As the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet continues, the head of FedEx said Thursday that airlines will move quickly to better track aircraft over the ocean.
Frederick Smith, CEO of the cargo-delivery company, told the International Aviation Club that maintenance and navigational equipment aboard most airliners could be adapted to better keep track of planes. That would help reduce the gaps between planes, making flights more efficient and saving money on fuel, he said.
“It is unacceptable to the public for a 777 airplane in 2014 with 239 souls on board to go missing,” Smith said, “so there’s going to be a response.”
FedEx Driver Crossed California Interstate Median
The authorities on Friday were investigating what caused the driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer to cross a grassy center divide and slam into a chartered bus carrying high school students on a trip to a Northern California university.
The accident, which killed 10 people and left dozens injured, occurred Thursday evening on Interstate 5 in Orland, a town about 100 miles north of Sacramento. Both the FedEx truck and bus burst into flames, shutting down traffic on both sides of the highway.
The California Highway Patrol said the drivers of the bus and the truck and several students were among the dead.
