Some Chicago Boyz know each other from student days at the University of Chicago. Others are Chicago boys in spirit. The blog name is also intended as a good-humored gesture of admiration for distinguished Chicago School economists and fellow travelers.

Art supplies, tools of creativity, instruments of inspiration, very nice!!!
That’s a very lovely picture!
Using this as an open thread, this is not exactly a shocker:
“Flight data indicates someone in the cockpit intentionally crashed a China Eastern jet earlier this year, according to people familiar with U.S. officials’ preliminary assessment of what led to the accident.”
I had read earlier that the recorders were brought back here because the crash was so violent that they were damaged and needed special facilities to recover the data. I think it was the flight data recorder that was found 15 meters below the bottom of the crater.
They were pretty close to their destination, I wonder where the other pilot was. Both pilots should have been busy getting ready for landing.
There have been a number of crashes and near crashes because pilots don’t get much practice hand flying the airplane, especially at some airlines. Air France had a close call a few weeks ago.
If it was intentional, there will be lots of evidence, especially on the voice recorder and what happened to the other pilot. It sounds like the information should be out soon. I believe that China is bound by international agreements and can’t keep this secret without losing the privilege of flying planes internationally.
I think I recall the plane went into a nosedive, then briefly started to pull up, then turned again and nosed into the ground, I presume indicating a struggle over control of the plane. Seemed like an intentional act was always the most reasonable theory.
Here’s something that some people will find interesting. Ever wonder what the inside of a ship’s engine looks like when it’s turning?
Notice the engine room, I believe the Chief runs a tight engineering department.
