Re-Ordere ACARS Messages

Having kept a close eye on a.net forums, I have noticed that two pilots who regularly post sane comment about this issue have done a lot of work to try and figure out what may have happened.


One poster (Mandala499) who is probably the most sane guy there, has done a good job of trying to figure out the timeline of the ACARS messages and re-order them according to their respective time stamps.

I have shamelessly (sorry Mandala) copied his good work here in order that someone on PPRuNe may make more sense (or gain a better insight) as to what went on at the time these messages were sent?

This is the list reordered...
