So apparently you're the only person posting here. What the P-8 was actually doing is not the point, despite you saying it twice. Someone other than you asked about the P-8 being able to track the aircraft since it was in the area, and was probably the 737 that was noted in the radio communications. Whether it was on a ferry flight or not doesn't change the answer, which was given to another poster.

Less if they want to than if they were in the right position, and they probably couldn't for long depending on how fast it's going. They would be able to get some shots of it, but not continuously track it.


Ah, that makes sense, thanks for the info Zaph ( apologies for the late reply )

Yeah I listened to all that, and it's pretty cool stuff. There's also some very interesting comments on that article by people in the ATC world that sheds some light on things too.

So the thing is Southbound from wherever squawking 0027, then flips a fairly tight U-turn and heads back North while turning off a functioning transponder and then showing little to no primary radar return on the way out, implying all aspect LO, be it by design, or electronic means..So where did they go? Did they go North into Canada, or take the arc over Alaska and the Aleutians heading back to wherever?? Or neither, landing somewhere in CONUS? Hmmm..

could be ours. made an oops.


a person trying to evade a tracker will often lay a false trail to throw them off.

it's possible it's one of ours. did the u turn to lay a false track. so people will search over there meanwhile he's going that'a'way.

what? nobodies ever watched those 80s ninja movies where the ninja throws off the guard by tossing a rock in the opposite direction who then goes off to investigate the noise?

I’d have to think that the Air Force or Navy would deconflict with the FAA on some level if the test flight entered controlled air space.

It wouldn't be the first time it's happened, and probably won't be the last.

Im thinking just a test flight of something no one wanted to acknowledge was in the air.
Most scientific bodies if under a NDC would say squat of what they are testing.Anyone done a theoretical flight pattern when she was lost sight of?
