These events bring up so much I don't know or had not thought about. I hear from the radio news that radar makes it pretty easy to pinpoint exactly where the missile was fired from. Whether the world will ever get two answers that agree from the various radar operators covering the area and whether they will tip their hands to exactly how much they can resolve is a different matter, but it's interesting to me that radar coverage is that good. Another thing that gives me pause for thought is just how well equipped are the crazies in this world (for various definitions of crazy). For all I know it may be damn near impossible to fly long haul without coming into the theoretical range of at least one bad guy with a good missile system.

Maybe someone else has already pointed this out, but there seems to be a lot of focus on the mobile device working and little focus on a stand-alone battery. I have a stand alone USB backup battery that I can charge my phone with and it's bigger than the phone, but it's just a battery "powering it on" just makes a blue light come on.

Presumably this means they'll want the phones to go through alone in their own tub too, that will increase the length of lines for the X ray by 30% or so.
