Last week, we reported on the NTSB's
recommendation to the FAA that all airplanes be equipped with 406MHz
emergency locator transmitters, preferably by February of 2009, and
asked our readers what they think of a possible FAA-mandated upgrade.
Over half of those who responded said yes to such a measure,
with the caveat that there should be a reasonable time period for
people to make the transition.

THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
The search for Steve
Fossett has been on everyone's mind this week. We realize this
will stir a lot of reactions (and maybe some emotions), but based on
the e-mails we've seen, we're curious what you think of the search.
In your opinion, how has it been handled?
