Recently, some people have written about the crash of TWA Flight 800, because the fifteenth anniversary of that crash occurred a few days ago. (See here.) I remember at the time being hungry for details because I thought it was caused by terrorism, but the details were very slow in coming, and eventually I lost interest. It’s still unclear, but perhaps it was terrorism. On the other hand, the people at the link sound vaguely the way that the truthers sound about 9/11.
Anyway, another crash that is intriguing is that of EgyptAir Flight 990. See here and here.
The key Arabic phrase uttered by the co-pilot a bunch of times was tawakkalt ala Allah, which they have translated as “I rely on God,” though it seems to me to be “I relied on God.” To the extent that there is a difference here, the former might be uttered by a terrorist, while the latter might be uttered by someone who has been deeply disappointed about something, feels betrayed, and decides there is no more point in living.
