So after two or three days if the passengers of the plane still have ringing phones it means that they are charging the phones?
Because by then the phones should be dead or at least one.
Kidnapping people in a plane takes a skill called attention to detail, so forgetting to discard or "taking care" of the cell phone problem sounds kind of off for a kidnapping.
I guess it depends on the carrier of the phone? If you have a pay card or not?
That is the reasoning I heard on the radio this morning from a technology expert consultant. On the radio station 98.5 FM in quebec owned by Cogeco nouvelles.
what if lightning hit it it has taken out planes before the super lightning i am talking about that they discovered a few years agoedit on 11-3-2014 by 999zxcv because: (no reason given)
Since the plane is not grounded there would be little but localized damage where the lightning hits. I have seen the evidence of lightening strikes on wings, noses and tails and there is normally just a small spot of melted aluminum. Super lightening eh?
Although passengers and crew may see a flash and hear a loud noise if lightning strikes their plane, nothing serious should happen because of the careful lightning protection engineered into the aircraft and its sensitive components. Initially, the lightning will attach to an extremity such as the nose or wing tip. The airplane then flies through the lightning flash, which reattaches itself to the fuselage at other locations while the airplane is in the electric "circuit" between the cloud regions of opposite polarity. The current will travel through the conductive exterior skin and structures of the aircraft and exit off some other extremity, such as the tail. Pilots occasionally report temporary flickering of lights or short-lived interference with instruments.
Also if the NSA can track phone calls and text messages there are over 200 people on that flight that can be tracked. Usually someone on every flight will try and sneak in a text or something. Someone knows something and isn't talking. They aren't talking because its scary......
