the `old` coffin corner - the height where the speed of sound is coming down the clocks and your stall speed is coming up fast - ever notice why no one flies about FL400?
Yet again, another Airbus...........they have a poor safety history....
the time, money, and best mechanics, are only used on the planes of the wealthy and powerful... we peons have to know our place. we are cattle herded on planes to make profits for the wealthy, and if several hundred die..oh well.. that's the cost of doing business.
why dont we fit planes with gps, we would know for sure then wouldn't we. its all a bit fishy maybe the first people to be saved by are friends from above, but lets face it we wont find out the truth. if it came down fast there would be debris floating around, if it came down under control surely atleast the person by the door would of got out.
did BA hide the 772 that came down in Heathrow? did the fact 7 boeing 777 have now crashed shake confidence?
I also find it very weird the amount of different nationalities on the plane. 26 Germans going to Paris yet there was a lufthansa flight 30 mins beforehand?? Just asking??
A330 is a fly-by-wire aircraft - they don't have physical connection from the flight controls to the control surfaces. Complete electrical failure = zero control
How can other planes with their own radar not see it vanish?
Hell, we can see what type of screw is on the wing of a moving 747 from top-secret military satellites...
No, this is a cover-up ... and It PAINS me that innocent people had to be involved.
Realistically, it is a problem w/the design of the plane -- and AirFrance and Airbus are trying to spin media.

Well if you hit turbulence in an aircraft at 470 knots or whatever speed we're talking then you get structural damage. That would likely include damage to wiring and systems.
Pilots are taught to reduce speed when penetrating turbulence but that's a dilema if you can't reduce speed because the air is so thin.

The webbots predicted people disappearing and mysterious islands appearing. I cant link the link for this yet but I will try and dig around.

You gotta love how the media makes up stuff.
They are now claiming that family members sent loved ones text messages before the plane went down.
Common sense and logic would tell you that this didn’t happen, for several reasons..... one, if the pilots didn’t have time to call for help and it happened so sudden, there is no way people had time to get their phone from their bags, switch them on and send a text.
Not to mention they where 35,000 feet in the sky, over the Atlantic Ocean.... which would have had no mobile phone single.
I hate when the media leave out the facts and make up their own.
