Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
This site, and the effort to organize an Internet based SAR
organization for the purpose of analyzing aerial imagery, grew out
of the Internet search effort for aviator Steve Fossett who
disappeared on September 3, 2007, in southern Nevada. The desire
was to take everything that was learned from the online Fossett
search effort and build a truly efficient set of tools and
processes that could become a cost effective and highly productive
aid to the efforts of find missing aircraft.
