I know I blogged it here when Steve Fossett made his successful solo non-stop around-the-world flight. It was one of aviation's finest hours and I celebrated with a joy at Steve and his team's success that is now an exact opposite reflection of the concern I feel as the hours pass. I'm still hoping for the best. The Decathlon is a versatile and sturdy airplane and Steve is a great pilot. However, I know the reality of the country he was flying over. This was supposed to be a short and routine flight, but obviously something went wrong. I pray that Steve is found soon and returns safely to his friends and family.
