I have found myself, just as you wrote, consumed.

And low IQ conspiracy nuts are about the only people who even bother with the ‘news’ anymore. This incident just reenforced that for me. The number of inept ‘experts’ that networks put on now, is ridiculous. Does CNN even have any actual reporters anymore? I mean… A ‘reporter’ that does something other than just read the same news wire that everybody else reads, but pretends he came up with it? I get the feeling that most people in the news biz would have a hard time understanding how to change a tire, let alone understand a multi million dollar aircraft.

Could a Stuxnet like virus have taken control of all electronic systems fooling system displays? The time the virus activated could have been 12 minutes before the Co-pilot signed off OK GOOD NIGHT. Stopping oxygen to the cabin would buildup CO2, causing increased drowsiness on a late night flight. Rising to 45k ft and depressurizing the cabin would have caused death by cold and suffocation. Descending quickly to 25Kft was just overkill to make sure G Forces finishes off anyone still alive. It would also cause a negative pressure in the cabin assisting the planes flooding when in the Ocean. Using navigation point the virus directed the plane to the deepest part of the Indian Ocean. When the fuel was close to empty the virus could have dropped the plane to lowest speed and altitude the apply air breaks and reverse engines dropping the plane flat on the Ocean with minimum damage. Lowering the landing gear half way and deploying the air turbine before impact with the water would help it sink quickly by puncturing the body without expelling baggage etc. This Virus would require an exact copy of the 777 systems to build and only useful for 777’s. If true this would be an act of true EVIL, something the world is known to have too much of.

Excellent fact & history based riff. One thing I would add is that CNN is to airports what ESPN is to bars. Plus both locales provide captive audiences. Dan

why no one states this simple fact is beyond me.

I believe we, journalists included, are not getting the full story which the Malaysians &/or the CIA or other gov’t entities already know.
