I find it very strange that with all the different gadgets and radars etc available that a Boeing 777 plane can simply vanish and for a week nobody seems to know a thing.

Or there is a lot less radar coverage than you think.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Yes. Military radar tends to concentrate towards real threats. The Malay military do not pose much of a threat to places like India, Nam or China.

Radar? Radar is 75 yr old technology. Do you not think that the US, China & Russia have detailed satelite coverage of the entire planet?

Detailed coverage?  Yes.  Detailed real time coverage tracking flights?  No.

I was on a plane once.

Those poor people waiting for news must be aware of this now. I can't imagine how they are coping

That was my first thought. There is no way on this earth that the US, amongst others, does not have the capability to know the whereabouts of anyhting on the globe.

Very good point. It helped them find bin laden so quickly didnt it.

When outside radar range, I'd imagine the plane would need to be giving out a signal for technology like GPS etc to identify where it is. Satellite technology would also need to be tasked to specifically watch the plane in flight and even then, satellites move... I don't think it is as easy as you think to watch and track an individual object, especially if it turns off it's tracking technology; this whole event is very strange...

north korea.....thats my bet. can't be a terrorist group as they'd have been shouting from the rooftops by now. if it had crashed there would still be GPS, black box signal, wreckage etc. so that leaves some sort of state sponsered jiggery pokery, so i'll go with north korea.

I wouldn't deem an incredibly large metallic object to an individual comparable.

I wouldn't say the, say, NSA, CIA or FIS specifically track air movements, more having satellite coverage of vast swathes of areas across the globe.

All in the name of security, of course.

In a few thousand mile radius I doubt there's much difference between them.
