For anyone deeply wondering about the loss of AirAsia's Flight 8501, here is a very good and detailed analysis of what happened to Air France Flight 447. 

http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/aviation/crashes/what-really-happened-aboard-air-france-447-6611877

Not to say that the causes of the crashes will be determined to be the same (most likely not), but both were in a storm and it at least gives a very good idea of how these things can happen.

Also note that it took almost 2 years to recover flight-data recorders and figure this out (and the analysis and report took months), so answers will not be swift.

We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. "Gangnam Style" has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!

Hover over the counter in PSY's video to see a little math magic and stay tuned for bigger and bigger numbers on YouTube.
