Hero or hoax? Public doubted pilot's story of survival

Oct 17, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Air Force Lt. David Steeves was declared dead after he went missing on a training flight. He reappeared 54 days later in the Sierra, but suspicions arose when his plane couldn't be found. Two decades later, a discovery proved his word.

On May 9, 1957, Air Force Lt. David Steeves, piloting a T-33 training jet, took off from Hamilton Air Force Base, near San Francisco, on a flight to Arizona. Then, like a character in the television show the "Twilight Zone," he disappeared.
