September 3, 2007, Super Decathlon N240R near Yerington, NV (FOUND 10/1/08 near MAMMOTH LAKES, CA) - LOSTFLIGHTS

A piece of wreckage from a plane with the tail number N24OR which belonged 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. (AP Photo/Mono County Sheriff's Search & Rescue)
