New Flight 9268 Photo Shows Major Charring on the Exterior of the Fuselage

UPDATE: Airline says “external activity” causing massive structural failure of aircraft is responsible for crash.


I’m not sure exactly what this implies, but I found a new image of the wreckage of Metrojet Flight 9268 that’s a little troubling.

This photo found over at Tass news agency shows investigators examining a piece of the wreckage which appears to show some major charring on the exterior of the fuselage near an emergency escape hatch. (click on images for larger view)

The charred remains on the ground, the wide-spread debris field, the engines having been detached from the wings… all of these things indicate the plane experienced a massive explosion which caused it to crash.

What is news is how the CIA asset Miklaszewski goes on and on trying to squash any suggestion that a missile took out the plane. But pay close attention to what he supposedly rules out… and what he doesn’t.
