.... Scientific proof should come from the deciphering of the black boxes. The Cockpit Voice Recorder should give a definitive answer to that question.

If hit by a missile, the CVR will probably not have recorded more than the letter B from Booooom.

Re: Crash Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 Tehran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

I checked the FR24 data for the same flight PS752 of these last days. There is a fair consistency between all these flights. Nothing pointing towards anything specific to the flight on 08JAN leading to the crash. Flight Path. Lat-Long coordinates no to scale. PS752 Flight Path Coord.png Consistent w...

Re: Crash Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 Tehran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

Flight path per FR24. Similar to previous UIA flights up until near the end where the data stopped being transmitted (green line and dot), 3 minutes after take-off. The red circle marks the crash site which is about 16km in a straight line from the last XPDR transmission. IKA airport in the bottom r...

With the same caveat as mentioned before: a NOTAM can be pulled (cancelled) in a matter of minutes, so this extensions doesn’t really mean anything in terms of an expectation. You are perfectly correct. And I can only hope that my statement did not mislead anyone into thinking that the B7M8-9 will ...

Yes I flew the same ADD-NBO but it was 3 days after the crash and on a (good?) old 738. Actually, I was to fly BRU-ZRH-NBO but because of the Belgia...

OO-SFH is already in AMM, flew there straight from HKG end of November.
