    I honestly never have seen big commercial planes nose-diving like that so was curious where else it happened is all...
    I am saying you should not jump to conclusions. There are experts who will do that. Its fine to speculate on causes, but with so little to go on, its hard to rule out one cause over another.

    Yes, the wings could have fallen off as well...

    This is a discussion forum, we are allowed to speculate, that's the whole point of discussion...

    he's not jumped to any conclusions

    but if he did, so what? It's a discussion forum. The more jumping to conclusions the better as far as I am concerned.

    But you said...how can that even happen without being deliberate? Almost sounded like you are ruling out other possibilities. Apologies if that is not what you meant. It could be deliberate, it may be something else. Right now your guess is as good as mine.

    I'm just saying jumping to conclusions without a sound basis to come to that conclusion is not a very ideal form of reasoning. Lets not blow this out of proportions.

    But since we are on that topic, I would like to hear what you think led to this crash.

    Here is a video of the plunge from another angle:

    Data from flight24 in table format. It seems to show the pilot somehow managed to wrestle back control of the plane for a short period and the plane was climbing before it was plunging again into a terminal dive:

    I know, but forums are not usually places of reason. Which is a good thing.

    The cause? Design failure looking most likely.

    That plummet, level out and plummet again trajectory is weird. Kinda feels like a cockpit struggle scenario. I guess we at least can say the wings didn’t fall off.
