^But we don't know for sure if the plane was really kidnapped.

Yeah. A lot of jets fall, especially the private kind.. put them in a zone with less than relaxed regulations and pilots get too excited, making a lot of spur-of-the-moment decisions.. not saying that's what happened but it's probably more common than the automatic association with FARC or cartels.

Exactly. These things happen all the time with single-engine airplanes too. Say they have encountered bad weather on the way and poor flying conditions - that's a recipe for disaster right there.

Anyhow, doesn't bode well. Wishing the best.

If it's where the control tower lost the plane it is treacherous terrain.

My prayers and thoughts are with the Missoni family.

The pilot murdered thing is from the plane that disappeared five years ago. People suspect drug traffickers might have kidnapped that plane years ago. As for this plane now, there are no news.

Still no news, but Angela Missoni released a new statement:

Quote:
Angela Missoni Releases Statement On Her Missing Brother: 'We Will Not Give Up’

Vittorio Missoni, the chief executive of the Missoni fashion house, was reported missing this weekend. The 58-year-old was on an aircraft that disappeared off the coast of Venezuela during its short flight from the resort island of Los Roques. A naval ocean-searching vessel joined the hunt for Vittorio and his wife, Maurizia Castiglioni, as well as two friends and two crew who were also on board. As yet, no sign of the plane has been found. This afternoon, Angela Missoni has released the following statement:

‘I am now in Rome and in direct contact with the Italian Foreign Ministry and the State Police to report the disappearance of my brother while also co-ordinating all information and offers of aid that we have received globally.

'My brother Luca is now in Venezuela and is an active part of the search. He is a pilot and is also involved in the flight search over the area. Our AD, Alberto Piantoni, has just joined Luca in Venezuela. They are in direct touch with the Venezuelan authorities, the Unity of Crisis and the Italian Embassy.

'My children and nephews are all with my parents and are together at this difficult time.

'We are all moved by the affection and help that we have had from the whole world and thankful to the Authorities for their tireless search and rescue efforts.

'At this time, we have no further specifics regarding the search except to say we are confident they will continue at the same pace and the search with explore all possibilities. Our deepest thanks go to the multitude of supporters that have reached out to us from all over the world. We ask that you join us in the hope that the Missoni, Scalvenzi and Foresti families will soon be reunited.

We are full of hope and trust the great work the Authorities have been doing so far. We will not give up.

Pilot Says He Watched Missoni Plane Vanish [Updated]

While the search continues near Los Roques, Venezuela, for the plane carrying Missoni CEO Vittorio Missoni and five others, Enrique Rada, whose Cessna 402 took off after the BN2 Islander, told Turin's La Stampa (via Reuters): "I saw them right in front of me as they were swallowed up by a huge cumulus cloud ... It was a lightning bolt. It must have been a lightning bolt." He tried to make radio contact with the aircraft, but couldn't reach the pilot. Italian media speculate the passengers may have been kidnapped.
Update: The Daily Beast writes that the son of Guido Foresti (one of the five people in the plane with Missoni) received a text message from his father last night reading, "Call now, we are reachable."
Italian telephone company Telecom Italia Mobile confirmed to a local television station that the message was sent, but they say they cannot verify exactly when it was written. Foresti's son had been in regular contact with his father and says that he had heard from him before the plane took off, making the message even more curious.
The son has tried to call since, but the phone is no longer on.

in other countries there are so many single engine planes that are so antiquated I always hate to go on them. but sometimes you have no choice but to use their planes.

ETA
so many conflicting reports... we might not know what really happened.

if it was hijacked the plane would not go off the radar. other control towers will get its path due to air traffic control. it would make sense if the supposed hijack happened on ground - then the plane would still be on the tarmac w/out Missoni, friends and pilots. you cannot make any plane invisible on the radar unless it's a Stealth. i'm pretty sure this plane was no Stealth but an old jalopy of an aircraft.
