“The fact that we are unable to find any debris so far appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet,”
I disagree....A midair breakup would leave a debris field measured in miles, ( think of throwing a bag of popcorn from a auto going 60 MPH), however a nosedive into the ocean could compress the metal into a ball taking most everything to the bottom.. Air France 447 left very little floating debris ......IMHO
You have it right. The article has it entirely wrong.
what about a nuclear blast vaporizing it all
