight. The wreckage was located about 10,000 feet (3,200 meters) up the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the vicinity of Mammoth Lakes, California. The NTSB said it has sent an investigator to the accident site.
