Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Read this in one of the forums when JT 610 crashed and now ET302 crashes in extraordinarily similar circumstances. "Death by Computer 189 people recently died in a tragic crash. The crew and passengers of JT610 never had a chance. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane had a new software in it. They called...

Re: 2 sisters kicked off Allegiant flight prevented from seeing dying father

Being a doctor all I can say is a "Panic attack" is an acute medical condition and if asked to I would never certify someone with such an acute episode to continue a flight.

Re: Russian military plane "Disappears from Radar"

Can an expert here enumerate possible non terror related cause(s) of sudden flight break up with fireball (if the presumed Sochi beach videos are true) that leaves no time for flight crew to convey distress? TWA 800 accident is the only one that comes to my mind which was non terror related. The oth...

Re: Russian military plane "Disappears from Radar"

No distress call from flight crew does imply sudden catastrophic event. Bomb theory would explain sudden disappearance from radar with no prior warning.

Re: LAMIA RJ85 crashes in Colombia

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKum4RTpDx4 ) the pilot after declaring a fuel problem accepts the controler's 7 min approx arrival time to VOR ( at 2.32 min into the recording ) and crashes 8.5 min later ( around 11.00 min into recording). Can't believe this !!

Re: LAMIA RJ85 crashes in Colombia

It seems that the anomalous flight plan was noticed by Bolivian authorities but the lady had no authority to stop the aircraft. Can I ask that who actually within a country's DGCA has the power to deny permission in such circumstances?
