In the german TV a report about the El-Al crash stated that many local residents near the crash site develloped in the meantime symptoms linked to radiation-exposure. The program concluded that the counterweights used by the 747 were made of uranium, and that the radiation spread around through the resulting fire. In the program, Boeings official comment was that the _actual_ counterweights are made of steel. Does anybody know which material was used to balance the earlier versions of the 747 ?
