Was It The Repo Man?

Here are some interesting clues to the mysterious disappearance of that 727 (which, by the way, Fox News and others, is not a "jumbo jet") in Africa.

Hopefully, it is something like this, which eliminates the concern of potential terrorism.

It is amazing to me that someone could just walk up to this aircraft, load it with *extra* fuel and then just taxi and take off with out anyone noticing! Wow. I mean , while this is no 747 it's not a Piper Cub either.

Of course, it's not out of the question that the chief of security (such as it was) was handed a couple thousand dollars and everyone in the tower a few hundred just to mind their own business while he fueld it up and checked the engines...
