Abstract
Eye-movement of Canadian Forces Rescue Specialists and trained spotters were filmed with a Mackworth eye-marker camera during visual search. Thirty-six subjects searched five 16-mm colour films of approaches to actual crash sites photographed from 500 ft. at 120 kts. in calm air. Subjects signalled any possible sightings obtained during the approach and fly-by of the sites. The 8-mm film records of eye-movements were analyzed to obtain information on eight major variables. The requirements for the use of more liberal criteria for reporting possible detections and for increased visual coverage are discussed.
