Isis has released this picture in their magazine Dabiq saying it was the IED that took down the Russian airliner over Egypt.

They are also saying they have executed 2 prisoners one from China and one from Norway.

The bomb just looks so simple, a coke can takes down an airliner.

Isis releases Dabiq magazine claiming to reveal how it brought down the Russian plane in Sinai


The edition of the "Dabiq" magazine, published in English by an Isis media arm, claims the plane was bombed using an improvised explosive device hidden inside a can of Schweppes Gold pineapple juice.

Entitled "Just Terror", the cover displayed an image of one of the victims of the Paris attacks being treated by the emergency services.

And in its forward, it claimed to reveal how militants "discovered a way to compromise the security at Sharkm el-Sheikh airport" to bring down the Metrojet airliner on 31 October.

I say we boycott Schweppes!

A desktop PC switch, a detonator and a Schweppes Gold soft drinks can. So where's the 1.25 Kg of explosives that the Russians claimed to use? Was the bomb place inside a food trolley?

A bomb was placed on a Philippine Airlines 747 that just missed taking it down that was made out of a bottle of contact lens cleaner. It doesn't take much. All you need to do is breach the skin and the stress will do the rest.

Gives new meaning to Pineapple Grenade. >.<

No offense meant towards those who died from this atrocity.

Well what do you expect a bomb to look like ? Sticks of dynamite stuck together with duct tape ? A stick of C4 ?

The lockerbie bomb was a cassette player, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was any item you'd find round the house that can be used to house the explosive and detonator

Im interested to hear what your thoughts are on this, since you initially believed it was not a bomb... now that the news are confirming it was.... what do you make of that?

is something dodgy?

If you look at the can you can see the charge is inserted in the hole in the bottom. The can is likely packed full of explosive material....not positive, but appears the bottom of the can had been cut away and the putty material is what was used to put it back on.

That looks really sophisticated. They make a bomb out of a 17 cent soda can that can bring down a plane. We spend billions of dollars a year on defense, part of which is missles to bring down planes. I bet ISIS has a balanced budget.

With binary explosives you don't need much.

In the video they take a match heads amount of explosive, put it on a black powder fuse, to blow up a watermelon.



If you know what you're doing. You can do a lot of damage.

I would be interested to find out how they pulled this off if this is indeed the bomb. As in, someone at the airport put this in the drink cart, then someone on board grabbed it, or if a flight attendant may also be involved (i.e. knew to give this to someone or detonate themselves).

From what it looks like, I don't see any timer in the picture, so if this is the bomb, they should be able to go through the passenger manifest / flight attendants, since this would have to have been detonated by hand.

Granted, this is all assuming everything in the pic is the entire / actual device used.

I still say it reeks and was terribly convenient. You don't mistake an engine problem for a bomb, and bombs don't usually leave a second or two of odd noises on the CVR. There's usually a loud sound and sudden end to the recording.

As for the bomb itself, there's no reason it wouldn't work to bring the aircraft down. The fuselage is under a lot of stress at that point because of pressurization.

The hole is probably where you slip the detonator in... detonator in the center and a switch with an on and off led circuit.... like you really need to know when it's on...

Yup...

Ill tell you what reeks even more.... that the world stopped talking about it (including ATS), up until 2 days after the Paris incident, when they 'confirmed' it was a bomb!

It would take two 16 oz cans if they were using Semtex (previously favored for bombing airliners). A 12 oz can would only hold 511 grams of it... according to my calculations.
ETA: I was just addressing the 1.25 kg thing.
511 grams of any high order explosive would be plenty enough to do the job as long as it was placed properly in the a/c.

Even if you're being sarcastic the two aren't comparable. A bomb in the fuselage will not only cause damage to the outer skin, it will collapse the floor, which cuts hydraulic lines and control cables. Commercial aircraft were designed to be as light and efficient as possible.

Missiles were designed to take down military aircraft, which require a lot of damage. There have been A-10s that landed with over 200 holes in them. No commercial aircraft could withstand that.

Put it in the check in bag. A simple pressure switch added to it would serve as a timer.

I was being sarcastic. I realize that civilian and military air crafts take varying degrees of sophistication to bring them down. My point was only in response as to what appears to be a relatively low tech, low cost method used by ISIS.

All flights are scanned with metal detectors... I would think this be an inside job..... I mean why even use a can drink disguised as a bomb if you smuggle it on a plane?

something not right with that picture/story....

Got me thinking.... why dont they just build commercial aircraft as secure as air force one.... instead of having first class cabins... you could have a first class plane with security above all else! i think it would be financially feasible! people with money prefer security these days!
