There is now confirmed radar evidence of the cargo door departing in flight from TWA 800. There is a match between the primary radar images of Pan Am 103 and TWA 800 just before the total catastrophic destruction of both. At the same time and distance aft and before destruction of Pan Am 103, a radar blip was picked up by two ground radars for one sweep and displayed on a drawing in the UK report as a green diamond. At the same time and distance aft and just before the destruction of TWA 800 ground radars picked up a primary return which then also disappeared.The radar plots of 103 and 800 match on time and size of reflected primary radar energy on a target just behind those airliners which shortly came apart in the air. It is not a missile. It is not a P3. The P3 is to the east of TWA 800 and identified. The blip is the forward cargo door spinning away probably with fuselage skin attached, just like UAL 811 which tracked that radar blip to the ocean where the door was retrieved. The UAL 811 radar images will match the TWA 800 and Pan Am 103 images. Air India was too far away for a primary radar image when it destructed in mid-air.The door appears almost stationary to the radar because it is decelerating and falling. The streak is the sun's reflected energy on the metal door and skin as it peels erratically away in the sunset and observed by viewers looking east up high. The reflected flash of sunlight has been videotaped as a Boeing 747 flew by overhead with same sun angle as TWA 800 to streak observers. The forward cargo door was seen by primary radar and human eyes as it departed TWA 800. It left first of all the pieces to go, and landed closest to the takeoff point. The door has failed before. The effect of departing caused an explosive decompression which was recorded on the cockpit voice recorder as a sudden loud sound just before an abrupt power cut. The cut occurred when the nose separated from the rest of the body by the force of the 300 knot slipstream crumpling the nose into the cargo door hole caused crease. I say again: There is a match between the primary radar images of Pan Am 103 and TWA 800 just before the total catastrophic destruction of both. The culprit's fingerprint matched at two crimes. The cause of the crashes is the inadvertent opening of the forward cargo door in flight. I am responding to Karl Swartz's request: Perhaps some of our readers who spend their workdays looking at radar screens can comment on the images with some authority. I have thousands of hours of looking at radar scopes on P2, P 3, and RA-5C aircraft, plus hundreds of hours fiixing them. Joihn Barry Smith -- "Maybe Next Time"
