I'm watching bits and pieces of Stealth. There's a scene where Jessica Biel (be still my beating heart) has trouble in her fighter and ends up ejecting over North Korea. Before she does, she breathlessly gives her lat/lon position over the radio. Now, these are planes that send, back to the commanders on the carrier, real-time, high-fidelity video of the pilots, along with biomed telemetry, and who knows what else. Why wouldn't they already know exactly where she was?
Did I miss the part where her systems were knocked out and didn't work? Guess it's lucky that the radio still did.
