Resolved Question: Who thinks that Steve
Stranger things have happened - case of John Darwin and his canoe recently in the UK and that MP who pretended to drown and turned up in Australia in the 70's. But is it really very likely in the case of Steve Fossett? Or was it all just a sad misadventure?

Resolved Question: Do you think Steve
In the news today it states:
AVIATION adventurer Steve Fossett may have faked his own death with allegations he was leading a double life and cheating on his wife........
What's your point of view....? Claims are:::
SECRET MISTRESSES: Fossett cheated on his wife with TWO lovers in an amazing double life.
BAFFLING CHOICE OF PLANE: Fossett chose a light stunt aircraft which could be easily dismantled and hidden, a type he did NOT like.
NO EMERGENCY KIT: Despite a lifetime's experience he supposedly set off on the three-hour flight in just T-shirt and shorts with no parachute or his regular global positioning system watch.
TAKE-OFF PUZZLE: The only witness who says he saw Fossett fly off has never been quizzed by the authorities.
TRACKER RIDDLE: The plane was fitted with a satellite rescue beacon to pinpoint its position for rescuers but no signal was ever received. source - http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,24087891-5013865,00.html
