Covering the NATO-led military intervention in Libya has enabled The New York Times, among other outlets, to peg some pretty unconventional datelines--that snippet of text before an article explaining where the journalist is reporting/filing from--to their stories. A few days ago, for example, C.J. Chivers reported from aboard a tugboat--the Al Iradah 6--on rebel efforts to smuggle supplies to the beseiged city of Misrata by sea. But Eric Schmitt may be giving Chivers a run for his money. Today's he's reporting from "Over the Mediterranean Sea," in what appears, from a quick Google and Times search, to be the first time a journalist has filed from aboard an AWACS command-and-control plane.
