Wreckage of Fossett's Plane Is Found Steve Fossett was the first man to circumnavigate the world in a hot-air balloon and the first to fly an airplane solo around the globe without refueling. Last September, the 63-year old millionaire took off in a light plane from Yerington, Nevada, and hasn't been seen since. On Monday, in the wilderness near Mammoth Lakes, California, a hiker found Fossett's identification papers and a thousand dollars in cash. Today, searchers discovered the wreckage of his light plane at an elevation of 10,000 feet, as Steve Chawkins reports in the Los Angeles Times .
