It seems like the Flight 587 conspiracy theorists had it wrong after all.

It seems like the Flight 587 conspiracy theorists had it wrong after all. Recently, the NTSB released preliminary findings on the crash of the American Airlines Airbus A-300 at Queens, NY and the evidence increasingly points to mechanical failure. Just in case you want to doubt them (as I did), the NTSB has posted photographs of the failed parts on their site. Intrestingly, a new alternative theory, puts the blame on grey market parts.

Apparently, the crash of Flight 587 was an accident. The official explanation claims that the American A300-600 encountered the wake turbulence of a JAL 747 which tore off its tailfin. Now, I am no fan of conspiracy theories, but the lack of historical problems gives food for thought (Tripod link via RobotWisdom). [more inside]
