Read the detail about the "trailing smoke" in the paper this morning. Also stated that the plane reportedly rolled twice before hitting the ground.

Seems like the viable possibility of a malicious act may still be on the table.

Everything should be on the table until the investigation rules it out.

Trailing smoke and/or fire, if true, sounds pretty ominous...

Complex automation systems , need experienced pilots to know how to manually intervene in a bad situation. having a problem at 8,000 feet allows far less reaction time then at 35,000 feet to work out a solution.

Input sensors giving bad information to automation flight systems , need skilled pilots to take over.

Not something that Boeing (obviously) can be saying out loud.....But they have to be praying to gawd this turns out to be a terrorist attack.
