Terrible 2 weeks for Air Travel: Algerian Airline Missing

BBC News - Algeria airliner missing on Sahara route from Burkina Faso

Algeria's national airline, Air Algerie, says it has lost contact with one of its planes flying from Burkina Faso.

Contact was lost about 50 minutes after take-off from Ouagadougou, the airline is quoted by Algeria's state news agency as saying.

The passenger airliner, last seen at 0155 GMT, was bound for the Algerian capital Algiers, it added.

Flight AH 5017 had 110 passengers and six crew on board, officials said.

"In keeping with procedures, Air Algerie has launched its emergency plan," Air Algerie officials, quoted by APS news agency, said.

The plane is chartered from Spanish airline Swiftair.

In a statement (in Spanish), Swiftair said that the aircraft was an MD83 and that they were unable to establish contact with the plane. The plane was originally scheduled to land at 0510 local time, it said.

Flight AH 5017 flies the Ouagadougou-Algiers route four times a week, AFP news agency reported.

Thoughts of the film Flight of The Phoenix immediately came to mind when I read that the plane went missing over the Sahara. Unfortunately I don't think this flight will be so fortunate.

Yesterday or Today, WestJet had to make an emergency landing due to problem with the engine. I believe 2 days ago, Air Canada had to make an emergency landing as well this was due to weather I believe.

Is there just an increase in coverage by the media on this topic due to current public interest or does this sort of thing happen but just not get covered to this scale?
