The latest is a series of conspiracy nut garbage regarding the crash of an Egypt Air flight.
This is probably terrorism-related, but that’s not yet proved. The flight track shows violent maneuvers that no pilot would likely make on his own voluntarily even with a serious mechanical failure. That in turn implies a complete loss of control right at the time of the first maneuver’s initiation.
There are of course two reasonably-plausible reasons for such an event: A severe and unrecoverable mechanical failure of the aircraft, and a terrorist act that made impossible further controlled flight.
