    Me neither. I've fitted car trackers in the past and it's not policy to even let the owner know where they are, let alone immobilise them.

    I'm sure the 'authorities' know exactly where either a) it is or b) it went down.

    F**k, I fly every week and of all the risks I considered when I accepted the job, getting lost wasn't one of them
    Money talks; unfortunately mine just says "goodbye"

    That'll teach you not to buy a big white phone with red and blue graphics.

    Just because it sounds like its ringing at the callers end doesnt necessarily mean that it is.

    The reason they gave for it being possible to shut down the tracking devices via circuit breakers is in case the device malfunctions and catches fire which is a bit more of a problem at 35000ft than it is in a car.

    They also shut them down when there are many aircraft stacking up waiting for their turn to land.......apparently.

    Flying around that region with the transponder turned off would have made it very vulnerable to attack as it would essentially be an unidentified aircraft and it wouldn't be the first time an airliner has been shot down for invading a counties airspace, if it has been shot down the country that did it wouldn't be shouting it from the rooftops.

    There are a lot of fake web sites/links popping up as the scammers attempt to profit from the interest that this news story is attracting so be careful out there:

    The thing is though - shot down/crashed - there would be wreckage?

    Yes and I hope they find the plane or the wreckage soon for the sake of the families, with the best will in the world they must be clinging to the hope that it has just been hijacked/stolen.
