    I surprises me if that would not be standard practice for any senior member of the administration! Surely they don't broadcast to terrorists where they are?????

    It does seem to be on track to now head straight up ... similar path to the tweet above.

    Having 3 carriers (and all their support ships and subs) together in the same area seems to indicate this was planned quite a bit in advance!

    If we're going to have a military showdown, might as well get it out of the way

    It's not feasible to blackout a flight. Only thing you can do is avoid telling anyone who is on the flight. All planes show on radar and planes with their transponder turned off will just cause air traffic control to send the military to check them out. Even the NATO planes operating around Ukraine can be seen on flightradar. The only exception are military planes flying a combat mission.

    The story for the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier (based in Japan) is that it is just heading home from a trip to Singapore:

    Tripoli and America are LHAs. Still more powerful than anything that the PRC Navy could muster but its not like the USN concentrated all their pacific CVs in such a tiny spec of ocean
