But the engines stopped working too.
Ignoring the fact that mechanical and chemical systems are still working just fine and dandy based upon this episode and that it's expressly stated that electricity is the only thing that stopped working, even a 300-ton cube of steel traveling at 500mph before losing its propulsion isn't going to just stop
in mid-air and fall straight
down. No forward movement whatsoever. And it wasn't even a dive
down. It was belly-first.
What's even dumber is that when these planes fell, their lights were still working.
