Thought you guys might be interested in this.... I'm not going to go into explaining what mechanical turk is, but you can read about it on their site...

Greetings from Amazon Mechanical Turk

On Monday, September 3, 2007, Steve Fossett <Wikipedia Article>, 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 <MTurk Link>to participate in the search effort.

I'm betting they find his plane within 100 miles of the Flying M.

The mechanical turk left out the word "solo" from it's description of Mr. Fossett's round the world flight. He was obviously not the first one to do it without refueling.
