    Info from FlightAware identifies the aircraft as a Boeing 737-800, registered SU-GCS with Star Alliance markings.

    Not sure which is right, because a related story on CNN identifies it as an A320.

    .......ANOTHER AIRLINER GONE MISSING. TERRORISM OR INFLIGHT BREAKUP? HERE WE GO AGAIN. INNOCENT SOULS LOST, THE MEDIA CIRCUS BEGINS AND EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

    IF IT IS TERRORISM.....THE GULITY MUST BE MADE TO PAY SEVERLY!!!IF IT IS AN INFLIGHT BREAK-UP, THEN WE ADD IT TO THE LIST OF AIRBUS TAILS COMING OFF THE AIRCRAFT FOR NO REASON?

    WHAT WILL IT BE?

    MAY THEY REST IN PEACE........:mad:......GOD DAM IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Over open water and the middle of their night in a full coverage area too. Hmmmmm.
    Yea, FR24 ^^^ lists it's Reg and flight track as SU-GCC/2088 an A-320. Regardless, something's amiss. BOOM!?

    Yea, over the very Deepest water at that end of the sea too. I wonder who might work at that Paris airport(CDG)? On CNN now, 56 pax + 10 crew aboard.

    Being fair, the only two instances I know of Airbus tail separation are the American A300 at New York and the Air France A330 enroute from Rio to Paris. The A300 incident occurred because of overly aggressive (and unnecessary) repetitive opposing rudder inputs that stressed the airframe beyond its design limits. The A330 was apparently intact and functioning properly when it impacted the water, which sheared the vertical fin off. Any others I'm unaware of.

    The AA A-300 is the only one that failed without external help. Rich has strong feelings that an airframe should be strong enough to withstand stupid pilot inputs. While that would be nice, when mating idiot-proof airplanes to idiots, the idiots will always win.

    I WROTE A LOT ABOUT THE AIRBUS TAIL HERE A FEW YEARS AGO. SOME OF THE FACTS THAT BOTHER ME IS .....FAA MANAGMENT BEFORE 2009 WAS IN THE POCKET OF AIRBUS. I KNOW SPECIAL TREATMENT WAS GIVEN AIRBUS AND INSTEAD OF A "PROPER" INVESTIGATION INTO THE JFK CRASH THEY SIMPLY BLAMED THE CO-PILOT..........WHEN AIRFRANCE WENT DOWN....FAA RETIRED MANAGEMENT LOBBIED THE FAA........YES ...WE KNOW THE PITOT TUBES ICED UP AND THE AUTO PILOT WENT OFF LINE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND THE PILOTS WERE CONFUSED ......BUT THE TAIL WAS FOUND 30 MILES AWAY.......

    MY PROBLEM WITH AIRBUS IS THAT CARBON FIBER / METAL CONNECT POINTS (6) HOLD THE TAIL ON .......THE NTSB CHAIR AT THAT TIME SAID AIRCRAFT TAILS CAN NOT TAKE SIDE LOADS......BRAVO SIERRA!....AIRBUS TAIL DESIGN NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT.......

    <<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<

    BUT IN THIS CASE IT SURE LOOKS LIKE TERRORISM HERE........FLYING ONE MINUTE GETTING READY TO LAND AND GONE FROM RADAR......THE NEXT.....JUST LIKE THE RUSSIAN EXPLOSION (THAT THEY WOULD NOT ADMIT TO)


    .....PERSONALLY I AM SICK AND TIRED OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS......WE HAVE NO LEADERS NOW.....NO ONE WANTS TO MAKE A DECISION........THE CARNAGE CONTINUES WHILE THE POLITICIANS SCRATCH THEIR ASSES AT MEETINGS.....

    THE B-52 SHOULD BE READY AS SOON AS THE DISGUSTING SICK BASTARDS THAT DID THIS ARE IDENTIFIED.....OR MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST ASKED THE ISREALI'S .....THEY KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON AND WERE THE BASTARDS ARE......

    FU AND I DO NOT MEAN FELIX UNGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "....BTW....an in flight breakup is exactly what showed up on radar....sudden turning left and right loss of ATC...contact. The fuselage would imploded killing everyone immediately....not enough time to feel pain or even have an idea what has happened....if anything death was quick and swift.....

    Now Isis will claim they did it probably through a airport/ ground worker who is an Islamic terrorist sympathizer ......asplinter group of these bastards....
    :mad:


    May they rest in peace,.....:(

    Just goes to prove. Let all those "refugees":rolleyes: into your country and this is what ya get. This is just the tip of the iceberg folks. We will be playin "Refugee Roulette" with flights here too with Oblahma's final attempts to destroy the USA. In a strange twist, Allegiant might become safer because even terrorists in the know, are afraid to fly on em.

    The tail was found floating. For it to drift only 30 miles in the 6 days it took to locate the rest of the wreckage is unusual because it should have drifted farther.
    The tail separated from impact forces which have been deemed to be unsurvivable. This isn't an engineering failure. If FAA's management being in Airbus' pockets does bother you, then also consider that EVERY major airframe manufacturer does the same thing, including Boeing (that little B-787 incident where the FAA claimed a gazillion man-hours from it's engineering review team before certification?)

    I respect your opinions even when we differ, and AF-447's tail strength is one thing we disagree on. On the other hand, concerning Airbus' first civilian airline, the A-300, we may not differ so much.

    Roger that EG.....the point here on this one is terrorism and a bomb on board based on the abrupt loss of ATC contact....

    Another tragedy. Whatever happened with this plane, the result was that once again innocent lives were abruptly cut short. :(

    Update from Reuters-
    "A senior U.S. Intelligence official familiar with U.S. capabilities in the region told NBC News that "phenomenology" (infrared and multispectral images) indicated strongly that there was an explosion on MS804. The cause remained unclear, the source said. The U.S. has what is described as a "persistent stare" on the region, which collects everything from sound waves through multispectral images to pressure. Officials from multiple U.S. agencies told Reuters, however, that a review of satellite imagery had not so far detected any sign of an explosion on board the flight."

    Hmm.... an explosion that wasn't an explosion?
