I thought when you deviated from your flight plan, you had to let ATC know. I wonder if there were oxygen tanks in the cargo hold or if it's like the Pan Am flight that had plastic explosives in the cargo hold.

There has to be some type of Emergency Locator ability on board. If the aircraft can email, it is pretty sophisticated.
