Norad tracking unresponsive private jet over atlantic

Quote:
PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. – As of 11:30 a.m. EDT today, September 5th, 2014, two F-15 fighter jets under the direction of North American Aerospace Defense Command launched to investigate an unresponsive aircraft currently flying over the Atlantic Ocean.
The Socata TBM-700 light business and utility aircraft departed Rochester, NY with a flight plan filed to land in Naples, FL, however the plane’s occupants did not respond to attempts to communicate. The aircraft continues to be followed by NORAD jets.
NORAD continues to monitor the situation in close coordination with the FAA. More information will be made available as it emerges.
NORAD's mission – in close collaboration with homeland defense, security, and law enforcement partners – is to prevent air attacks against North America, safeguard the sovereign airspaces of the United States and Canada by responding to unknown, unwanted and unauthorized air activity approaching and operating within these airspaces, and provide aerospace and maritime warning for North America.
As one of NORAD's critical airspace security partners, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) provides air traffic services for NORAD to safely and effectively perform its mission and to minimize the impacts on normal air traffic operations.
NORAD is the bi-national Canadian and American command that is responsible for the air defense of North America and maritime warning. The command has three subordinate regional headquarters: the Alaskan NORAD Region at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska; the Canadian NORAD Region at Winnipeg, Manitoba; and the Continental NORAD Region at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla. The command is poised both tactically and strategically in our nation’s capital to provide a multilayered defense to detect, deter and prevent potential threats flying over the airspace of the United States and Canada.http://www.columbian.com/news/2014/s...lantic-fighter

Sheesh. Anyone hear about this?

Update: Norad saying the plane should run out of fuel in the next "several minutes", Cuban military might have to shoot the plane down because it enter a populated area.

That's not a jet, it's a tiny prop plane.

That's a real zinger.

My guess:

Plane lost pressure, occupants passed out, continued on autopilot.

In aviation, we consider that a "tiny prop plane."

Stick to serving gasoline.

Yes, that's considered a small plane.

It's literally defined as a light aircraft.

It probably will be, and it'll be blown entirely out of proportion in order to get better ratings.
