I haven't heard a likely explanation yet, I don't believe in engine failure, because that should be easy (Yes, famous last words) to handle: Just settle down somewhere around, they were still in the...

The rules about not being allowed to act on, or retransmit these recordings are idiotic in my mind. As mentioned, taking photos in public is somewhat similar: its a sensation that is easily...

Reading the comments on AVHerald, I got curious: what kind of braking action would that runway have? People are slipping on what looks like ice/compacted snow. I bet landing on that is a bit...

Seems they misidentified the launch area though? I believe the missile need to have come from the sand-bag-like base (as was pointed out very early) in the _right_ of the image, not to the left as...

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.

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...

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?

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!
