I'll go with the official story about the shorted wiring igniting the central fuel tank.
Where was Obama when this event occurred?maybe he can be implicated someway.C'mon all you Obama haters make the connection..

Funny stuff! in 50 years only one shorted wiring happened. Jet fuel can't be ignited in that manner. Do some simple research.

When that plane was all put back together- it was obvious the shape of what hit that plane and where it hit it.

250 witness' saw that object streak UP towards that plane.

I do know that Obama wasn't in the white house pretending to be president.

Grow up (if possible).

Sometimes sh*t happens. A shorted harness inside a fuel vapor/air filled fuel tank is the likliest reason for this tragedy.

Next thing I expect to read is this was a result of the special chemtrail fluid exploding or something equally absurd.

Then i'll bow to your vast knowledge and expertise in the matter and we'll say a missile brought the plane down ....... and?

Try telling that to Jim Lovell.

My undergrad degree in aerospace engineering calls BS on your "simple research."

Oh? And what "shape" was that? Hint: an explosion does not leave traces of the "shape" of anything.

Maybe because most people took mathematics through at least the 5th grade?

There are approximately 11 million commercials flights annually in the United States. It's been 16 years since TWA 800 went down.

16 * 11,000,000 = 176,000,000

So you figure those 176 million-to-1 odds are so terrifying that people shouldn't fly?

You're a prime example of irrational fears -- of people who are too scared to fly (ignorant of the fact that a 100-mile car ride is more 'dangerous' than a flight from New York to Paris [the TWA 800 flight]).

Funny stuff! A conspiracy-monger falsely claiming that such an incident had never occurred before!

Philippine Airlines Flight 143 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

[PS - short-circuits aren't particularly unusual at all. Fuel-vapor explosions are unusual. But hardly unique. If you'd read the NTSB report you would realize this, as it cites several examples of fuel-vapor explosions destroying aircraft. I guess all those wild and fantastic websites you love pitching lurid conspiracy theories forgot to mention that, huh?]

The jet blew up in mid-air. Case closed.

Lesson that should have been learned. Never run wiring inside fuel tank vapor space. Automotive in tank electric fuel pumps make me nervous. There has to be a safer way of pumping fuel to the injection system.

IIRC the subject fuel tank did look like it blew up from an explosion inside the tank not from a puncture from the outside. I agree that this is a closed case.
