Videotaped Interview with Crash Eyewitness, John Power

This interview took place on Wed. morning Nov. 21st, 2001 at the same spot (and time) in the Salt Marsh Nature Center on the north side of Jamaica Bay where John and his wife were standing when they witnessed the flight and crash of AA Flight 587 . The key elements to his interview are:

a. plane was in distress long before the tail flew off
b. there was black smoke coming from the right side of the plane, possibly the engine
c. there was a noticeable flash or fire or explosion coming from the right side of the fuselage in or near the engine
d. the tail fell off only after the plane underwent a violent sequence of a rolls and/or spins
e. you can also read this article based on my interview with John
