Another missing plane…

This has been a bad week for international air travel.
An Air Algerie flight carrying 110 passengers and six crew members has disappeared from radar.

Flight 5017 was flying from Burkina Faso to Algeria's capital when it vanished over northern Mali, the plane's owner and a French government official said.

Air controllers lost contact with the Swiftair MD-83 about 50 minutes after takeoff, the official Algerian news agency said. But it was hours before that information was made public.
Reports are that the plane has crashed in West Africa. Follow this twitter account for more information. It's usually accurate and gets the news out there faster than most news outlets.

Prayers to all on board and their families.
