I just read on a website of a Belgian newspaper that a charter airplane , going from Spain (Barcelona) to Algeria (Oran) disappeared from radar yesterday evening.
It had requested that it could change his route due to bad weather but later it disappeared from the radar. Spanish rescue teams where searching the area but where unsuccesfull.
The plane was owned by 'Flight Line' and was carying 7 passengers and 2 crew.
Accorfding to a Spanish news source the passengers are all American managers.

Anyone has more information on this ? Apparanetly this article was put on the site at 21.45 local time. Wednesday evening. Is there already more information at this moment ?

It was a light jet ("metro") with eight american passengers, and two spanish crew. Took off from Barcelona at 10.20 AM and was expected at 11.58 AM at Oran. After 20' from take off crew made a request to change their route due the bad weather conditions, but a few after lost radar contact. The plane was from the company "Flight Line", sited in Barcelona, dedicated to charter light jets.
