What a weird coincidence, if it is one.

Okay, conspiracy theories please. :alien:

Muslim nutters have infiltrated maintenance crews around the world, messing with systems and controls to cause lots of strange and sinister crashes.

Maybe they have also got into Windows Vista dev team.... :confused:

Age of aircraft + poorly paid maintenance crew = disaster waiting to happen

Maybe I was a bit hasty in starting this thread. A colleague said it the crash had just happened; but in fact it happened some hours ago, and the captain had radioed that he was having engine trouble.

I see this one's owned by a newbie as well. The Airline concerned was set up in 2000. Helios was apparently set up in 1999.

I wonder if they're buying cheap 2nd hand planes from larger carriers which have gone round the clock several times? Or to fuel the conspiracy theories, it's part of a programme by the bigger airlines to push the smaller ones out of business.
