I have been continuing my amateur efforts at crash reconstruction. I will reiterate that I know that I am not with the NTSB and that they will bring much more sophisticated analysis, but I thought the members of this forum might be interested in my efforts. I appreciate any suggestions for improvement. My assumptions include that the ADS-B altitude adjustment is about 270' (from Zeke), that the crash happened 6.7 seconds after the last ADS-B data from Flight Radar 24 (from flybucky), that there has to be a tightening left turn in the last 6.7 seconds to match the debris field, and that the rate of decent was roughly constant until impact.
The clock starts 2:00 minutes before the last ADS-B data from Flight Radar 24. The camera is tilted down 10 degrees until 1:45 in the video, when I tilt the camera down to aim along the pitch of descent. The camera yaw is tied to the ADS-B "track" until there is no more ADS-B data, at which point I just aim along the flight path.
Lastly I will note that the ADS-B data from Flight Radar 24 has inputs from multiple receivers, and the timestamps they affix are circumspect. I believe I have found duplicate data with timestamps that differ by up to a second. This makes timing very challenging.
I am very appreciative of the folks at Google for letting me use Google Earth Studio (I had to submit a request to access the preview), to the folks at Flight Radar 24 for making the data available, to the Australian ATSB for their CSV to KML tool, and to flybucky for some suggestions he gave.
I have decided not to post this video to YouTube until I get feedback from the experts on this forum. Here is a link to the video, and I have found that downloading it seems to give better quality that looking at it in a browser. Thanks in advance for any comments you may have.https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ai5ul4veNOgHhYl0RpU ... w?e=kad472
