well, you can also have a very hard landing that's followed by landing gear collapse, resulting in fuel tank or fuel lines being ruptured, fuel leaking out and being ignited by sparks or engines heatOA940 wrote:Also I don't get why we have to assume immediately it's the plane's fault. Once again people are jumping to conclusions. Just because there are spare parts issues doesn't mean the design is bad
Earlier I've posted a quote I found on twitter that said "electrical system failure". Don't know how trustworthy is the person though.
Yeah there's so much conflicting information. Also It could be a hard landing but I guess I'm not sure it could cause such a large blaze.
There's a livestream on YouTube that seems to be updating quickly regarding all the different stories emerging (tho I'm not sure how accurate it is) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Chagz9dzXH8
