This conspiracy stuff is embarrasing.
But nothing like as embarrassing as the video produced by the NTSB that tried to explain how a heavily laden 747 that was lumbering along at best rate of climb would, after having broken in two just forward of the wings, continue to climb for over 3000 more feet before falling into the ocean.
Now THAT'S embarrassing!

The aircraft was not fully loaded, either fuel or passengers. All aircraft are balanced for and aft. When the 747 had the front nose blown off, it lost tons of balance, making the tail heavier. The nose rises. Engines keep turning, the aircraft climbs. Boeing center fuel tanks have blown up before this event.
