NTSB News Conference beginning......
Going through the manifest.
Pulling all maintenance Records, nothing out of ordinary so far.
GO team from the NTSB on their way to NY now.....
No one in government has said that it wasn't a terrorist attack. They've said there's no evidence it was a terrorist attack. No on in government has said Al Quaeda didn't send the anthrax. They've said there's no evidence Al Quaeda sent the anthrax.
There's a HUGE difference.
People need to master these concepts like sentences, words, what they mean, etc.
Well, Tommy did originally want to be Secy. of Transportation. (IS NTSB under that dept?)
The pilot didn't report problem? Truly weird and suspicious. One would think that he would have called in immediately with report of explosion. What would have kept him from doing so?
Megadata Announces PASSUR Flight Track Replay And Analysis of American Airlines Flight 587
(Copyright (c) 2001, PR Newswire)
GREENWICH, Conn., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Megadata's PASSUR flight tracking system has recorded the flight track and data of American Airlines flight 587, departing from JFK International Airport on Monday, November 12, 2001.
Our condolences go out to the families and all of those affected by this tragic event.
The replay and flight track reconstruction of flight 587 have been provided to American Airlines, FAA, NTSB and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
As in past aviation incidents and accidents such as September 11, 2001, TWA 800, EgyptAir 990, Alaska Air 261 and numerous other incidents, Megadata will release any data we have about these incidents first to aviation and law enforcement authorities, to our respective airline and airport customers, and then the media, as appropriate.
Megadata's PASSUR system, which tracks aircraft with a 4.6 second update rate, records all flight activity that is received and processed and is available for immediate replay and analysis. Information derived from the system includes exact flight position, runway used, speed, altitude, type of aircraft, and all other flight activity in the area. The PASSUR system is based on an independent network of passive radar installations.
PASSUR -- Passive Secondary Surveillance Radar -- works through an antenna system using a dual frequency receiver to passively monitor interrogations from the airport surveillance radar (ASR) and the response from the aircraft transponder. Data acquired by the PASSUR unit is then processed through the Megadata proprietary software, which integrates other data sources as well, to create onscreen graphics, text and tools. PASSUR provides graphical and textual information on flights within a 150-mile radius of the terminal all the way to touch down -- updating every 4.6 seconds.
PASSUR provides independent and accurate arrival data, and decision-support tools, to 7 major airlines and over 23 airports.
For additional information, contact Ron Dunsky at Megadata at (631) 589-6800 or (917) 587-9672, and review our website at http://www.passur.com.

They don't and haven't said that. The quotes I have heard say they have no indication it was terrorists, but don't say it definitely wasn't terrorists.
