Question of the Week: The Search for Steve Fossett


This Week’s Question |Previous Week’s Answers


Last week, we reported on the NTSB’srecommendation 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.

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?
