Update: I decided the body of this entry didn’t belong on the front page and moved it here instead (original entry). This is dark material and it is time for the blog to turn back towards the light. I am keeping the page up at its new location for two reasons:

1 – It serves as a first experiment of the Cover It Live system;

2 – I remain extremelly curious to find out what actually happened on board flight 447 and I assume others might, too. This is not morbid curiosity but the pilot in me tackling very practical considerations and wanting to know the technical facts.
