    Exactly. I know sentience sounds close to statistics, but they're not the same thing.

      Um.

      Here is the panel afterwards:



      Any of our SMEs care to speculate given that rip pattern and the apparent splitting of the surface from that honeycomb interior? I assume it is not solid because of weight? Is this a shear?

      The airline denies it was lost midair, and says it actually ripped off after landing. Could the vibration of the landing do that? It is (er, was) right next to the landing gear.

          Anything’s possible, but if it was lost after landing, they should be able to produce the panel as proof. If it started coming apart in mid air, then it sure seems like continuous wind blowing past at 400-500 mph would tend to cause it to unzip a lot more violently than the momentary structural load imparted by landing or driving over a bump. The worst tornadoes are only like 300 mph, and the forces go as the square of speed.

          Nearly all composite panels are constructed like this, with carbon/kevlar/glass fibers sandwiching a plastic lightweight honeycomb core. Pound for pound, that’s much stiffer and stronger than a panel made from just fiber and resin. Usual there are multiple layers of fiber cloth, whose resins meld together during the curing process. By far the most common failure mode is “delamination” where those layers of fiber peel apart from each other (or peel away from the core). There’s certainly evidence of that here, but again, you would see that after failure in almost any loading condition, so it’s non-specific as to the root cause.

                        This is deeply disturbing. Without reading the article I don't know how quickly and easily they were able to prove it was a fake, but I expect this to begin happening more and more often. And at some point it's going to run people and/or get people killed before it can be exposed, often with the damage being irreversible should it not lead to death.

                            I just saw a NordVPN ad during the Rangers-Carolina game. Is that just because I'm in a state where the derps blocked porn?
