    Air france A330 gone missing over atlantic

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/8076848.stm

    Though on the news they said they've made contact with the aircraft via high frequency and then said it's still missing?

    Hope they're ok

    I read this as well...

    It doesn't look good does it?

    Anyone want to place bets on what happened?

    Radio malfunction?
    Terrorist attack?
    Ran out of fuel?
    Mechanical problem?

    I thought all aircraft had gps locating beacons? Which should have reported it's last known position to the control tower.

    Anyway I hope we get some good news soon and they turn up safe and sound!

    Well it'd have run out of fuel by now so it's not looking good...

    Hi Mate, I dont know the cause of the aircraft but the following you posted is unlikely..

    Radio Malfunction - You still have ACARS to communicate to ATC and Operations, or you Squawk a specific code, which ATC can see to show you have lost all radios so thats not the cause.

    Terrorist Attack - Air France have confirmed this is not the case

    Ran out of Fuel - More than unlikely as the aircraft would have been planned to land with around about 10000lbs left and just after leaving Brazil still going to have alot of fuel left.


    Mechanical Malfunction - Could be, Most realistic Option.
