Missing #AirAsia Flight QZ8501: terrorists only attack on sunny days and other theories
CNN aviation analyst Mary Schiavo give dexpert opinion on Air Asia flight QZ8501:
“At this point, given it was extremely bad weather, the chances of this being some sort of terrorist activity are very small because most terrorist activities take place in good weather.”
On Reddit, experts take a different view:
Did anyone else see this story and the first thing that went through your mind was “Again?”
It seems to defy statistical probability that 3 planes from the same region would meet with a bad end. It also defies rationality that someone would disappear this plane and use it in another false flag op 5 or 6 months down the road. But john q public lives in such a strong media force field, if the “official story” says it’s all a coincidence… most people would still believe it.
Other possibilities come to mind. Someone is testing their remote pilot override capabilities. Maybe at longer distances, or on an Airbus to see if they can takeover non-US built aircraft. There are always more possibilities though. Maybe there was someone special on board?
This is just the beginning of the story though. More information (and dis-information?) will come out with the passage of time. If this really was an accident, I’d expect them to locate some wreckage soon, as well as the black box flight data recorder.
A statement is made:
At a press conference following the development, AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandesissued a call against early speculation before making his own: “We have 1,000 flights a day and until we have the investigation we cannot make any assumptions as to what went wrong. All I can say is the weather in Southeast Asia is very bad at the moment.”
