On the first page of the Long Island Newsday, that Continental 737-500 is taking off with our harried troops held in China. That's got to be a heck of an ad for Continental.
(Personally though, it would have been more symbolic to have a American Airlines jet whisk them back to Guam. )
But seriously though... what do you think happened? The airflow theory is valid scientifically but at the same time, I'm an American who doesn't believe everything he reads without caution. Of course both superpowers will place cause on the other. Any theories or thoughts?
