LIGHTNING
Can someone tell me where this LIGHTNING STRIKE cause has been proven or even half proven? To me it is obfuscation to deflect cause away from airline and Russia. If a lighting strike can down a plane, then the plane is not properly constructed. I have been struck too many times to mention including a ball of St Elmo Fire rolling down the entire cabin front to back with no ill effects.
A straw poll of a few friends this morning of recent crashes shows that whoever gets the info out first wins

Concorde - blamed on Continental Airways
AF 447 blamed on icing of pitot tubes
BMA Kegworth blamed on new instruments
Lionair and ET blamed on MCAS. - yes I know the jury is out but I am really looking forward to the true story to emerge in due course. I could be wrong but I have cited human factors and lack of training as major causes since the beginning of these discussions. And you won't fix that with a quickie software fix.
Happy Flying
