Tell us how; we're very interested.

You have a vivid imagination.  Your website talks of 300 knot air
"rushing into" the aircraft, causing the breakup.  Anybody with a
reasonable knowledge of aerodynamics knows that a hole in the side of an
aircraft, pressurised or not, will cause a suction effect, where the air
inside is sucked out.  It is the same principle that causes a wing to
generate lift.

As for the "crumpling of the nose...", you obviously have little
knowledge of aircraft structure failure modes.

How does the cargo door theory fit in with the fact that, according to
the NTSB, the explosion originated INSIDE the centre fuel tank?

"Mechanical fault" is NOT the number one category of crashes.  At the
moment, CFIT (controlled flight into terrain) is on top.

I suggest that you ARE exaggerating.  If the cargo door was at fault,
the investigators would have noticed by now.  I suggest that you post to
alt.conspiracies.twa800 in future.
