    seems very very strange. apparently the plane took off KNOWING there was a
    issue with the AC units, then once above 11000 the masks for passengers
    dropped down, and it was freezing cold. However the pilot and co pilot was
    seen (by the 2x jet fighters) NOT TO BE WEARING there masks?!?!?!

    The pilots oxygen would be supplied from bottles, whilst the passengers
    comes from the "burning candle" type kits, is that right?

    Maybe the pilots genuine oxygen packed up - reports say the passengers
    bodies recovered all have oxygen masks on.
