Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not sure it is proper to ask, so you may just ignore my question : do you get your info from sources available to anyone, or do you have access to some privileged sources ?

In any case, thanks for sharing.

There are many sources for this story (Jeromes link above is an excellent one). I made a compilation of what I knew and what I found. Many details and technical details are left out to make the diary readable, this is not an aviation forum.
In this case I had a privileged source : in an earlier diary I mentioned my son works as an aviation engineer. He serviced the plane before it departured for the Middle East. He knows the crew and has lots of inside information.
I post later the most relevant links.
