A300 Crash Video

Mon Jan 28, 2002 3:01 pm

Biz News are reporting in a one liner across the bottom of the screen that a video taken at the time of the AA A300 crash in New York, may shed some light on the cause of the crash.

Does anyone have any details of this video?

Interesting................

Does anyone ever know if a video was released of the AA 757 impacting the Pentagon? You would think if a wal-mart store has 8 cameras on the outside, the Pentagon would have quite a few more, right?

Wow! That was an interesting article at time.com. I would like to see what exactly happened.

AA 587 was a wierd accident. It is very coincidental that both the tail and the engine fell off  Confused. It would be great if the video could help the NTSB solve the mystery.

Seems rather odd that this video is just now surfacing.

Weren't there originally TWO videotapes of AA 587, both shot from tollbooths on causeways that cross jamaica bay? Both of these tapes were reportededly handed over to the NTSB four days after the accident occured, yet we are only just now hearing information about the second tape?

The first tape was of course, deemed rather useless as the A300 appeared as just a spec in the background. But why was nothing said about the second tape weeks ago when it was first obtained by the NTSB? Am I expected to believe that the NTSB is just now getting around to viewing the second tape? Please.

Perhaps this is some kind of cover up, although I really and sincerely hope it is not! Someone set me straight if I have gotten my facts wrong.
