06 September 2007
Three days after he went missing in the Nevada desert, fears are growing for the safety of record-breaking US pilot Steve Fossett.
The 63-year-old daredevil aviator-adventurer who has cheated death a number of times, was last seen taking off from a private airfield near Yerington, Nevada, on the evening of Monday, 3 September.
Local pilots say that the plane Fosset was flying, a single-engine Citabria, may have been hit by the area''s strong and treacherous winds.
