Please for the love a god don't listen to CNN/MSNBC/FOX etcccc.. There is so much bull**** coming out there that is completely innacurate, they make **** up as they go all the time.  :angry:

 

airliners.net is alot better source because people have alot better understanding about aviation.

 

To me it seems like "pilot error" using VFR flight rules but that just my opinion.

Aerospace source:48 critical. The 2 deaths were 16 year old girls from China on their way to some kind of summer camp. Supposedly a lot of head injuries, which begs why if their belts were on (or were they?)

From what I'm hearing from aerospace sources that may not be the case.

People should always follow that advice. There are much more reputable and objective news channels, like Al Jazeera.

Incidents like this always remind me why I hate people and the media (usually, America's terrible news channels)

I mean you had CNN/MSNBC/FOX talking about the plane doing cartwheels, spinning, flipping, having it's wings ripped off etc all while showing a ****ing picture of the plane with both wings still intact the right way up. Come on it doesn't take a genius to realize the plane didn't cartwheel and flip over...

...

 

They were talking about the tail section of the plane, the part that was missing from the picture of the rest of the plane.

First fatal accident involving a 777, will be interesting to see what the cause is

That's the thing...when reports first started coming in they were talking about the wings.

Everytime an incident happens the American media proves just how ######ing incompetant they really are.

weird how this gets so much attention while the train crash that probably killed more than the total passenger count on the plane is generally getting ignored. 

 

Chances are the plane was hit with one of those special wind conditions that cause a dramatic loss of lift on landing even though modern airport radars are supposed to reduce the chance of them.

Wind Shear? Not likely, you would have heard an alarm go off at ATC if wind shear is detected.

No alarm means no wind shear.

If the airport/airplane had a radar for detecting wind shear, and if it detected it or detected it in time. yes 

 

The "short landing" could very well indicate a wind shear fall during landing.

First video of the actual crash has been released;

 

Incredible that the airplane fuselage managed to stay so well together after such a cart wheel in the air, and no further casualties...
