1- Airplanes, as well designed and aerodynamic as they are built are subject to incredible forces in flight.
2- Airplanes do get old. Most wind tunnel tests about their integrity are done with a certain number of flight factored in.
3- Total immaculate maintenance is necessary to keep them safe. Not all airlines do this. Especially if they are owned by countries like Trinidad or Iran.
4- ALL theories expressed here about why this particular accident happened hold water. To totally dismiss one is mega stupid, especially if one does it calling the other person dumb. You see what I mean? The very reaction speaks of one's lack of logic or purposeful and personally motivated condescension.
5- This thread and it's subject is not important enough to have a debate on. Starting one is personal assholery and enduring ass-hurt dating back to some other debate.
6- (1+2+3+4+5) = Frankie is the logical one in this unnecessary debate and you* are an asshole with a chip on your shoulder.
(* = Applies to all assholes in this thread who qualify via 4 & 5. You are welcome.)
Frankie, no one is arguing that aircraft are indestructible. They aren't. But no commercial aircraft has EVER experienced a complete fuselage failure like the one shown in the OP while in flight.
Do you understand now?
I think the young people enjoy it when I "get down," verbally, don't you?
