    Well spotted Blacknail! The plot thickens lol - I wonder if we'll ever hear what this one is about.

      The flight is in the air from Paris to Gander http://www.flightradar24.com/N163PA/4b6f233 - I'm guessing it had to stop in Paris to refuel as no country in West Africa would allow it to stop that is just a guess.

        Interesting!

        Ok. So I see the plane leaving France en route to Atlanta but there is no flight listed from Dakar to France. Am I missing something or is this the operating procedure? Not listing the flight info out of Africa? Magically appearing in Europe after a last stop in Africa?

          I wish there would be some transparency.

            I wonder if the plane flew this patient from Sierra Leone to Paris?

            France is treating a United Nations employee who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, the health ministry said on Sunday.

            "This person, who worked in Sierra Leone in the fight against Ebola, has undergone a secure medical evacuation by specialised aircraft," the ministry said in a statement.

            The victim has been placed in isolation under high security in an army training hospital in Saint-Mande near Paris.

              That is a logical assumption and now the plane is returning to its base for cleaning...

                From what I have learned about tracking flights in the past week, the missing flight information is because data isn't gathered from most of Africa. The flight information is provided by North American and European governments as well as individuals who have these ADS-B receivers who are mostly located in North America and Europe. This means that the portion of these flights to and from Africa are not on the 2 websites (flightaware and flightradar24). In this case, the pilot filed a flight plan to Dakar which Flightaware downloaded from the FAA and then the pilot filed a flight plan to Atlanta a couple of days later and it was also downloaded by flightaware. Individual receivers connected to flightradar24 (literally people with an antenna, free equipment from the website and an always on internet connection) picked the flight up as it approached Spain and tracked it landing in Paris around 20:30 UTC and then taking off again around 22:00 UTC on its way to Gander.

                    Yes, you might have solved the mystery! The plane was on the ground in Paris for 1.5-2 hours which is longer than it would typically stop for refueling. Maybe it has to land in Atlanta to clear customs as its home airport of Cartersville doesn't have customs.

                      A second case of Ebola treated in France

                      France hosts a new infected patient with the Ebola virus, treated in the hospital Instruction armed Begin in Saint-Mande (Val de Marne) , announced the Ministry of Health in a statement Saturday night.

                      The patient is an employee of a UN agency working in Sierra Leone, that Paris has agreed to take charge of at the request of the World Health Organization, the ministry said.

                      "This person (...) has been the subject of medicalised sanitary and secured evacuation by special plane. The entire circuit support was secured from the off Freetown and air travel to hospitalization in high-security isolation room dedicated to the military hospital Bégin (Saint-Mande) where she receives medical attention, "the ministry said, specifying that" there is no other case confirmed Ebola in the territory. "

                      The only case of Ebola previously treated on the French territory is a nurse at Doctors Without Borders, which was released in early October healed.
