Was AF447 brought down by Geo-Magnetic Activity?


www.msnbc.msn.com

“Nobody in their right mind would ever go through a thunderstorm,” said Tim Meldahl, a captain for a major U.S. airline who has flown internationally for 26 years, including more than 3,000 hours on the same A330 jetliner."

I was wondering how this plane could just disappear? A lightning strike is possible however highly unlikely. I then began to wonder if a solar flare brought it down. With the map in the MSNBC article it shows last contact occured on the North edge of the South Atlantic Anomoly. I then began to look at the Real-Time Magnetosphere Site and reviewed the video archives for the 31st and the 1st and there are some interesting things happening. Also looking through SOHO on the same dates there is definitely something happening before midnight and after.

Would the Anomoly make anything in that area more vulnerable to even a light direct hit from a solar flare? It would explain the reported electrical failure and could also explain the cabin pressure loss as an overload on the electrical system could have caused a fire and even explosion.

Just a thought but we're suppose to think outside the box on this site. Right?

It's my first time so be gentle

I've been on planes that have flown through thunderstorms before.

Even one that was hit by lightning.

Safest form of travel my butt.

thats a very interesting take on it - i think you see some kind of flare around the 65 frame mark....

I suppose I could have. Didn't want to seem like I was highjacking the thread. You can see the magnetic field fluctuates alot around May 31 approx 2100UTC. On the SOHO images it looks like a CME around the same time frame.


MODS feel free to move it if you feel it's appropriate.
