Any idea why they do not post the details for airplane incidents?

Here is a RSOE EDIS map hisz.rsoe.hu... of the airplane incidents.
Never saw this before on this map. I think there might be a correlation between the Tremblings-Rumblings, Earthquakes, Magnetic Fields Shifting, who knows even HARRP. Either way, something is coming. There is some sort of a pattern forming - even the locations of the incidents. What do you see when you first look at the map? And the incidents only seemed to occur in the US.
Our Planetary Mother is speaking.

Yeah, this whole thing has had me puzzled as well. I honestly think something strange is happening. I don't believe its the moon though. It has to be something closer to the earths surface to do this. Thats my thoughts anyway.
All of you who have compasses, please note your readings here if you would. Mine was off by 46 degrees. My friends was off by 37 degrees.
Magnetic Fields caused by electrical currents traveling through the airframe
Another problem you might encounter is external magnetic fields caused by using the aircraft’s structure for the current return path (ground) back to the battery. Your aircraft becomes a solenoid and acts as a bar magnet. Such currents, if strong enough, can magnetize the aircraft structure. Modern Light-weight starters in 12 volt aircraft draw very high current loads. Be sure that you have a adequate (robust) grounding path back to the starter.
For example, when you turn on the landing light, the current travels through the aircraft structure on its way back to the battery. Current flow radiates a magnetic field that may influence the compass. This type of problem is diagnosed by turning on electrical appliances and observing how the compass reacts. To fix this problem you need to move the compass or move the electrical path away from the compass.
It is interesting to note that there are automotive compasses that automatically compensate for localized distortions in the magnetic field. The “heart” of this system is a compass-on-a-chip that you can now purchase as a compass kit. One wonders if the 50 year old aircraft compass is due for an upgrade.
The degausser draws approximately six amperes on steel and seven amperes in air.

Are you guys for real??? north is north as for determinability of just were this anomaly starts and ends... well do you actually asume some states have repositioned themselves??? do you think you set your compass down where the arrow points is where it should be? Maybe you should spin it till its on the N then you can begin to understand how to use your new compass... Maybe...
What's going on in Florida? Travelers have struggled with the complexity of navigating by compass for centuries, and modern American travelers are no exception. Runways are designated according to the points on a compass, and the drifting magnetic north means that they, periodically, need to be renamed. "Recently, the drift has caused our runways' orientations to be closer to the next increment on the magnetic compass," Tampa International Airport spokeswoman Brenda Geoghagan told LiveScience in an e-mail.
"The magnetic field tends to align itself with the axis of rotation, but it's not perfect," said Love. "It tends to wander around."
Don't trust your compass. Magnetic north isn't where it used to be.
