The Least Expected way the Missing Fly540 Plane Was located

A signal from the Fly540 plane which went missing on Tuesday evening after take-off from Kitale, has been located in Aberdare forest near Kinangop.

The signal was from a mobile phone believed to be that of one of the ten passengers who were aboard the aircraft.

This was the least expected way they tried to trace the plane since as per flight precautionary measure,passengers are advised to either switch-off or set their portable electronic devices , including any mobile phones, to flight mode.

The general assumption is that passengers must disable our mobile phones – some more begrudgingly than others – as their signal interferes with navigation instruments, and could even cause a crash.

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport control tower reported that it lost contact with the plane at 5:20pm.

The caravan aircraft registration number 5Y-CAC had 8 passengers and 2 crew members.

“At present, East African Safari Air Express has no knowledge of the location or condition of the aircraft or its occupants,” the statement released on Tuesday said.

Relatives and next of kin have been asked to convene at Weston Hotel for more information.
