<< And disinfect the plane. Death sure does come around 0s administration a lot. >>
Seriously, what’s a legitimate purpose for wanting to retrieve a useless plane? Why not just let it stay where it is? What happens in OTHER cases with normal, everyday people who ditch a small plane in the ocean? Why would the federal govt pay good money to retrieve a useless small plane?
IOW, for those who follow this type of thing, is this retrieval something “above and beyond” what is normally done? If yes, are there any legitimate reasons? Because the only thing that’s coming to my feeble little mind is to sanitize the plane before curiosity seeker scuba divers find it, and that doesn’t exactly fall under the “Legitimate” column.
So many questions...
To determine if there is a flaw in the design of the engine, bad repair parts (there are a lot of non TSO parts that are sold as TSO, fuel contamination etc. or perhaps improper maintenance. This is important to prevent future failures with this engine if this was the cause of the crash.
I put nothing beyond Obama, but this seems to be a straight up accident due to engine failure due to at this time unknown causes.
She knew too much period!
Out of 6-10 folks, I forget the exact number, she is THE ONLY dead person.
Minimally that is suspicious even to the numerous fools that would believe ANYTHING the federal government said!
A lot of those questions answered in the source article, including the cost of the plane’s recovery being billed to the airline’s insurance company, and the recovery being handled by a private company. And NTSB interest in the engine of the plane which has had a number of engine related accidents recently.
Maybe they want to know why it didn't disintegrate in mid-air, as planned? (Just putting on the tinfoil).
“Seriously, whats a legitimate purpose for wanting to retrieve a useless plane?”
Well, if the cause of the crash is not a commonly known one, they probably want to figure out what happened so they can try to prevent future crashes.
“whats a legitimate purpose for wanting to retrieve a useless plane?”
To get the remote fuel cut-off switch off the engine, so it can’t be catalogued by the NTSB or Pratt-Whitney as the cause of failure.
Doubt there’s a bullet in her head, but probably the one next to her just held her head underwater for a couple of mins while she was floating and bobbing. They can’t afford another Ron Brown incident and pics on the Net of his head and bullet fragments etc.
