Shoe Bomb my a$$ unless of course bigfoot was on the plane and sneaked an extra shoe on packed with HE. That looked like a picture perfect shape charge perfectly place at the planes most important structeral area to do the most damage and look the most impressive. They snapped the fuesalage rite at the balance piont! Did you see how the tail moved up and down? this was due morre to imbalance then enything. Also you would be stting down so the force of the blast would be sent into the baggage hold. that one shot almost strait out.

I have seen vidoe of sidewinders hitting planes and doing less damage.
Someone was having fun or making propaganda.

If I'm wrong I'm sure MO will be all over me but that vids has a high BS factor to me
