Distance to horizon if you are at 10000 ft is about 122 miles. Seems to be less than that to cyprus in this case, so with a nicely placed receiver there (think mountain+tower) it should be no...

Was it MLAT or not? If MLAT, I would say they were military in nature. Otherwise, test flights? Though thats a lot of aircraft for some testing....

I think they were spying on us here in Sweden!...

The results from the simulalor tests scare me though. Seems no pilot was perfect (understandable) but a large percentage also did downright bad!

I saw something interesting in the FDR factual report: the vibration values for Eng 1 are clearly higher than for 2 long before it goes boom. They go above (I presume unitless scale) the value of 1.0...

We had some interesting weather phenomenon here yesterday, with what looked like fog or fine snow but was apparently called "ice smoke" (in Swedish anyway), never heard of that term before, and we...

Not a pilot, but I noticed that Iv'e never seen pilots talk about an incident after the fact on video. It felt very odd.

I remember being met by dogs when arriving in Frankfurt from Caracas about ten years ago. I I just assumed it was drug-related.

I also saw the funniest/most disgusting thing in Venezuela customs....

Ok, so lets go with this scenario. For example, spoofing GPS is clearly possible since even Wikipedia lists several suspected and/or confirmed events. But the airplane has an IRU, and that I'm almost...

I will say this, a lot of interesting "unfixable" problems have been found the last few years for computers in general. As a programmer the "rowhammer" exploit amuses me a lot, for example. Or the...

Thats a valiant effort, any idea what sort of exploded? I guess it was something in the tug and not from the aircraft. They were lucky there wasn't a bigger explosion. Thinking oxygen tanks, that...

So the hack consists of controlling the pilots? Spoof ADS-B (which is possible as far as I understand) and make the pilots go wherever you want.

Although, turns are never part of TCAS resolutions...

Crash test dummies are very stiff compared to humans, you can see the dummy keeping its body inside the plane using its HEAD only. Would you have the power in your neck muscles for that? I doubt it.

What happened here? Afaik intercepts usually allow the interceptee to just keep flying straight. Were they not allowed into france/switzerland (didnt quite manage anyhow) in this case?

The usual question, do they even have any possibility of using, what looks like, parachutes? I seem to recall there was a "escape hatch" in some test airplanes, but in this one?

Id "like" to see these birds take on bigger drones with carbon fibre blades?

I do not think this is a good idea.

That is the most stupid....

Can you not clearly see that dot is actually moving WAY too fast for a drone, it also moves _past_ the rocket!

It is a fly or other insect, very close to the camera!

I was surprised when a neighbor started flying a atec 122 zephyr, learning that it was an ultralight. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATEC_122_Zephyr_2000

Apparently also fitted with a BRS!...

I thought it was supposed to be super-dangerous to be bombed with water... at least that's what media told us when we brought in planes from abroad for a forest fire.

Couldn't CPDLC logging-on be made automatically? In my mind such a system becomes much more useful, specifically as a side-channel for lost comms, if the pilots didn't need to do anything except...

Well, is not what the swedish article I read previously said. That one said that the plane lifted off 40 minutes after the call, having been already standing on the runway. Much more likely.
