New pieces of information regarding the crash of the Russian Airbus A321 emerge every day. The official cause of the crash is still unknown, but there are many speculations.
Former chairman of the International Federation of Airline Pilots Association (IFALPA) Accident Analysis Committee revealed that the plane might have been hijacked. Dale Leppard concluded this on the basis of the aircraft behavior.
Typical behavior of a hijacked plane occurred during the flight. The plane changed its speed and course, which could indicate that someone was trying to crash the plane.
His expert opinion is supported by 45 years of experience in aircraft accident investigations. He also agrees with others who claim that a bomb was located somewhere on the plane.
Besides the fact that the plane started to fall apart even before it hit the ground, bodies found miles away from the crash site also support this claim.
217 passengers and seven crew members died when the Russian plane crashed into the Sinai Peninsula.
Using satellite data, the U.S. officials explained that a sudden flash indicates that an explosion happened during the flight. This explosion could have been caused by a bomb or a ruptured fuel tank.
Based on a report from the Russian news service Tass, objects which did not belong to the plane were located at the crash site. Further analysis will reveal their origin.
ISIS tried to take the responsibility for the plane crash by stating that this was their way to get back at Russia for their military actions in Syria.
However, there is no serious evidence to support such claims, and even the Egyptian authorities stated that ISIS was unable to do that.
