The Federal Aviation Administration issued an Alert Notice (ALNOT) on Atlas Air Flight 3591 after losing radar and radio contact with the Boeing 767 approximately 30 miles southeast of Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The aircraft was flying from Miami to Houston.

Not to speculate, but flight data showed their speed below 10,000ft to be well above 300kts. Possible in-flight cargo fire?

Always possible, you would however have expected them to communicate the issue.

Looks like a pretty nasty line of thunderstorms passed over the airport just as they were on approach.

Wow, my this appears to be right out in front of my parents old house just outside Anahuac. I think I could almost see their old house on one of the news videos. This doesn't look good.
