It's one of those events that could mean nothing or it could indicate the end is near. The fact that the United States 'Doomsday Plane' just flew over Missouri is probably not a big deal. Maybe.

Just so you know, the location of the 'Doomsday Plane' is public knowledge. It's not like I have access to classified info. The E-4B National Airborne Operations Center, which is a modified Boeing 747, can be tracked (most of the time) by the website Flight Aware. As of this writing, this is the flight path of one of the 'Doomsday Planes'. Notice it went directly over the southern tip of Illinois and all of southern Missouri today.

The E-4B National Airborne Operations Center is one of the best equipped planes in the world meant to maintain a working government for the United States in the event of a worst-case scenario. The United States Air Force website explains the specifics:

In case of national emergency or destruction of ground command and control centers, the aircraft provides a highly survivable command, control and communications center to direct U.S. forces, execute emergency war orders and coordinate actions by civil authorities.

It's worth mentioning that this is a unique flight path for the 'Doomsday Plane' as it normally and regularly travels from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland to its home base in Nebraska. This is the first time I've seen it on a southern trajectory, but again, it's probably fine.

I'm honestly not sure why the 'Doomsday Plane' location is available on Flight Aware. If the government made this classified, I would understand why that might be necessary. Recently, I've noticed there were periods of time when it's not trackable. But, as of now, you can see where the potential national disaster headquarters is on Flight Aware.
