Fossett Flight

CHICAGO (AP) _ The wife of missing adventurer Steve Fossett says
it's time.

Through her lawyer, Peggy Fossett is asking a Chicago-area court
to declare her husband dead. Her petition says she believes the
millionaire pilot was killed in a plane crash in September.

Her lawyer says it's painful for Mrs. Fossett, but the legal
steps need to begin to resolve Fossett's vast estate.

The 63-year old adventurer disappeared September 3rd after
taking off in a single-engine plane from a Nevada airstrip.
According to his wife, he wasn't scouting out new landing surfaces
but was on a pleasure flight.

A rescue effort was officially suspended after more than a month
of fruitless searching. The National Transportation Safety Board
concluded in a preliminary report that the plane was destroyed in a
fatal accident.
