Maybe bad timing but:

 

A Blonde is watching the news with her husband when the newscaster says “Over 200 Brazilian people die in an airplane crash.”

 

The blonde starts crying to her husband, sobbing uncontrollably and says “That's horrible, how could this happen?”.

 

Concerned, he says, “Yes dear, it is sad, there was a storm and sometimes this happens.”

 

After a few minutes, the blonde, still sobbing, says, “How many is a Brazilian?”

:lol:

Last time I checked they were looking all over the fucking atlantic. Fact is they don't know for sure where it went down.

 

It's nearly impossible to comprehend how vast area they're looking at here.

If bodies are gonna wash up on shores somewhere it's probably gonna be coast of Brazil, but it could take months if not years.

It's 360 miles off coast MINIMUM and we're not exactly talking about lightning express when it comes to sea currents.

There was a 300km wall of thunderstorms along the flight path when it disappeared. Keep in the mind this is near the equator, and storms are bad. This one was a tropical depression in particular, and the plane went right through it.

 

Some say that lightning might have disabled some electronics on the plane - one of the automated alerts sent to AirFrance maintenance headquarters was for an electronic short circuit. This may have possibly disabled the weather radar, as well as radio.

 

And since they were flying through a potentially dangerous storm, which it was, turbulence could be a huge factor. Another automated alert which was transmitted was for depressurization, which may suggest that the plane was breaking up as a result of encountering heavy turbulence.

 

Unfortunately, the plane only had enough fuel for the haul to Paris-CDG, so really the only option it had was to turn around back to Brazil or go straight through. The storm was so large that a diversion would have been unfeasible.

But the strange thing is that the airbus is a very modern plane and has built in fail safe features to protect against lightning strikes. If an engine gets struck ( which i think is what is usually happens) it somehow compensates for it and the plane is ok

 

 

This plane in particular was delivered in '04 or '05, so it was brand new with under 20,000 flight hours.

 

Newer planes are built with many composites now, and that may conduct electricity differently.

 

Who knows, there is a ton speculation going on at this point. A lot of official information is being withheld from the public, supposedly. It is possible that we'll never know what happened unless the in-flight voice recorder and flight data recorder are recovered from very deep water.

"In light of an Air Comet pilot's report to Air France, Airbus and the Spanish civil aviation authority that, during a Monday flight from Lima to Lisbon "Suddenly, we saw in the distance a strong and intense flash of white light, which followed a descending and vertical trajectory and which broke up in six seconds", the Cosmic Variance blog team on the Discover Magazine website muses on the question "What is the probability that, for all flights in history, one or more could have been downed by a meteor?". Taking into account total flight hours and the rate of meteoric activity with the requisite mass to impact on Earth (approximately 3,000 a day), some quick math suggests there may be one in twenty odds of a plane being brought down in the period from 1989 to 2009. Intriguingly, in the aftermath of TWA flight 800's crash in 1996, the New York Times published a letter by Columbia professors Charles Hailey (physics) and David Helfand (astronomy), in which they stated the odds of a meteor-airplane collision for aviation history up to that point: one in ten.

In 2002 a group of french submarines ingeniors have been killed in a bomb attack in pakistan and this was attributed to al qaida.

 

A few days ago the real story started to emerge. In fact it seems that it was a retaliation operation from the pakistan government in order to punish the France for stopping paying occult commission for the submarines contract. After that the France is suspected to have killed one pakistani responsible.

 

There is always a lot of mystery around french linked catastroph.

 

Lots of interests Air France, Airbus,Thales, relations with Brazil less than one month before the Bourget meeting.

this made me lol......:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: sorry....

 

if I were to go down in a plane, id hope that it was by meteor, for some reason I feel that that would be the only acceptable way to go down with all our advances and shit....
