Ahh I hate to read stuff like this
It is very late arriving if it was just a radar blip I fear the worst!!
Anyone know whom hates the French these days or is anyone western a target??
Or just as (if not more) likely it's an accident...there is this post 9/11 fashion of immediately thinking terrorism e.g. that steam pipe explosion in NY when every news channel was desperately hoping it was a terrorist attack!
I doubt very much anyone hoped that was an attack.
i just caught a snippet on the radio something along the lines of
the captain had been in touch by satellite reporting heavy turbulence.
now i caught the tail end of the report and i know they definitely mentioned
satellite, which is odd. so there is some hope.
Planes get struck by lightning all the time, but it shouldn't do any harm to vital systems as they're all shielded. It's basically a flying Faraday cage anyway.
