Just watched this documentary on Netflix streaming and while I am about as Anti-Conspiracy as they come I did find their obviously biased presentation compelling.
In particular I found the sheer number of former NTSB investigators and other “credible” subject matter experts to be compelling.
From a factual standpoint though I would be curious to learn some fact checking on the following statements made:
An FBI agent named Ricky Hahn was found to be tampering with evidence by - literally they claim - hammering out a piece of the fuselage to change its shape. Did that REALLY happen? I could find no follow up on this agent. Was he reprimanded?
The radar data that they claim shows debris ejecting from the plane at mach 4 at around FL13 which would indicate a ballistics explosion.
The nitrate residue that was proven to have been melted onto the outside of central fuel tank prior to the explosion, thus - as they claim - eliminating the fuel tank as the source of the explosion.
To be clear I do not necessarily think there was a conspiracy or even a cover up. I generally agree with the NTSB that eye witness accounts are generally unreliable. However I do believe that the documentary - while biased - does a good job of showing that perhaps the NTSB’s final review of findings was inaccurate and that the fuel tank may not have been the catalyst for the disaster.
Would love to hear some opinions and fact checking on this!
