This is my reply to a reporter which applies to newsgroup also: >Am not entirely convinced of your cargo door > scenario, So right, I understand, how can a guy in a converted garage with a personal computer and phone line figure something out that has eluded the professional aviation investigating teams of four countries who have spent years and millions of dollars? Easy, actually, but for our discussion let's say he can't. But the guy, who has 40 years of flying experience, available time because he is financially independent, desire because he was survivor of a flaming, night, fatal jet airplane crash, access because he has the internet, and most important, wisdom because of hindsight of twelve years of successive accidents; the guy, me, can convince/persuade you that the cargo door is a worthy line of investigation for the crash cause of TWA 800. That's all, a worthy line of investigation; after all, they have checked out natural gas bubbles, missiles, bombs, space debris, and fires. Asking NTSB to check out a known killer of nine who was near the scene of the crime and left first after the crime was committed is not... is not...weird. To not investigate cargo door is strange. It's not a coincidence that: The cargo door theory explains the steak because the event happened when the plane was in the correct sun angle and time for the fuselage to reflect sun to observers on the ground. At any other 23 hours and 30 minutes of the day, it could not be said the streak was door because the sun angle would be wrong or non existent. But, at 8:31PM on July 17th near NYC the sun angle was perfect for door to reflect sunlight as it spun away. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains the mysterious radar blip because the spinning metal cargo door with fuselage skin attached would reflect primary radar at that distance, just like it did with the DC-10 cargo door and the UAL 811 cargo door departures. The two blips on the radar plot without transponder display are a P-3 and the cargo door. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains the sudden loud sound on the CVR because when the door departs an explosive decompression occurs which causes a very loud sound, just like it did on UAL 811 according to the passengers who survived. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains the abrupt power cut because the power to the FDR and transponder was cut when the nose was severed by the 300 knot CAS force crumpling the nose into the absent cargo door hole. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains the missing bodies because the passengers are sucked out the hole caused by the departing cargo door and attached fuselage skin and into the number three engine leaving parts of human remains inside, just like UAL 811. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains why number three engine catches fire and lands separately from the other three engines because baggage from the cargo hold is ejected into number three engine which becomes Fodded, catches fire, vibrates, fuse bolts shear as designed, and engine falls away on fire before other three engines are involved. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains the fireball when baggage from the cargo hold is ejected into number three engine which becomes Fodded, catches fire, vibrates, fuse bolts shear as designed, and engine falls away on fire into disintegrating wing, fuel vapor and air, igniting fireball. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains why the aft cargo door is found intact and the forward door in pieces because the forward door opens up, out, and away, striking fuselage and breaking into pieces, just like UAL 811. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains the debris pattern which shows forward cargo hold material ejected first, then detached nose falling in dense area, and rest of fuselage and wing and tail falling in scattered area miles later. It's no coincidence; it's cause and effect. The cargo door theory explains it all because it is what happened; the other theories just fit a few of the important evidence clues and don't work for the others. >What concerns me > the most is that I'm not at all confident that we taxpaying peasants > in the public will ever be told the full story. And that's where you come in to request that the taxpayers get a proper investigation into reasonable, happened before, mechanical cause for an airplane crash, the cargo door. We will be told the full story if you press for a worthy line of investigation into the number one category of scheduled airlines crashes, mechanical fault generally and in this specific instance, cargo door fault. The larger question is do you want to get involved in something that stirs the pot, opens a can of worms, sticks your nose where it doesn't belong, starts something he shouldn't, makes waves, rocks the boat, be different, ...any more? And I think the answer could be 'no.' It comes down to job description, shill or investigative reporter/editor. A shill can be a good thing and is definitely a good thing at times, such as a poker game waiting for real players to show up. A shill reporter does what the big guys say, which in this case was bomb, no, missile, no center tank fire, no, wait, we're trying to prove that, just wait a while... An investigative reporter...well, he's a reporter who investigates, whatever that means. Is the story worth it? Well, it does involve Canada, France, Britain, USA, Libya, India, Ireland, and New Zealand; literally billions of dollars, thousands of lives, or I should say, 838 dead plus bereaved families, and the future of commercial aviation in America. Literally, I exaggerate not. Sincerely, John Barry Smith -- "Maybe Next Time"
