Was it a bomb? Doesn't look like explosive decompression, also as the article says it wasn't at a high enough altitude

Here's an article from CNN that's written a little better than the first. It's still way too early to speculate what happened so we should just wait for more information before blurting out terrorism or something.

Condolences to the family of the passenger who got sucked out. This could have ended a lot worse than it did, I'm sure it was no easy feat for the pilots to fly it down and land safely. "Explosive residue" does not sound good for a start to an investigation.

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

Can't see any other reason for explosives residue to be present.And this type of IED has been used before on a civilian flight.But obviously it did not work as planed.

Man who fell from plane was the terrorist who detonated the bomb. Only fatality.
Closer to a jackass stunt than a terrorist attack.

"IT'S A PRANK BRO!"

Yep. you farted on my head to try and get a rise out of me. Congrats, you've got it.

Tell me, if you had to choose, entirely hypothetical, between the taste of the pavement or the taste of a 2 by 4, which would you pick?

There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!
