      They have 239 of them. :-)

      Before 9/11, I guess we could have. Now, we can't.

      > 3. Which is more improbable -- that a plane with a 200 ft wingspan avoided radar detection and is hidden somewhere on land, concealed from the air despite the efforts of half a dozen countries with state-of-the-art equipment, searching for ten days, to locate it? Or that it is at the bottom of the ocean? (Or is this a case of alien abduction?)

      I think avoiding radar detection is fairly easy - you just need to fly
      at altitudes less than 10K ft. Of course it will kill your fuel
      efficiency but that's a small price to pay I guess.
