737 down in Iran

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There’s a purported video on twitter. It’s dark and you can’t even tell it’s a plane, but something in the air is on fire as it falls towards the ground. It explodes on impact. 
 

and there it is.

So then Iran says, "Oh yeah...we'll recall the 737-Max 8"

The plane just crashed, but they knew it was due to technical problems? Seems legit.

I guess it being on fire in the air is a technical problem, though.

Suspicious intel from the intel crab

I mean it could be legit. Or not. If that video was of the plane crashing then it definitely seemed to be on fire.

Plane was on fire. Guy had his camera out. Something went down to cause that guy to start filming.

They really want all their military installations leveled? China and Russia must be promising a lot

That could probably do it. How audible would something like that be from distance?

I know this is beside the point but I really hate that news outlets distribute stuff that's unconfirmed. Especially in situations like this. And I understand why they feel they have to (sometimes) but it just muddies everything up. Anyway. I'm going to go read the dog thread now and try not to think about all this.

Those damn undertrained pilots again. If only they had basic airmanship /s

 

Early reporting looks like Iranian air defense has an itchy trigger finger

NTSB didn't think it was nonsense and neither did boeing when it committed to redesigning the cowling. 

or do you mean speculation as to the cause of this particular incident?  this is the internet, sir.  it's what we do here.

Uncontained engine failures on 737s usually don't render the aircraft completely uncontrollable.

Iranian AAA Commander: I wish that was an American plane. We have all these missiles, think of the glorious victory if we could just fire one.

Freaked out newb AAA soldier: One fired, Sir!

Iranian AAA Commander: Damn it.
