wouldnt the plane have been on an airports radar or another planes radar? It would have to be so it wouldnt crash into other planes.

Only large airports have radar they use to maintain air traffic control. The planes themselves dont have radar and with most small planes, rely on line of sight. They listen and communicate headings along with altitude over the radio so they know where people are at. It's not like these small planes fly at 20K feet. As far as the black box, yes all planes have then but if you dont know a specific one you are looking for, it does you no good.

The witness was mistaken? It is not like you look out your window daily and see a plane on fire. And just because the neighbors did not see it doesn't meant it didn't crash. They would have to be looking out their windows at a very precise time to see the plane. And yesterday it was reported that they received a distress call from a plane. Was that just made up?

On a hot dry air night, it is possible for prop aircraft engine to emit fire from there exhaust and give the impression they are on fire. The engine was probly running rich as hot air had confused the fuel mixture.

It was either a meteor or a UFO, I'm betting on a meteor; but one never knows about those pesky UFOs, they're everywhere, gotta be careful. A person could get zapped, I can see it now, you're walking along, minding your business when suddenly POW!... you're rendered useless and wake up somewhere in Montana facing East.

I bet if there really was a plane it had a black pilot.

To clarify things from a pilot's perspective. There is no "black box" on almost all general aviation aircraft. They do have an ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) which is activated by the g-forces from a crash. The "black box" records data and voice where the ELT only transmits a signal, there is no recording. Radar service only works if it is requested. Due to the numerous small landing strips around, planes come and go off the radar screen all the time. During cross countries, most pilots file a flight plan with the FAA. This is a safety net in case something like this happens. It gives them a starting point if you don't report in. One of the things they teach you during pilot training is to tune to 121.5 and call out a mayday. While it is not required anymore for ATC (Air Traffic Control) to monitor this frequency, most do. With all these safety nets, it is possible, though unlikely, that this crash ever occurred.

I saw a fire in rural lincoln county monday night off highway 18 between meeker and sparks to the northeast.... a little before 10:00 flames were higher than the tops of the trees with a chemical smell in the air....I have told authorities in Lincoln County... I have not heard a response. I did not know anything about the lady in Shawnee when I saw the flames and smelled the heavy chemical smell... I really thought something would be on the news about the fire that night. I did not hear sirens or see fire trucks or anything..... it really concerned me. Then when I got to work Tuesday morning I saw the news about the lady in Shawnee and thought for sure it was the fire that I saw that was the plane crash but they called the search off later yesterday. I would like to know what was on fire that night though.... alot of black smoke very high flames and chemical smell... Concerned in Lincoln County.

I don't hate white people, I just think most white people are lazy and whine a lot about "how bad things are" ... but most of us (I'm white too) live comfy lives and have no idea what having it bad really means.

I agree and I am white too. You can whine all day long about how bad it is, only you can make it better. I have been in the poor house before, put your boots on and get too it. Times will get better.
