Mobile Phones Threat To Aircraft

Slashdot discussion today regarding continuing research by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) supporting the premise that "mobile telephone transmissions made by airline passengers can interfere with aircraft equipment". The article indicates that by using your mobile phones can "adversely affect navigation and communication functions, producing significant errors on instrument displays and background noise on audio outputs."

So turn your mobile devices off when you're flying folks - better safe than sorry.
