11 Libyan jetliners missing...
« on: September 02, 2014, 04:03:23 PM »
...from Tripoli after Islamist militias in Libya took control of them last month...and we're just now hearing about it?

Quote
Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.

Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.

“There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.”

The article said that there were a bunch of Airbus jetliners in the Libyan fleet. Those can't reach Western Europe or N. America?

Not without filing flight plans with European and N. American ATC.

Assuming they don't want an armed aerial welcome wagon while still over water, of course.

Hmm...OK then. But I'm sure they will use their collective imaginations to think of something...'new.'

Israel has IFF/radar and airline schedules.

 :2funny:

that airspace and the approaches to it have got to be among the most heavily scanned, patrolled and armed in the world.

there is enuf shit they can do unfortunately  :(

they can try to close shadow an airliner (probably a freighter) that it looks like one plane  (or a software glitch ;) ) at least on 3rd world civilian radar
they can ram an airliner at flight altitude  or try to bring it down without crashing itself
they can ram a non military high value target (cruiseship or tanker) on the open seas

fortunately those planes need maintenance ... and are hard to hide parked on the ground

They could also ram embassys in Africa.
