Well, then delete what I wrote and write something wiz. MaltaTalk 12:46, 8 March 2017 (EST)

I checked the crash site from the navigation map I managed to acquire. There's not much of it left; just an oil slick on the surface of the ocean. However, there was still a lingering spell's astral signature at the location. Given its dispersion and nature, I think it was affecting something on the plane as it was plummeting, but the signal is too weak to tell reliably. I'm also pretty sure that this manipulation spell is something that absorbed or otherwise dispersed energy—admittedly that could be anything from the fuel being eaten or to help Lucy brace the impact of the crash. Any theories you might want to bounce? — Revàn(Talk) 23:15, 8 March 2017 (EST)

Either this is some sort of ritual spell, or we're dealing with a mage of enough power to levitate a jet. Or someone disguising the jet as it pretended to crash... Aw frag - if the fraggin' jet crash was a 'trid phantasm and the whole base contains the jet. Or there was an anchored spell to defend the small base and destroyed it. --MaltaTalk 11:52, 9 March 2017 (EST)

I imagine that if the spell was affecting the entire plane it would have been more... cohesive? The signature looked like thirty seconds of something small as it was falling through the sky at supersonic speed, smeared with the passage of time and less like a ritual cast on the whole plane and activated as it neared the barrier. — Revàn(Talk) 12:38, 9 March 2017 (EST)
