Vol. 176  Issue 27

In the wake of a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 vanishing, aviation is working to make global flight-tracking a reality. A special report beginning on page 38 explains the technologies and details the latest work. In our cover photo, Michael Makin, a flight engineer warrant officer for the Royal Australian Air Force, searches for signs of MH370 in a Lockheed AP-3C Orion as part of Operation Southern Indian Ocean. The massive search spawned calls to overhaul how airlines and air navigation service providers track aircraft on oceanic routes. Royal Australian Air Force photo.
