I’ve gotten a ton of variations on this question today and I keep answering them privately but they keep coming in so I’m going to go ahead and publish this one publicly for the record:
It’s well written, all factually accurate from a procedural standpoint, and a totally valid and plausible explanation. I was going to say the reason it hasn’t gained much traction is because it’s so overtly rational there’s not much room for the media to sensationalize, however given the number of questions I got it appears to be picking up steam. And honestly this is an angle that deserves more attention because it makes a whole lot of sense.
That being said, while it is an informed and logical explanation, until we find evidence it’s still complete speculation. The theory is however slowly overtaking Langoliers as my go to answer when people ask me what probably happened.
