So does the coastguard not have the ability to use radar? Was Mexico not tracking it ? Were they just hoping it didn't crash into a populated area?
Maybe dumb questions I know but it just seems weird that NORAD hands it over to the coastguard and no-one seems to be seriously watching it...
Maybe I'm just wrong...
