    About over the mark.

    I am reading a report on the tragic crash of Flight 3407 in Buffalo and don't quite understand the term 'over the mark'. Could anyone help explain its meaning? Thank you.

    Soon afterward, a controller says: "All I can tell you is the aircraft is over the mark and we're not talking to them."

    Generally, this phrase means
    ''to have gone past the point (of something)"

    For example, "the pilot has gone past the landing point"
