Sadly so.  He wasn't required to file a flight plan since he was going to be 
using visual.  However, one should know the territory and the trecherous 
winds they bring in that part of Nevada.  The winds in the desert here can 
be unbelieveably nasty.  From what I've read, in the attempt to locate Mr. 
Fossett, they've found crashes that might date back to the 1960's and that 
nobody has found until then.  A flight plan in this case could make all of 
the difference.
