Be warned. Spoilers ahead.
I feel like I'm missing something obvious... at the beginning of episode S01E01 of The Strain, air traffic control notices the flight has simply stopped on the runway. Bishop, the guy in charge, goes to inspect. The plane is off, quiet and dark, with its door closed. The plane feels cold. Nearly all of the windows are shut.
At that point, they conclude that they must notify each and every agency to come down. Uhh... why? I get notifying ONE agency... or a specialist team... but why instigate a media circus?
