I have spent the last 7 hours of my life looking for the missing coworker on FSX with no luck.  Can someone please give me a hint or somthing?

I got tired of looking for him and took the hottie in the plane with me back to my place.

Yeah, i also got mad the first time.
I flew through all valleys and found nothing.
I found a hint, there are some rocks near the crash site where he is, which differs from normal scenery.
But the first time i didn`t recognized him, because i flew to high.

I can give you a more detailed hint, but it spoils a bit.
















Search in these valleys.

I had no issue finding him or landing on the small area to pick him up. However i crashed into an invisable tree or something during take off which made me quite upset since the mission took 45mins!

When we shipped the Civil Air Patrol SAR mission in FSX we received a lot of feedback that people like the SAR concept but didn't like being led to the crash site and wanted the location of the site to be randomized.

Ask and ye shall receive! In this mission there are 6 crash sites randomly determined during the mission. Where one user finds the crash site may not be where you will find it. They are all in the general area near Stehekin and are in areas that have snow (using default scenery). If you apply good search pattern techniques the aircraft will be easier to find.

If nothing else, this mission should illustrate just how difficult it is to find a crashed aircraft in the wilderness!

Using Michael Sanders locations I created a map on Google maps for the locations of the missing coworker.  I used it myself and found him at the fourth place I checked.  Good luck!

i know that the missing  guy is at location 2 on the map, because the woman said that she wanted more coffee, but i cant find him anywhere & im starting to get really frustrated :hrmm: ! one reason is that i've never been really good with longitude & lattitude & positions & all of that stuff. anyway, could i hav some screenshots so i know what the area surrounding the guy looks like?? thanks a bunch!!

Thanks to those who posted the maps and positions which makes this a lot easier.

You also need to search the valley west of Lucerne, btw.

To find the 'funny looking rock' set parking brake, start engine, switch on pitot heat, etc. and taxi to the nearest point on the runway. Turn left and take off heading for Stehekin State.

Head for Stehekin from Lake Chelan at 4000 feet, overfly the strip and take the first valley on the right ignoring the short cleft valley in the mountain ahead, take the second left valley to the tree/snow line where there are two groups of rocks.

Seven rocks in the left hand group and six smaller rocks in the right hand group.

The Baron, smoke from a fire, and flares should show. If not, you'll need to re-load and start over.

"He should be nearby."

Yep! He just fired the flares! (Sounds like a Lancastrian lassie.)

Adding the rocks to the positions shown on the map that makes for SEVEN crash sites.

Has anyone found all seven, or has anyone found more?

(Limited by the dialogue scripts in the sound files, IMO)

Thanks for the information.  Below is a link to a map with all 7 locations.

I had trouble getting the "Terrain" mode to stick, so you may need to turn it on to see the terrain.

Thank you Dave.

I turned on terrain and it came out crystal clear.

Q. Do you know if FSX is compatible with Windows 8?
