Ripple effects?.I never said they were fired by Trump. Although his half-witted plays to his domestic base can have international ripple effects, as we've seen.
Which is precisely what Obama's Iran deal was all about. We're now closer than ever to them returning to their development process- thank you America!The ripple effect is that the international community has finally realised that this Iranian regime must never be allowed to have access to or develop nuclear weapons. (Although sensible people have known this for some time.)
I think 4 is important to try and prevent something similar happening again? Or at least to assist passengers in deciding whether or not they want to fly a particular route or airline.(4) whenever an airliner is involved, there will be the usual crowd casting aspersions onto their decision to fly. All these comments are made post-event. Always. 20/20 is the best eyesight.
There can be any degree of autonomy. A poor model will have centralised control, whilst at the very loose end you have a system operating totally on it’s own. Centralised systems will be attacked, with the aim being to break their system down to local level control. That makes it less likely that aircraft will suffer co-ordinated attacks. Once the C&C is broken, individual units can be engaged. There was a tale yesterday to the effect that the missile batteries had been ordered to autonomous control, presumably as they expected an attack on their C&C.Ripple effects?.
I'll bet you don't know why the SAM site lit up/activated on this airliner and not any others.
Would appreciate if someone here can shed light on how a SAM installation works. To what degree are SAM sites autonomous?
I’m not sure that it will show all that much. It certainly won’t tell us anything about whether the launch was accidental or not. It was on a standard SID. The missile site operators should have seen that numerous times, unless the battery had just been emplaced. They’ve certainly told the US that there is a valuable target nearby...though I expect they already knew that.Hopefully the orange box can be downloaded, analysed and an official report promulgated, and the SAM site investigated. The Canadians are suggesting they are not buying the accidental missile theory.
Possibly nothing. jb747 said it was on the usual departure SID (so don't wander off jb) and also the Major's link to the flightradar24 historical data, (hell even flightradar24 knew and tracked it departing, (actually even from taxying! when I played it back the same day) tehran airport).I wonder what made this aircraft appear different to the others?
That was my point. It looks just like a normal flight. Except it wasn’t.Possibly nothing. jb747 said it was on the usual departure SID (so don't wander off jb) and also the Major's link to the flightradar24 historical data, (hell even flightradar24 knew and tracked it departing, (actually even from taxying! when I played it back the same day) tehran airport).
So possibly the only "difference" was at the SAM site...the new 06:00am shift starting?
