Air France Jet Missing.

It's early days yet for news but according to Sky News there are 216 passengers and 12 crew on board the Airbus. A Paris airport official is quoted as saying "The plane disappeared from radar several hours ago. It could be a transponder problem but this kind of fault is very rare and the plane did not land when expected."

Now excuse me, is it common practice that when a plane falls off radar you just wait to see if it still arrives on time?  I for one would be getting other aircraft and ships on the area to look for it!!

PARIS, June 1 (Reuters) - An Air France plane that went missing over the Atlantic Ocean could have been struck by lightning, a spokesman for the carrier said.
"The plane might have been struck by lightning. It's a possibility," said Francois Brousse, head of communications at Air France.

Earlier, Air France said the plane had reported an electrical fault via an automatic message that was sent after it flew through a stormy area with very strong turbulence.
