My condolences to this gentleman and his family as well..I would be the ats member that unfortunately might surmise that it may have been some type of satellite terrorism, or psychotronic weapon, that took this person's life away..



It would be easy enough for the gov to target individuals handling airplanes, since it is capable of such a thing technologically speaking that is..


In any case, it's unfortunate to read this news information;

Nah, people just work themselves to death. They have to, in the current economy.

In the old days, when we were just farmers, we could sit and watch the cows from our back porch, sip tea, and converse with our mates. Today, it's all stress.

Sometimes people suffer from sudden cardiac arrest. A heart-attack in our regular vernacular. No more, no less. May the Force be with him/her.

I've had planes land with deceased passengers before. It's just something that happens. On a long flight, someone sits too long, develops a blood clot, and at some point during the flight, it moves and they have a fatal heart attack.

Or the change in pressure puts more pressure on their heart and they have a heart attack. It's just sleeping that happens without any help from some government somewhere.

It gets really interesting when you have to do plane search on one of those aircraft, because they can't remove the body until the coroner signs off on the scene. So you have to search around the remains until they do.

Airlines captain dies at the controls despite desperate efforts of cabin crew. Now where is all that safe takeover technology they said all planes will be equipped with after 911.

If this is as good as they say it is there is no reason for the flight to be interupted all is there??

People die all the time without death beams, "psycho weapons" or mind control. It'll happen to you one day. Be around it a bit, you'll get over the need to assign it to some evil third party. Most people die from accident or sheer #ery.

This is the reason that you always need a copilot.
The terrible Germanwings disaster could have been avoided if it were not for the protocol of the airline having a coded lock on the cockpit that can only be opened by the pilot. The copilot was actually locked out of the cockpit when the pilot decided to commit suicide by crashing into the Alps. This is where anti terrorist precautions are actually putting lives at risk. They are so paranoid about the possibility of being hijacked, they have a locked cockpit which not even crew are allowed to access. I guess from the OP that American Airlines do not do this, otherwise hundreds of passengers could have been killed.

Oh, no #. There were five of us including Pop and not including Bob, and it was non-stop work.

eta: Well, six including Mom, but she didn't do field work.
