CNN has had a lot of people dumping on their ridiculously over-blown coverage of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, but credit where credit is due: Their science is solid:

This. Is CNN.

    Obviously alternative fuel sources are needed. In the future, all passenger planes should be required to carry a herd of flatulent unicorns to provide an emergency power supply.

    Well hello Mr. Obvious. And they wonder why Boeing is having problems with the 787 Dreamliner.

    Maybe they should get Piers Morgan to demonstrate that when airplanes run out of gas, they crash. He needs a new job doesn't he?

    Crash test dummy. He's definitely got the dummy part down pat.

    Somehow he would screw that job up too.

    "a herd of flatulent unicorns"

    With all the Magical Thinking that's managed to keep this administration aloft? It just might be worth a TRY? Lol, have Jay Carney get on that asap…

    Any time there's an aviation incident, takeoff mishap etc., 'experts' seem to come out of the woodwork without any [concrete] credentials. To the avg. person maybe that washes just fine but for those of us that have worked in the industry?

    I'd never take an airframe/sheet metal technician's word for an incident pertaining to a domain more applicable to an aircraft controller, or hydraulic system advice from an avionics tech! The field is far too specialized to get an accurate read from some NTSB/FAA gov./quota hire.

    Unless we're down to specifics.., why BOTHER?
