last night... "Air vehicle is not responding to commands to abort the
flight. Currently drifting toward Boston with a slow descent rate."

Now that was really interesting reading!!! I hope it doesn't get sucked

or Goose Bay could "help" it get back on the ground! Looks like it's
heading right towards Gander.
