    If a random jumbo jet comes near our airspace and isn't registered and replying to ATC, my guess is we blow it out of the sky very quickly. Not too worried.

    If these planes were owned by the US government, would we ever know?

    I agree. But that does not mean these things could be used to cause a lot of destruction...

    Too much coincidence. It wouldn't surprise me if the skies were light with passengers this 9-11. Not worried so much with hijackers anymore. That dog has been let out of the pen. But missing airliners? My guess is the US Air Force will get some target practice over our southern border next week.

    Makes you wonder how easy is it to get elevan trained crews to fly those planes to a secret airstip or airstrips that are big enough for the planes. Also, these guys maybe pretty smart in that they may of disabled all telementry data leaving the planes. As we learned earlier this year from the Malaysian event the jet engines were sending data bact to the manufactors. Is it possible that these jets were towed away somewhere and chopped for thier parts?

    They could have been repossessed. Most airlines do not own their aircraft--they lease them. No payment, no airplane.

    The article in the OP seems to be about planes that were on the ground at the airport in Tripoli. Libyan airlines had primarily airbus 320 and 330 airplanes. I believe only the 330 would have the range to cross the Atlantic. The concern is those planes doing suicide bombing runs in the ME, primarily against a Saudi oilfield or refinery, which would cause substantial damage.

    Which would be more terroristically practical than trying to hit a domestic US target 7k plus miles away. Or as bastogne said, thank god for the Atlantic.

    If this weren't Libyan owned/leased planes, I'd be inclined to suspect fraud first. Still don't rule it out as I also won't give in to the reflexive assumption of something nefarious either.
