Simplicity Itself.
23 February 2017 | by rmax304823See all my reviews

A Canadian airplane takes off from Jedda with a full load of Muslims returning from their ritual visit to Mecca. Most have never been in an airplane before.

During the take off run there is a puzzling pop. A few minutes later controls begin to cut out and the instruments go haywire. Then the flight attendant reports smoke in the passenger cabin. The smoke turns to blistering hot flame that burns through the fuselage, so bodies begin to drop from the airplane. Ten minutes after takeoff, the airplane crashes short of the runway and everyone perishes.

The episode is a marvel of clarity. I won't describe the details except to note that it all begins with an underinflated tire.
