Goldenoras, you asked:
"Why is it logical not to interpret Swiss Air's crash as a suicide and to find it logical to interpret Egypt Air's crash as a suicide"
Look at the facts. Tell me just one tiny little fact in the SR111 or TWA800 fact, which seriously points towards a suicide. TWA800 exploded, SR111 burnt out, and MS990 plounged into the sea after some strange aircraft movements. The SR111 captain called "Pan, Pan, Pan" read the check list, asked for landing in Halifax and the MS990 captain prayed to god. Hmmm, let's me think a little bit.
The MS990 captain had personal problems. This was proven and nobody can deny it. Now, evem the most religious person can just go mad for a second. Many religious people from different religions do things, which have nothing more to do with religion.
That said I will repeat it once again: MS990 MIGHT have been a suicide. It was PERHAPS a suicide. There are evidences that CAN be interpretated as suicide. The FAA actually said, it was the most reasonable answer. But PERHAPS there is another solution. I wasn't there, you weren't there nobody on this list was there. I know, you don't want to believe it. To say now, that SR111 could also have been a suicide isn't the right way to prove the innocence of the MS990 captain.
Enough said, the topic was somehow completely different...
