    They already announced that on day 1, just hours after the accident. But that news has been replaced now by it's damaged but not unreadable

    Watched the missile video a few times now - have to say, it's one of the slowest missiles I've ever seen, even in slow motion.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Based on what? What were the respective angles with regards to camera, aircraft and missile?

    I seriously hope your clients hire you for your comedic value because you're **** all use for anything else!

    I'd be hard pressed to make a judgement vs, for example, this video:

    YouTube

    But then I haven't quite got the same weird urge to be humiliated on the Internet in front of my own self proclaimed credentials.

    I've learnt so much from my mistakes I'm thinking of making a few more.

    Now just chill, deep breath.

    Saw on the BBC news tonight that they have been clearing the crash site. Hardly the right action from a state that wants a proper investigation.
