I can see NOTAMs to determine approx when his plane will land, but was wondering if there was a way to find out when he takes off? What field does AF1 leave from, and are there any twitter feeds, new...

Looks like the official search area is quite far from Duncan Steel's group prediction, but I've not compared the two areas on the same map yet.

Maybe they had only two range measurements which would give you two possibilities.
