Yesterday, a small plane bound for Naples, Fla., went off course and headed toward Cuba. U.S. military jets followed. The situation was uncertain for about four hours.

The Daily Mirror (a British tabloid) started a live-blog for the incident. It’s a little odd in that the oldest (earliest) event is at the top. In live blogging, usually we put the latest, newest event at the top. But otherwise this example serves as a good example of journalists following a breaking news situation and posting updates — all at a single URL — until the incident came to a conclusion.
