AMID THE media frenzy and speculation over the disappearance of Air France's ill-fated Flight 447, the loss of two of the world's most prominent figures in the war on the illegal arms trade and international drug trafficking has been virtually overlooked.

It sounds more and more like it was a series of technical failures combined with weather conditions that brought the plane down, but that is a really interesting theory. What is up with all the weird attention about the laptop they found? Maybe it belonged to one of them?

are you kidding me?
your pulling weather data at the surface and applying it to an aircraft in flight.
Ice does form on aircraft in the tropics if your altitude is high enough, like the 35K feet that the a330 flies at.
There is the possiblity that it was abomb but it is more likely it was just an accident, planes do fall out of the sky on occasion.

one has claimed responsibility though - massive and sudden structural failure is where my money is.
A stall at 35,000ft – the altitude at which Flight 447 was cruising – is hard to recover from in still air. In the heart of a furious tropical storm at night, it could be near impossible. High-altitude stalls claimed several aircraft in the early days of jet aircraft.
