On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported on some conjecture about the cause of the Russian airliner that crashed in Egypt last Saturday. The article begins:
"Russia’s top aviation official dismissed an assertion by the airline involved in a passenger jet crash in Egypt that pilot error and technical defects could be ruled out as causes."
Let me understand this more clearly. A passenger jet flying at about 30000 feet suddenly blows up and someone still thinks it might be due to an error by one of the pilots? What do you suppose happened? Did one of the pilots accidentally press the "Self Destruct" button?
