For the paranoia file. I heard this morning on the radio that a maintenance truck had been stolen on October 15th from an agency that has access to all New York airports. Could it be that someone with evil intent did something to the American Airlines' plane that went down in Queens yesterday?
On the other hand, even if it was not a terrorist attack, I'm not sure how if it was mechanical failure it is supposed to restore confidence in the airline industry. If anything in my case it lessens it.
