They were able to identify a spot wher their chief had been sitting for a rest. However, in the end they couldn’t find him. After coming back to their camp, they turned on car lights and fired signal flares …

失踪  [5]
 

车灯开了一晚。信号弹每半个小时发一次。可是,彭加木没有回来。

第二天,部队的飞机送来了水。队员把队长失踪的消息告诉了飞行员. 于是飞行员在方圆20公里内低空飞行, 寻找彭加木。

从飞机上能看见地上的兔子跑, 但是却看不到彭加木。

6月19日, 彭加木失踪的消息传到了北京,北京向部队下命令:”一定要找到彭加木!”

就在那一天,部队用飞机向队员运送了汽油. 部队是不可以用飞机运汽油的。可是北京的命令是, 用一切办法找到彭加木,所以部队才可以用飞机运汽油。

有了汽油以后,队员们开车向东接着找,但还是没有找到队长。

第二天,136人加入寻找, 在方圆30公里内仔细寻找,一块石头,一根草都不放过。飞机起飞12架次,低空飞行,大面积寻找。

彭加木走的时候带着两个相机,两个水壶,和一个笔记本。这次寻找进行了十天,没有发现一点线索。

在这十天里,大家已经把罗布泊人无法生存的地方找过了。

下面就应该去更东的, 可以生存的地方寻找了。
