    ALGIERS (Reuters) - Authorities have lost contact with an Air Algerie flight en route from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso to Algiers with 110 passengers on board, Algeria's APS state news agency and a Spanish airline company said on Thursday.

    APS said authorities lost contact with flight AH 5017 an hour after it took off from Burkina Faso, although other officials gave other timings, adding to confusion about the fate of the flight and where it might be.

    Spanish private airline company Swiftair confirmed it had no contact with its MD-83 aircraft operated by Air Algerie, which it said was carrying 110 passengers and six crew.

    The company said in a notice posted on its website that the aircraft took off from Burkina Faso at 0117 GMT (2117 ET) and was supposed to land in Algiers at 0510 GMT but never reached its destination.

    An Algerian aviation official said the last contact Algerian authorities had with a missing Air Algerie aircraft carrying 116 people from Burkina Faso to Algiers was at 0155 GMT when it was flying over Gao, Mali.

    Obama and McCain were very smart in giving the "freedom Fighters" Weapons. What could go wrong?

    Bad weather, old plane and probably poor maintenance don't add up to a successful flight.:pilot:

    It has NOTHING to do with that.

    It has EVERYTHING to do with Obama simply being a laughing-stock among those who would do us harm.
    To put it bluntly, Obama is a pussy and everyone knows it.

    The US will likely be attacked again and it will show that all the police state tactics were not designed to stop terrorists but to insure a compliant populace.

    Just take a look at the white flag event on the Brooklyn Bridge.
    If a couple of jokers can do this in light of the fact that NYC is a KNOWN target,
    the idea that we can stop a terrorist attack on infrastructure is complete horseshit.

    I doubt this is terribly Unusual Burkina Faso is one often worlds poorest nation Most "runways' are dirt roads. The MD-80 IS a goodplane but is
    being operated by a 3rd worldCarrier who knows what kind of condition it is ln.
