I AM SEEING NIN AND QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE LIVE IN LIKE FOUR DAYS I CANT EVEN
not really an aviation expert but I know a fair bit about planes - there are pretty much no mechanical failures on a 777 that can cause a plane to go down in a matter of minutes without time for the pilots to send a distress signal. 777s are designed to fly comfortably on only one engine and even a double engine failure will not cause a plane to drop out of the sky from cruising altitude; it will glide a fair distance as it loses altitude and will not lose auxiliary power to the radio, this can be powered passively by an external turbine.
the only other self-contained cause of a crash would be decompression causing the pilots and passengers to lose oxygen and pass out; at a worst case scenario the plane would have continued to fly on autopilot on its given flight path until running out of fuel, in which case it would have been detected in chinese airspace by its onboard radar.
the only other options and the most likely in my opinion would be a mid-air collision, the plane being shot down (perhaps accidentally by a military exercise), or a hijacking. it seems especially suspicious that the plane has not been located in the ocean; if the plane had broken apart on impact with the ocean, the wreckage would still be very visible even to radar, but if the plane had disintegrated at 35,000 ft the wreckage would be spread out over a very wide area and hard to locate.
i would overall strongly suspect that the plane encountered a mid-air explosion, considering what we know about the crash and what i know about the 777.
seriously hope I’m wrong and everybody is safe, my thoughts with all those on the flight and their loved ones
have I told you about my favorite Koschei is a dork headcanon? in order to impress Theta he decided to learn more about other cultures and picked on of Theta’s (unread) books to do so. Unfortunately they were not sorted so he grabbed a fiction one, and to this day he believes that he was reading Histories of some culture and that the planet in question actually exists
obviously you havent seen the snake hips
