The CNN weather guy beat me to it and says that the wall of storms topped out as 53,000. The crew might have been trying to find holes in the wall of storms and tried to adjust heading and altitude to fit through a possible hole.

If it still had the Thales pitot tubes it may have stalled in a storm, similar to AF447.


that is possible, but better flight training since then has reduced the risk of a flat stall

the plane in question was delivered in 2008, making it only 6 years old. very unusual for a plane this new to breakup in flight without help from say a terrorist & bomb


I'm going give you a point for that..
But what if? You didn't go to the required hour/flight time maintenance ?


just presenting facts as we know them at this point; but very unlikely, given the age, that structural failure is the cause, that is unless they flew into the very heart of a severe convective storm.

They may have requested a descent due to turbulence.


Has probably been posted by now but...


The aircraft had been flying at 32,000 feet and had asked to fly at 38,000 feet to avoid clouds, he said. - See more at: www.themalaymailonline.com...

I respect your view but who knows what the black ops money is spent on...only them.

When the Malaysian aircraft disappeared I, mentioned that perhaps it might have been a situation similar to the Bermuda triangle.

I don't believe in the military taking down any planes as suggested numerous times in here. I stand firm with my opinion.

I just hope that everyone one both planes are at peace and in a better place.

Good lord someone was quick to make a wiki page, I stumbled across it when i looked up if Branson and Fernandez were still the main stakeholders of Air Asia.
en.wikipedia.org...


OK.. it happened before.. yet it's still disturbing....

Sending out the SAR C-130s and teams would be wise. Chances of survival diminish as soon as an airplane hits the water.

Indonesian media reports search in Belitung region for the crash site.

And unless they've surreptitiously installed tracking systems then they can't do it.

Except for the fact that a number of airlines in that region have training problems. One Indian airline had pilots that hadn't been fully certified flying their planes.

The STORMS topped out at 53,000 not the flight.

They only requested a climb to 38,000. They'd never make it anywhere near 53,000. Well developed(like these) thunderstorms are commonly in the mid 40s to 50s so getting above them is not all that common.

I can't definitively say whether or not they should've been there because it depends on a lot of other factors.

Even many major Asian airlines have training issues.

The A320 airbus has a service ceiling of 41,000 feet, so as far as I can tell they would not have been heading over the top of a weather system which was 53,000 feet up.

That region has been expanding aviation wise way too fast.

No, they'd dodge around it as best they could.
