He also said a big oil slick originally thought to come from the plane probably also came from a ship, though fuel slicks detected were likely from the jet because the fuel was of a type not used by seagoing vessels
Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.
Just underscores how fluid situations like a catastophic event are.
Apparently they're focussing in on the pitots. Can only imagine the nightmare in the middle of the ocean in an airliner if they go.
The whole thing just doesnt add up, even when struck by lightining, there is still hardly any chance that an aircraft would just "disappear" from radar contact.. Even if it came unstuck in mid air it wouldn't have just disappeared.. RIP to all those involved, I hope an explanation is found, but I can't see that happening
I was told today that bodies had been found, anyone else heard this?

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
they have recovered some part now and 17+ bodies
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Is it feasible that the plane broke up before impact with the water? could that explain why it just 'dissappeared' off of all radar screens? E.g. Hit by lightning/extreme turbulence/some other factor causing a hole in the fuselage which then resulted in the breakup of the entire aircaft due to its speed? Or am i talking nonsense?
I'd say it's a bit more than feasible. I'd say the debris field would tend to indicate it broke up well before hitting the water. Lightning and turbulence alone wouldn't do it, though.
Thats a massive claim.
More likely that something just managed to ignite the fuel tank and that was the cause of it blowing up in the air. May have even been the predicted lightning strike.
