Incredible how in the most advanced nation in the world an airplane can take off for a sightseeing flight and dissapear off the face of the Earth......
Hey, it happened to Gilligan, the Skipper, Maryanne, Ginger and the Howells, so it can happen to anybody!

I can also say I was flying a c-172 20 dme from the ANC airport and I could hear no one and no one could hear me. Had I gone down in one of the crevasses on the glacier I was flying over no one would have found me until the end of the next ice age. You often hear of a hiker that finds a long lost plane that's twisted and broken in the hills and trees.
Yep, the crash site could be as small as an impact crater no bigger than the wingspan of a Decathalon. All the metal crumples, the fabric folds, etc. It's a tiny blotch on a huge landscape.

If Steve Fossett crashed in a gully and the wreckage rolled underneath terrain/brush, you'd have to trip over it to find it.
Well, Steve, I hope you went out with a smile on your face.
