Tracking Steve

After GlobalFlyer passes the Gander VOR (Very High Frequency Omni-range) point, near Gander, Newfoundland, Mission Control will call AIRINC in New York to give them position reports. AirInc will then relay the information to the agencies that control international air traffic. AirInc will update Steve's position because radar will not be available for portions of the flight over the Atlantic.
