Jun 4th 2011 2:43PM I have a guess as to what happened. The TU-154 got caught in the wake turbulence of the C-130 refueling that Phantom. If you're not sure what "wake turbulence" is... think of it as a horizontal tornado coming off the wing tips of ALL aircraft in flight. The C-130, I would think, creates wake turbulence in the range of an EF3 or 4 tornado which would be more than enough to knock any plane out of the sky that happened to venture into it.
Just a guess, but from the position of the airliner... i'd bet money on it.

Nov 5th 2009 11:47AM why does humor have to be analyzed? why does humor have to be politically correct? ALL humor is satire, for that matter. some just a little more pointed that others.
that some writer has to come down on one of the funniest guys out there is simply economics. if the writer wouldn't pitch a fit about something... ANYTHING... and get us to fight back, the writer would be out of a job..
I think it was George Bernard Shaw who said, "CRITICS ARE LEGLESS MEN WHO TEACH RUNNING."
someone asked what kind of name DAYNAH was. it's gay. probably a butch lesbian who has no sense of humor to begin with.
