Were any of them intentional derailings because the conductor was depressed and wanted to commit mass murder?

Does it matter? 

 

And even then I think unintentional failures are more worrying.

The communications were severed intentionally right? (Or at least that's the suspicion).  I guess another question I have is that why is how is that even an option?

 

We’d have to find an engineer to answer that. 

 

I wouldn’t assume it’s easy. Maybe that sort of thing is an oversight but I wouldn’t think so. It may be because they need to be able to shut certain things down as part of an emergency (like fire or something)

We've had more Amtrak trains derailing than planes crashing in the US lately. 😶

I mean, it matters in the sense that it's a scary thought that one pilot can kill several hundred people if they simply decide they want to.  Same as it matters that any asshole can go buy an AR and kill a building full of people and we can't seem to put simple measures in place to prevent that either.

Well my coworker who was a pilot says a pilot can't depressurize a cabin in order to kill the passengers (There are limits to how much he can pressurize and depressurize), unless he punched a hole in the fuselage (But then he couldn't re-pressurize).  More likely scenario is he killed the copilot in the ****pit and the passengers and rest of flight crew were unaware they were flying off in the wrong direction.

 

(by the way ****pit???? really???? censor filters need adjusting).

We should ban planes

But then only criminals would have them.

So ultimately, it's one guy's theory.  As if he's the only guy that studied the radar data.  And then filled in about a million blanks out of thin air in the process.

They might be statistically much safer, but the terror factor of impending doom and almost zero chance you are going to survive a bad crash may be why some people would prefer trains or even cars.

Perhaps there should be a rule of at least two people in the ****pit at all times.  If the pilot or copilot needs to leave the ****pit, then a stewardess has to at least be in the ****pit until they return.   This would at least make it very hard to lock out the pilot/copilot.

I agree.  My imagination has no problem imagining how it would happen.  The plane shudders and tilts towards eventual meeting with the ground... but takes entirely too long to get there.  Passengers are left with an unreasonable amount of time to contemplate death before meeting it.  That time is just prolonged misery, that’s the part that makes it especially horrible.

Frankly, one of my worst fears is a deep ocean crash, because even if you strike gold and survive impact, your reward is likely being eaten by a shark, or slowly dying if hunger and thirst on a flotation device.

 

Not many worse ways to go in this world

Hell, if you survive the initial impact, chances are you might drown just trying to get out of the wreckage.  

 

I know stats show you are more likely to die in a car wreck, but I think the mental block there is that in a car, with your hand on the wheel you always think in your head you have the power to change an outcome, where as in a plane, once you are past the point of no return, there is little to do but make peace with what is about to happen.   

 

If anyone wants to terrorize themselves, you can go on youtube and listen to recovered blackbox recordings from plane crashes.

Interesting article. But it’s mostly speculation...

 

 

Keep in mind this is just someone’s opinion and not the findings of any investigative body, In fact, so far most of the official investigations have found that the captains state of mind was the exact opposite of what was portrayed in this article.  Also while it is true that the captain had a simulation of flight that ended in the south india ocean, the FBI studied the track and the jist of their findings was that the track was different.  Also, the plane turned toward planned emergency landing sites (and towards radar and military bases that (had there been competent people making those stations) could have easily tracked and intercepted a suspected hijacked plane.  If the goal was to get lost in a suicide spiral going right over the south china sea where their is no radar would be more viable.
