I am absolutely convinced that the ignition source for the exploding fuel tank (undisputed) on TWA flight 800 was a small meteor. To my thinking, a white hot particle no bigger than the tip of your finger, trailing a streak of light (as seen by several eye-witnessess) could have easily penetrated both the aircraft skin and fuel tank and ignited the fuel vapors in a low-order explosion (undisputed). I am puzzled by the official lack of any consideration of this theory, since it seems the only one that “fits” all of the available evidence of which I have heard. The odds of an aircraft being hit by a meteor would probably be calculated as astronomically small, but given that hundreds, if not thousands of meteors reach the surface of the earth every day as meteorites, those odds are still finite. If the eye-witnessess saw more than one streak, the perfectly inocent explanation is that the airplane had the ALMOST incredible bad luck of encountering a small meteor shower, only one of which struck the aircraft. Anybody wanna shoot me down?
