yeah so... basically it seems like the plane was most likely hit by a missile...
but they aint saying anything til they get all the evidence... cos yknow... the situation..
Fired by whom'st've?
trigger happy iranians?
the black box will tell all.. but Iran has it... and apparently they need some people from seattle to collect it
so... if they allow americans to come collect it... then we'll see what happened... but with it...
they aren't going to hand over an incriminating black box are they
and the pilot had 11k hrs experience, 5k as a captain
depends... if they dont hand it over, it will look suspicious anyway so... they have to do something
black box will mysteriously go missing
Trump address in 30 mins
or be conveniently damaged
in my mums opinion the plane was hit by something
but they cant "officially" speculate
Hit by something
basically, what she was telling me is that if an engine failed or even in the unlikely event that both engines failed it would have glided, somewhat, and come down harder than normal.. but very survivable (no explosions)
ah ok.. the Iranian civil aviation's head has already said they are not giving the black box over
oh yeah, another thing she mentioned... that plane was only a few years old... practically new
she said something about radar as well... apparently planes dont just drop out of radar, even when very low
Looking at the pics and video around on Pol it was clearly shot.
this allegedly shows it crashing & burning
modern airliners don't do that from benign causes
yeah my mum was saying its designed to glide down even if both engines went.. which is rare enough on its own
So...Stupid trigger happy militia?
she sounded fairly stressed... i imagine shes not having the best day 😛
the calls from the british families who lost someone on the flight will probably come through to her as well
how many brits were on it
That will be hard to go through
I heard there were a lot more Canadians
canadians with canadian-iranian dual citizenship
I find it really hard to understand where Jonathan Pie is
is he one of us
He's a bit of both
liberal left - anti-tory seems to be his stance
