as possible from going into a stall the aircraft you flew could be stalled very easily. >> actually, i flew the firs tackle jet that had fly by wire technology. i know how you can get into a situation where you are fighting the airplane where it is trying to correct you prevent you from doing something wrong and you feel like you are fighting. thank you so much for being here today. great information for us. we will see what happens with this. hopefully the families get some sort of resolution to this. cheryl, over to you. >> the time is 25 minutes after the hour. chaos in the streets. why social media is to blame for several stunts and high speed chases. plus social laws don't believe everything you read on facebook. who is most likely to lie on social media? first on this day in 1851 the first ymca opens in boston, massachusetts. in 1984 the first regular season

reports from air traffic control initially gave pilots permission to climb but reversed the decision due to other air traffic in the vicinity. minutes later the plane disappeared from radar. further speculation about airasia flight 8501 is that it was flying too slow may have stalled and crashed into the sea due to intense forms. >> it can be really jarring physically it has enough force. we are taught to try to avoid them but not with standing it has happened before. there have been several weather related crashes within the past decade including airasia plane which crashed this year during landing trying to avoid a thunderstorm and a crash in august 2005 during landing due to heavy rain and hail and flight 612 which crashed in
eastern ukraine. experts there say flight 612 was eerily similar to airasia. it was cruding at an at actualed in an attempt to climb over a thunderstorm but hit severe turbulence stalled and crashed. until airasia flight 8501 is found there is speculation as to what might have happened such as a catastrophic failure or storm that confused the pilot. >> kel lae wright in washington. thank you. >> asia being accustomed to the type of casualties. the third in the region just this year. malaysia airline flight 370 disappeared back in march and was never found then flight 17 was shot down over eastern ukraine. the transport minister says they are hoping next year will be better. >> it has been a troubled year for us. we must be strong but looking

attacks were in the works but some airlines issuing a statement including british airways which says the safety and security of the crew is always our top priority. we continue to work closely with airports and governments around the world. al qaeda seems to be favoring the kind of lone wolf attacks we saw during the boston marathon bombing unlike unlike 9-11 attacks it had little planning>> thank you, doug. the last british inmate at guantanamo bayeux pekted to go free. he is accused of recruiting for al qaeda but he has been deemed a nonthreat and cleared for release. david cameron will allow him back in the country. they will get the number of prisoners down so they can close

so that's something we need to understand also the sense of perception that becomes a reality. we have a lot of talking we are going to have to do here to understand all sides of this issue. this is not a one-sided issue. >> saved the bell's dustin diamond in court today accused of stabbing a man in wisconsin. the actor you probably remember as screech from the 90's sitcom faces nell knee reckless endarreningment and carrying weapons. he was defending his girlfriend when he accidentally stabbed a man with a switch blade. diamond could face 10 years in jail if found guilty. >> here we go again. get ready to bundle up. maria molina is tracking a big chill with a chance of rain and snow. right mal lenaan molina? >> temperatures haven't been too
bad. the arctic blast retreated from earlier this evening mild temperatures even record high temperatures were set across parts of the north east. that is all coming to an end this week. we have colder air southward across canada and northern plains and into the midwest. current windchill temperatures 8 below zero minneapolis 7 below in rapid city and cold across portions of the midwest and into the planes. in kansas city at 28 degrees right now it feels like 18 in the city of chicago. those actual high temperatures are going to stay cold as well through out the day and are going to expand eastward and southward as we head into tomorrow. otherwise tracking areas of across parts of the southeast we could see delays on the roadways that is mostly early in the day another area of concern for travel is the rockies. we are looking at a foot of snow up in some of the higher elevations a couple of inches across parts of the valley floors.
back to you. >> thanks maria. oo thanks. >> the time is 40 minutes after the hour. more on our fox news alert the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of airasia flight 8501. our next guest will explain how the technology could have been a factor. >> and a great white bite? how a surfer survived a horrifying ordeal in the ocean. >> going way beyond the badge. how police helped a little princess' dream come true.
the tracking system putting airlines under scrutiny. how do the tracking abilities compare to the airlines around the world. could it be linked to the fact that it was a budget airline? aviation pilot joins us with some of the answers. most aircraft have the tracking technology. we don't know if this plane did. but the fact that they cannot find the aircraft does that tell you anything? >> it only tells me this is a little bit different thannal lash yaw 370 where we didn't know where the air thaft was. here we have a good indication of where the footprint because at the last time. we have airwaves sighting and we know before it is at the point where it broke up or went into the ocean. >> it brings across a bigger worry for many u.s. passengers in that we open the aircraft we are on every day has appropriate tracking. this is a budget airline.
if they cut corners with this technology is that a problem do you think? should we feel safe? >> i think we should feel safe. you look at the malaysian 370 again and they had the system in the aircraft that was turned off or failed. even with the technology we have to be sure the technology is working. in this particular case if in fact a thunderstorm was the cause of it and that plane broke up with that equipment still have given us signals that we could rely on? chances are once the plane is in a very hazardous situation as it was here, we may not be able to depend on that. >> what is the time line of the aircraft trau gjek sore rethat we have and what we know so far tell you? i want to show our view erbs a time line of what we know happened. a lot of speculation may not
have gone into the storms. >> the first thing you learn as a pilot avoid thunderstorms at all costs. flying above them is not an option. the fact that he was not denied the ability to go even higher is probably not an issue here. if he was really in dire need he could have taken his pilot command authority made that claim on his own. >> even if air traffic control tells you you could not change altitude he could have done that. >> absolutely. the ultimate decision is from the pilot. >> do we need to look at with whether u.s. passengers should be flying on these planes? >> they have to go through the same rigors of the ical the international community of aviation. but it is very very clear over the years flying domestically with domestic airlines is much safer than flying foreign airlines. >> over to you. >> the time is 48 minutes after
