Just saw on the news ticker that an Air France jet has gone missing over the ocean near Brazil. It is now overdue landing in Paris by hours. Really hope this is some sort of mistake and maybe they managed to force a landing somewhere out of radar coverage and radio range.
The worst aspect of this is, if something has indeed gone very wrong, and the plane is lost, this is not some mickey mouse third world airline. Thoughts aare with the crew, passengers & their families.
