LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - These incidents occurred on June 5 and 6, Austria's flight safety organization admitted, announcing that the height, location and other information for 13 aircraft disappeared from air traffic controller screens.

A spokesman for Austro Control, Markus Pohanka, said relevant E.U. agencies have been notified about the invent and asked to investigate the situation.

He also admitted that several neighboring countries also lost the flights when they disappeared from radar systems, and that European Aviation Safety Agency and E.U.'s Eurocontrol have been asked to look into the situation.

The German-language newspaper, Kurier, reported that flight controllers in Germany, Czech Republic and Slovakia had reported similar problems.

Air traffic was conducted via voice only during the blackouts, which was one reason no collisions took place.

Part of the worry over this issue revolves around missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared from radar an hour into the flight on March 8, and has remained lost with its 239 passengers and crew.

Pohanka did not discuss which planes or airlines where involved, and reported that there was no danger at any time due to extra air controllers which were brought in during the emergency.

"There is no situation in aviation where there is not another procedure that takes place," he told MailOnline Travel. "We noticed that some of the responder data sent from the plane to the ground disappeared for a short period of time from the radar screens. That is the reason why the contingency procedures were put into place."

He went on to say that "Voice communication guaranteed that we knew everything about the planes in Austrian air space and allowed air traffic controllers to do their jobs."
