An airplane packed with people heading across the ocean suddenly disappears into thin air and the plane can't be found. Sound familiar? The story that emerged yesterday concerning Air France Flight 447 seemed as if it were ripped from the pages of ABC's hit drama LOST.
CNN is still reporting this morning that the plane hasn't been found. The accident is being blamed on extreme turbulence caused by thunderstorms which develop in the region around the equator known as the Intertropical Convergence Zone.
Sometimes reality mirrors fiction. Let's just hope another part of the story ends up mimicking the show and that some passengers managed to survive. The chances of that, unfortunately, are even less than vanishing in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on an Airbus jet.
