Or maybe, like the last Air France airliner to go down, there isn't even time to put out a proper mayday as they're fighting to control the plane (through their own fault or others), but it only breaks up when it hits the floor.
That particular plane had three experienced crew on board, and crashed because someone was holding a control stick back for ages and nobody ever noticed. But it didn't get to put out a mayday, the onboard systems weren't transmitting enough data to highlight the problem to anyone else, and even when the blackboxes were recovered (how long later?), it still wasn't 100% clear quite WHY what happened happened.
Rather than turn everything into a terrorist story, which is just boring when you live in a country that's suffered terrorism for a long longer than the US latest overblown episode, how about we don't pot-shot at people's reputations?
And, to be honest, the whole link you post is really a non-story. Wow. I can remember going to a cabin on an aircraft and getting photos when I was a kid. Back then you could smoke on planes (probably still can in many countries - malaysia's laws? I'm not sure off-hand). But, no, fuck it, he has to be a terrorist to you?
Maybe it was a fucking crash.
Sad. Unfortunate. Unpredictable.
But doesn't do precisely what terrorism is supposed to do - PUT SO MUCH TERROR INTO YOU THAT YOU THINK EVERYTHING IS MORE TERRORISM.
