One -- to the poster who thinks the news is being diverted from Gaza -- are you for real?? There's so much coverage about Israel pummeling Gaza that it might as well be over-saturation. I'm already tired of hearing about it. Flame the bleep away, I'm sick of tunnel vision stories & over-saturation via the news in general, it blots out everything else going on. Detracting from Gaza my derriere, it's like they're trying to drive people to apathy through too much constant channel coverage.

Two, planes crash from weather, it happens. Pilot error happens. That is nothing new, but keep letting yourselves think it is. Should we include every private twin-engine and make it a bigger number while we're at it? I feel bad for the passengers, but unless they were sabotaged or shot down, there's no conspiracy there.

Yes I suppose you are correct, I am not well versed on aircraft guidance systems. My thought was more based on the idea that there may be localised effects rather than worldwide. However, I was just clutching at straws.

Plane crashes always seem to happen in threes for some reason. If you look back through history you can see patterns in crashes. In one day in 2010, an Airbus A300 Freighter crashed, a Boeing 737 overran the runway, and an A330 landed with both engines out.

You can see how many times crashes have occurred close to other crashes on this list. And this is only commercial, this doesn't take into account general and business aviation.

I suppose it's possible, it just doesn't seem likely with the sheer amount of planes that are in the air at any one time. If you look at flightaware, it's kind of mind boggling the amount of planes in the air. It's a wonder there aren't more accidents.

Aside from the plane that was shot down, maybe with the weakening of the magnetosphere weather patterns are changing rapidly and creating previously unforeseen situations that are more likely to cause plane accidents. Just a tought.

Mentioned was a sandstorm on the planes route. No mention of heights of either.

14 hours in and at least 8 hours of daylight. Where is Inmarsat now? Shouldn't we all be scouring the Sahara digitally? There's a million of us that can help look. Still not seeing any confirmation that it has crashed personally, that seems to be an initial statement taken a little too literally. Just a statement from a glass half empty kind of spokesperson.

The storm clouds were reported over 40,000 feet. No word on a sandstorm that I've found so far.

It disappeared from radar because it crashed.

According to Fox news, two French jets have located the crash site.


A French Ministry of Defense official tells Fox News that the Air Algerie jet carrying 116 people that vanished from radar shortly after takeoff late Wednesday night has crashed in Mali, and that two French fighter jets have located the wreckage.

Last I noticed was the the media 'jumping the gun' again, they reported it crashed and in the articles they said it disappeared from radar.
Hmmmmmmm....... do we have another jet "vanishing?"

The wreckage was found by two French Air Force Mirage 2000s that backtracked the flight path.

I understand that it was probably a weather related problem but who can really confirm that it didn't disappear a couple minutes before the crash?

they lost contact 10 minutes before the crash, right?

That was probably when the crash actually occurred, and it took that long to figure out that it went down. There's usually a delay between loss of contact and declaring an aircraft downed.

Update:


However, Mariela Castro later told Venezuelan channel TeleSUR by telephone that she was 'alive' denying all reports that she had been a passenger. "I'm alive and kicking, happy and healthy," she said. The airport's Facebook page later removed the statement.




Fidel Castro’s nice, Mariela Castro, a prominent gay rights activist, was on board the flight, according to the official Facebook page of Burkina Faso’s main airport - Ouagadougou.
