There have been a frequent number of instances of 'unexplained intrument' failure of late.
The only other observation might be some clandistine sabortage by Lockhead / Boeing as they are seriously losing their dominance in the large aircraft sales. Its a bit of a stretch, but consider that Boeing works with Nasa, provides components to the ISS along with other military applications, perhaps the corpporate $$$ have won out again. Nothing like a series of fatal accidents to your main rival to scare potential customers back your way.

How is it possible that a plane can disappear nowadays with satellites radar.
Im sure a submarine would have picked up any large explosions in the sea.
A plane that size just does not disappear think about all the people that would have phones on them no one phoned home strange sounds like Bermuda triangle stuf.

That was my first question as well. It does not look like they did but Bermuda is not the only triangle of phenomenon ... this could be another zone similar.

ABC is reporting that that the Airbus 330 broke up in mid air and survivors have been found on an uncharted Island, however the Island disappeared before ships could arrive in the area
What does this mean exactly? How could a large ultra modern aircraft with numerous safety backups suddenly drop from the air like that? doesn't make sense.

Here's a short extract on the recent report
They are not yet saying the plane has crashed but that the ultra modern & extreemly safe Airbus 330 suddenly 'disappeared' from radar screens due to a electrical "short circuit"... very strange indeed: Air France said that the aircraft had sent a message reporting an electrical "short circuit" after strong turbulence.
The company said the plane had probably been struck by lightning. An Airbus source described the failure as "catastrophic" suggesting a sudden and unexplained systems failure.
What does this mean exactly? How could a large ultra modern aircraft with numerous safety backups suddenly drop from the air like that? doesn't make sense. The plane was designed to withstand a lightning strikes as well -infact Airbus A330 has sophisticated Lightening Strike protection - so even if a lightening strike hit an engine the plane has fail safe systems to compensate for this ..
So what else could have happened... well an electrical short circuits can be caused by an EMF pulse. Many near misses with Ufos have reported strong electromegnetic interference, similar to an EMF pulse which disables all electrical equipment. .. could this have happened in this circumstance?
