I also am confused at that comment. Of course we're interested, of course we care. All of us have lost friends and sometimes family. We want to know why this happened. This is close and personal to all of us.

I feel terrible for their families.

I've been to ALPA, USAF & USN Accident Investigation schools. I sincerely apologize if my observations offend you.

Next time I'll try to speak slower ... please try to put down the beer and focus.

One of the witnesses describe the smoke as a white vapor. Like misting fuel, maybe?

A very moving tribute by an "unknown soldier."

That's what I thought when the witness described "white smoke" like a "stunt plane"

I agree that both wings appear to have made it to the crash site. Whether or not all the engines or their components did is another question. I can easily see where a prop/blade or rotating internal engine component liberated causing all sorts of structural and/or control damage. That's why heavier rotating components have specific life limits for replacement.
