I was wondering how many other people might be thinking of the similarites that flight 800 suffered:
Like Air India 182, in flight catostrophic failure, due to the forward cargo door;
United 811 structural failure in flight due to the forward cargo door;
Pan Am break up, due to bomb blast that ruptured the forward cargo door
All of these had radar blips preceding the events (the cargo door and aircraft skin falling away) All of these having #3 Engine FOD from cargo, etc,; All of these having starboard side wing FOD penetration damage; All of these aircraft "tear and peeling" effect starting at the starboard side station 680-station 741 just above the forward cargo door. All of these were -100's or 200's over 15,000 hours, that had a history of forward cargo door cam and electrical lock switch faults.
It just makes one stop and think, if TWA 800 may have had a cargo door jettison in flight.
Agree or Disagree?
