I played with this last evening. Using a 6 inch telescope, I can see airliners flying at cruise altitude 30-40 miles away, in better quality than the alleged ISIS video. I can even take pictures...

If they can film the explosion at all (which most certainly can't be done with a cell phone and requires either a serious video camera with a 300 mm + telephoto lens, or a telescope), they can handle...

My point is not that technical complexity of such a job is beyond the reach of a modern day terrorist, it's mainly that, in this situation, cooking up functional remote detonation is what Russians...

Isn't it standard procedure, in the event an actual design flaw is discovered, simply to issue an airworthiness directive? I did a bit of googling and it seems that revoking a type certificate for an...

Good eye. I believe that's 2009 crash of Azza Transport flight 2241 in the Emirates, and yes, it's a 707.

Life jacket canisters contain gas at lower pressure (CO2 liquifies at 900 psi, diving tanks are compressed to 3000+) and they have a much higher safety margin because the weight of the canister is...

Not sure about exploding poop, but there was an incident in the 80s that involved a guy flushing a live hand grenade in an aircraft lavatory. The explosion punctured the APB and severed two out of...

We have difficulties explaining the outcome either way. It's hard for a bomb in the passenger compartment to cause VS failure directly, and it's also unlikely that standalone HS/VS failure would lead...

Before or after the empennage breaks off of the fuselage?

If it's before, it's not trivial for any object exiting the hole to hit the tail cone, since there's no straight line from one to the...

There's a problem with this line of reasoning. If it's a blowout panel and it's working correctly, what, if anything (short of collision with another aircraft), could cause the tail cone to be...

You realize that the VS in tail wreckage pics is bent at a 90 degree angle, right?

So, we're missing the rudder, back one third or so of the VS (the section that was closest to the rudder), and...

OK, I've realized my mistake. I was assuming that the tail cone is upright (and I guess there's no reason it should be). But it's actually on its side, and we're looking at what used to be the top,...

By the way, can anyone find locations of those stations?

A check of FR24 map shows several airports within range from the crash site. Sharm El Sheikh is pretty far. Eilat is only 100 km away, but...

A few points to help with interpretation.
