It's a top story on the BBC, obviously: three major incidents in 4 months is pretty disastrous for general trust in airlines.

Hola from Barcelona! This is my first ever forum post from the city. I have no idea what to ask here: maybe it would be interesting to see if Evan Davis would make a great replacement for Paxman on Newsnight.

Gracias!

Plenty of speculation in this thread. We must wait for an official investigation which will either come up with an answer or not. I am already alarmed that the crash happened in a area of great tension. Even after the absolute truth if found, other theories are going to circulate widely for a long ...

One of the questions that need answering before determining the cause is how contact was lost. We would have to look into satellite imagery at the time of the crash, and radio contact.

I simply have no more trust in Mugabe: he caused a lot of unemployment and rendered the Zimbabwe dollar worthless. The $100,000,000,000,000 banknote might attract curious eyes, but it reflects how people's savings in the country literally disappeared.
