Yeah hypoxia crash is an unfortunate likeliness when it comes to crash scenarios, unless someone knows of ways you could disable 100 mobile phones
in one quick go?
However I would've thought flight crews were better trained about this since the Helios 522 incident some years ago.
The problem is, that in itself wouldn't turn the transponders off. Unless the cracking around this apparent "weak spot" was so intense the whole thing
snapped off, and at around the same moment or just minutes before, the hypoxia had kicked in.
But I read that although it was an FAA instruction that their could be a problem, Malaysia Airlines did not have that antenna that had this fault
fitted to their 777's. The same as they possibly didn't have the real-time data (for engines etc) setup, because that too is an "optional extra".
Someone might want to try and confirm those facts for themselves, I'm not sure I can find the articles again in all the churning news...
I don't want to stoke the fire really...but this is ATS, so I will
I also found Malaysia's involvement (SAR) interesting. Sounded impressive on paper, looked appaulling on camera.
