Pilot error to that extent will cause a plane to break up in flight.

I am not jumping to any conclusions , i just threw something out there , i mean 2 planes could not take down the world trade centres could they .
Its just that is so far out there, its not even borderline plausible

EDIT/ADD: I'm leaning more to a bomb on the plane, and Egypt having a critical security lapse.. i don't buy the accident theory pushed by a few influential members.. i think the only reason we're still debating anything is Russia wants to be 100% sure before it lays the hammer down in response.
The Russian airline Kogalymavia has blamed "external activity" for Saturday's Sinai plane crash which killed 224 people.
One airline official said: "The only reasonable explanation is that it was [due to] external activity."
An investigation by aviation experts using data from the aircraft's "black boxes" has yet to give its conclusions.
A Kremlin spokesman has told the BBC terrorism could not be ruled out as a possible cause of the crash.
At a news conference in Moscow, the deputy director of the airline, which was renamed as Metrojet, ruled out a technical fault and pilot error.
"The only explicable reason for the plane to have been destroyed in mid-air can be specific impact, purely mechanical, physical influence on the aircraft," Alexander Smirnov said.
And those people are idiots who think the world is black and white and simply do not get the multifaceted and nuanced conflict going on in Syria
