Wreckage from a plane belonging to Steve Fossett is seen on Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2008 in a handout photo released by the Mono County Sheriff's Search & Rescue. Searchers found the wreckage of Fossett's plane in California's rugged Sierra Nevada just over a year after the millionaire adventurer vanished on a solo flight, and the craft appears to have hit the mountainside head-on, authorities said Thursday. Crews conducting an aerial search late Wednesday spotted what turned out to be the wreckage in the Inyo National Forest near the town of Mammoth Lakes.
