As most are already aware, there has been a recent spate of plane crashes.

Iran crash - kills 168

Yemini crash - Kills 150+

Air France - Kills 228

Something all three have in common, is that they all appear to have dropped out of the sky for undetermined reasons.

Below are quotes in regards to each crash:

Iran Crash:


The cause of the crash, which happened soon after take-off, was not known. Witnesses said it dropped from the sky.


Air France Crash:


French investigators trying to find out why an Air France plane crashed in the Atlantic say they believe it broke up on contact with water, not in the air. They also found that the plane's speed sensors had been "a factor but not the cause" of the crash.


Yemini Crash:

I'm unable to find an article on the internet to confirm this, but I can remember it being said on the news in the UK that the lone survivor stated that it was as though the plane received an electric shock and then it dropped out of the sky.


What can be causing these crashes? It seems very unusual that they have all happened within a couple of months of eachother with no sure confirmation of why. What factors can contribute to a plane malfunction? Do the government know more than they are saying?

I dont know how credible this site is, but from the looks of the database section it doesnt seem like there's been more plane crashes than normal this year.. and I guess it just takes time for them to establish what exactly caused the crashes.

It seems rather strange of the recent plane crashes but i think its important to keep in mind that it could still be coincidence as well as an open mind the possibility something is really happening. Until better evidence comes along, its bit hard to speculate at this early stage.

Have you seen the in-air photos taken by an Air France passenger that shows the rear part of the aircraft breaking up and the blue sky as well as the tailplane at an abnormal angle?

As well as a passenger being sucked out of the hole in the fuselage.



The Yemini crash still doesn't have anything other than conjecture at this point and I believe they're still looking for the "Black Boxes."



This mornings new blurbs on Drudge report witnesses reporting the tail area of the Tupolev airliner on fire as it circles the area and then goes down.


It would be interesting to know at what angle the Tupolev went in at.

Heck of a big hole in the ground and shredded pieces of aircraft everywhere.

Would be an interesting comparison to the Pennsylvania crash site during 9-11.

Like most mechanical things, they get old, they suffer wear and tear and parts need to replaced.

In aviation there are strict guidlines to maintenance of aircraft however these are done by humans, and we all know humans aren't perfect and prone to error. There was a crash where a maintenance crew had accidentally duct taped over a vent which caused the crash, I forget which flight it was however but I'm sure google can answer that for you.

It's no conspiracy, the simple reality is mechanical equipment isn't 100% reliable and is prone to breaking, age is playing a big factor, not to mention most of the crashes that have happened in the past have been with less, how can I say, reliable ? airlines who may not adhere as strictly to maintenance as someone such as BA or AA. Not to mention we live in age of global media where everything that happens is reported now compared to say 10 or 20 years ago where it wasn't as worldwide. And when you combine it with human error the answer to your question seems very plausible


The chances of you being on an aircraft and it you crashing to your impending doom are still very very slim so it's not really something to get scared of, air travel is still one of the safest forms of travel in the world!

Ummm.... they were fake and were screen captures from the first episode Lost! They were also used in a previous airline crash as a hoax

There were also a few military plane crashes and small aircraft crashes recently too (this year...maybe all within the last 4 months or so)

I always thought the satellite collision and the sub collisions were all tied together somehow too.


Who knows?

Thanks all for your thoughts on this! Looking at that link, there does appear to be crashes quite often so the recent aren't necessarily out of the ordinary but maybe in the MSM abit more. One thing that got me abit suspecious, which I should have posted before, is this article I came across a few weeks back:

Russians order Flight Changes, after Massive Magnetic Shift downs Airliners...

Given the latest talk about the supposed solar storm that was predicted on 07/07, the sun has been focussed on alot lately, so I'd imagine if there was anything going on, we would be aware of it.
