I have begun to look forward to the day when it turns out that one of these significant “accidents” or terror events is as it is presented to us by the mainstream press. But this one is not it. In fact, after just a few days, as usual, the story has begun to leak like a sieve.
Firstly, remember that story about the pilot trying to break back into the cockpit with an axe? Well, it’s complete nonsense. This article shares the following:
When the flight crew does not respond to requests for entry, the door can also be unlocked by the cabin crew, by entering a two to seven-digit code (programmed by the airline) on the keypad, installed on the lateral side of the Forward Attendant Panel (FAP).
No axe needed. Just a two to seven digit code, set by the airline, known to the crew. Kinda blows the official story away right there.
But there’s more.
The A320 has a remote flying capability to prevent hijack events, and it cannot be overridden by the crew. So, the co-pilot could not have done this. It had to have been deliberately and executed remotely.
This same article shows how reference to escorting fighters was published and then redacted, amongst other interesting threads. Did they shoot out the control flaps close to the crash site to stop the remote control system preventing the crash?
I’m not saying I know what happened or why, but the official story does not hold water. Here is one view about why.
