The August 2011 INFORMS OR/MS Today features a cover article by Dr. Lawrence Stone titled "Operations Research Helps Locate the Underwater Wreckage of Air France Flight AF 447".  This article, written by a master of the field, explains this latest search and illustrates the current relevance of search theory, fundamental OR developed during World War II by Bernard Koopman.  See the MORS-INFORMS Classic Operations Research Articles for other seminal OR publications.  Dr. Stone gave a search theory presentation during the Heritage Session at the 75th MORSS at Annapolis in 2007.
