back in 1990, i was 6. I went up to see the captain on a 747 between hong kong and london. sat in the pilots seat, even played with the yolk. of course it was set to auto pilot at the time.... i still remember asking the flight attendant to see the captain.

to think what would happen now if i did the same.
you wouldn't be 6 and the question you'd ask the trolley dolly wouldn't have anything to do with the captain.

It wouldn't be the first commercial plane to be shot down in error or because it was in the wrong place.

Not sure what you mean. The security breach happened after 9/11.  I would call it good journalism - it's right on point.


yes it happened after Sept 11, ACA was trying to discredit the pilot -  not necessary at this time.  Gutter journalism.

interestingly many reports claim people have been able to call mobile phones of people on board that have rung out.

surely everyone turns their phones off when on an international flight... if not to follow the rules but to save battery life and credit.

lets say they did get through, and the phones were ringing... surely this would point to it landing/crashing on land not water.

From 6 miles up you would be lucky to have bacteria survive



Dave, if you could put a 2 dollar bet on, my guess would be internal bomb, they found air france in the atlantic in 5 miles of deep water......this has just vaporised

I leave my phone on - but thats irrelevant.

Apparently when the phone is on global roaming, the foreign phone towers will recognise the phone number being called even if the phone is off or airplane mode

the malacca straits is the busiest shipping route in the world, it's densely populated with ships so to speak.  If there was a bomb something would have been seen or heard.

If you ask me, the guy deserved the discrediting. He allowed a major security breach.
Pilot behaviour is one of the aspects the investigators are interested in.

I'm with goober - I'm voting for the bomb theory.
