    • Iran plane crash: A Kiev-bound Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737 plane crashed after takeoff from Tehran on Wednesday, killing all 176 people on board.
    • Victims from seven countries: The victims include 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans and three British nationals, according to Ukraine's Foreign Minister.
    • Aircraft built in 2016: Ukraine International Airlines said in a statement that the plane was a Boeing 737-800 NG, "built in 2016 and delivered directly to the airline from the manufacturer."
    • Minutes after takeoff: The airline also confirmed that the plane disappeared from radars a few minutes after its departure from the Iranian capital.

    I've seen pics on cable that showed, what looked to me,
    like clear cannon holes.

    They reported the plane climbed to 8K feet and then
    vanished. IMHO some gunner saw lights and shot
    the plane out of the sky. I doubt the ragheads will
    ever admit it and they won't give the black boxes
    to Boeing.

    You're right on the money:

    Iran says it will not give black box of Ukrainian plane to Boeing:

    A cannon seems a little unlikely since there weren't any tracers visible and I'm not sure the Iranians could hit anything at 8000 ft without filling the sky with steel. A missile, well, also no trail. Could be sabotage, could have collided with some uncontrolled thing, like a drone. Did seem to have a fire of some kind going on the footage I saw.

    Not giving up the black boxes is a huge red flag.

    I don't know enough about planes or weapons to know for sure about what happened to the plane, but the timing is very suspicious. The Iranians would have been expecting a counter attack of some sort at the time it happened.

    It was already on-fire going down... I betcha the maintenance-crew was rushed through pre-flight inspection by some sort of military-related meddling... and an electrical-situation developed as they went wheels-up.

    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Pretty sure our government knows exactly what happened. At the time of hostilities, a hummingbird could not have switched trees without our satellites and surveillance planes spotting it.

    Missile launch? They know. Engine flame out? They would know that as well.

    We know it was a Missile attack. We are holding the info for a tactical purpose.
