It's a stretch, but stranger things have happened. I'm not sold either way.

How many years was the speculation for AF447 til the DFDR was found? Hopefully the DFDR will be recovered in less years it took to find the Titanic.

The max operating altitude limitation of 43,100 has to do with pressurization and cabin differential. It has NOTHING to do with how high the airplane can physically fly. Any professional pilot knows that.

well, he’s not on this thread. But I’m failing to understand what you’re trying to say. Was the author implying that anything above 43k FT had anything to do with cabin pressurization?

interesting. I’ll have to dig for that. This was the first time I heard that the aircraft had an in flight fire two weeks prior to the disappearance.

I “trying to say“ exactly what I said. The author said that no 777 can fly above 43,100 feet. He used that false assumption to discredit the radar track that showed the accident aircraft at above 50,000 feet at one point.

The flight manual limit of 43,100 is simply a cabin pressurization limitation. The airplane is capable of flying much higher than 43,100. Claiming that the radar track altitude data was impossible because a flight manual altitude limitation was exceeded is absolutely incorrect and it immediately proves that the author is not a professional pilot, and has very limited or no aerospace/ commercial aviation knowledge. He’s a blogger with decent google search skills, He has no real world knowledge and as such should not be trusted to provide accurate information on this subject.

Just FYI.
