New details in Fossett crash

<div class="meta image-caption"><div class="origin-logo origin-image kabc"><span>KABC</span></div><span class="caption-text">Wreckage from a plane belonging to Steve Fossett is seen Wednesday, Oct. 1, 2008 in a handout photo released by the Mono County Sheriff&#39;s Search & Rescue. Searchers found the wreckage of Fossett&#39;s plane in California&#39;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.
