About 50 planes temporarily disappeared from radars in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia between June 5 and June 10, Austria's flight safety monitor said.

German and Czech air traffic control also reported brief disappearances.

Slovakia blamed the outages on planned military exercises.

"The disappearance of objects on radar screens was connected with a planned military exercise which took place in various parts of Europe...whose goal was the interruption of radio communication frequencies," the Slovak air traffic services said in a statement.

"This activity also caused the temporary disappearance of several targets on the radar display, while in the meantime the planes were in radio contact with air traffic controllers and continued in their flight normally.”

Right after the problem with the radars was detected, the organizing party was made aware and the exercises were stopped, Slovakia's air traffic services added.

Slovakia did not mention a military force involved in the exercises, but Austrian media pointed towards NATO.

Austrian daily Curier reported on June 7 that the first disappearance problems coincided with NATO conducting electronic warfare exercises in Hungary.

During the exercises NATO was reportedly using devices that can interfere with enemy radar, according to the Telegraph.

German air traffic control stated that it is trying to identify the cause of the outages.

"Planes disappeared from screens for a matter of seconds, here and there. The outages were sporadic and not grave...It must have been an external source of disruption,” a spokesperson said.

Authorities said the outages did not pose any serious threat.

In the wake of the still missing MH370 airliner it is important to not that the initial MH370 reports were repetitive and insistent of the point that people were still receiving cell phone signals from cell phones of passengers on the plane AFTER it had disappeared from radar.

Was NATO War Games really behind the disturbances in Europe Air-Traffic Control or is there something else going on? It have been reported to expect Sun Storms this week so maybe such an electric event could make radar screens go blank. But for the moment we are all still in the "dark"..
