    ".....and then all three individual pieces of the plane on the ground were hit by three separate asteroids over a period of 7 seconds. The survivors that did manage to get out were transported to the hospital that was then blown to bits by a an oxygen leak mixed with a gas line rupture. An employee of the hospital lit a cigarette in a closed off part of the hospital. The final survivor did manage to escape the hospital but was then struck immediately by an airplane that fell out of the sky."

    Why did the plane disintegrate in 3 sections? Was it because the wind hit ground first?

    I actually didn’t read the title of this video, I just accidentally clicked on it. The entire time I was watching it up until I saw the casualty report I thought that the pilot was going to pull off some major stunt and save everybody. Then it said 100 people died and I was like OK.

    The smoothness at which Haynes and the others landed 232 has never been duplicated in a simulator.
    A 14 year old boy from Wyoming claims to have opened a door and jumped just prior to impact....called the Bugs Bunny Maneuver.
    Many feel he did not actually jump, but he had 'road rash' that suggests he was outside the plane at some point suggesting he was ejected during the crash but basically walked away.

    12:50 I was wondering if things like those existed. They would have isolated the damaged parts of the System. The aft rudder would have been blocked or flapped around uncontrolably, but at least all the other control surfaces would have still worked.
    I am honestly I a bit confused why they had none to begin with. Murphys law applies. At the control surfaces all 3 hydraulic networks meet, so that is the ideal place to have damage disable all of them.
