That’s too bad, the 787 could have been one of the great planes

It is one of the great aircrafts, I think Boeing just rushed, so as to get a bigger slice of the market.

It is more probable that Google/FlightRadar24 has the answer to this forum…

I get this all the time popping up, I don’t think anything of it,

I think it would be cool for FlightRader to have a
‘Altitude Loss’
Or
‘Hijacking in Progress’ notification.

There used to be a squawking code for hijacks but I think it was removed…

Well, in real life it’s like 7557 or something like that, but I think it was removed/outdated because even I know that, so someone hijacking would definitely understand the pilots code.

I mean, if those ukraine people used Flight Tracker, they wouldn’t have shot down MH17,
