- No, I am not an aviator, psychologist, or investigator; just
an ordinary U.S. citizen with some thoughts on eyewitness accounts.
I was a witness to a traffic accident some years ago that was
rather major, invloving three vehicles and injuries to drivers/passengers.
The entire incident occured in probably 1.5 - 2 seconds (max.)
My recollections of what happened in that event are fuzzy (I
saw the incident to my right as I turned left onto another street).
I do, however, know the number of cars involved and who got out
of them (and who did not) . . . so, I can safely say that some
of what I saw is accurate.
RE Flights TWA800 and AA587: Too many people seeing too many
closely related details is a bit like the car pile-up I witnessed,
and, curiously, reminds me of a very famous disaster: when the
Titanic sank on April 15, 1912, many (if not most) of the 705
survivors distinctly recalled hearing AND seeing the ship break
in half before sinking, despite seeing the event from various
angles and positions. They were dismissed by maritime "experts"
as being "mistaken" (the same "experts" not
even having been present at the sinking!!!) Curious is it not?
Especially when, in 1987, Robert Ballard verified that the "mistaken"
witnesses were right, after all??? Can the NTSB/FBI/FAA clear
their heads for a moment and think this through in regard (especially)
