737 max8 on fire?

Here's another take on the crash.

From Red State.


In a war or disaster, the first reports are often wrong or conflicting.

In the case of the Ethiopian Airlines crash of the 737 Max 8, there are two very different reports. The first is that the loss of control that crashed the plane and killed all onboard was related to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (“MCAS”) system that tragically appears to have caused the Lion Air crash last year. Indeed, early analysis indicates a similar pattern to the Lion crash indicating a struggle between the aircraft and crew.



Yet the other report is the statements of several witnesses on the ground, as reported by Reuters, who reported loud noises, smoke streaming from the aircraft, as well as clothing and papers escaping from the plane before it crashed.

1. The reported ''clothing and papers'' debris trail should be provable...........

"Yet the other report is the statements of several witnesses on the ground, as reported by Reuters, who reported loud noises, smoke streaming from the aircraft, as well as clothing and papers escaping from the plane before it crashed."

2. The Ethiopians and the French BEA will get to the bottom of this

Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile

Aside from the early eyewitness reports, there has been no further information about fire, papers, etc. In fact, those early reports were also accompanied by cautions that eyewitness reports were unreliable.

If you believe eyewitness reports, you believe that TWA 800 was shot down by a missile.

3. The Ethiopians couldn't find their own asses with both hands. The French are well equipped for this

and even then often call on the US NTSB, but usually get through it on their own.
expecting anything accurate from the Ethiopians is a joke in itself.

6. yea? how is this at all relevant? "Ethiopian Airlines" isn't doing the accident investigation, nor

are they equipped to. Neither is their shitty government. Why the hell do you think they called in the French to assist?
Your comment lacks any point and is completely irrelevant.

7. Ethiopia has not relinquished control of the investigation

Officials with France’s Bureau d’Enquêtes et d’Analyses, which has extensive experience analyzing crashes in Europe, said that work to retrieve information from the flight data recorder of the Boeing 737 Max 8 has begun in coordination with the Ethio­pian investigation team.

President Trump spoke by telephone with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Friday to again express his condolences and underscore the United States’ commitment to work with Ethio­pian and international civil aviation authorities on the investigation. Eight Americans were among the 157 killed in the crash.

5. what a stretch...

" Not to be missed is China, which wants a worldwide market for their ‘737-killer’ Comac C-919, and would profit immensely from any tarnishing of Boeing’s reputation, and they helped lead the cry to ground the planes. "

...nah...

...make a crappy plane and they'll fall from the sky...
