Asking the Unasked Questions: Was the Crashed Bellview Aircraft Bombed?
In case you are shocked by John's analysis, i think you should the contrasting analysis by Bologi Jimada:
The plane had not too long to that time undergone a 'C' check which
requires the stripping of the entire airframe. If I am able, I will
reproduce my article which included details of the similar crashes, the
AD's issued by FAA in America, the cost of repair and time required to
replace the faulty component. I also compiled quite a few details of
accidents which were suspected to be caused by this faulty device.
Curiously some planes flipped over on the runway, which may tempt one to
want to doubt the conclusion of the ADC crash in Abuja which was blamed
on wind shear. The AIB in America noted that temperature differentials
may cause the control unit to fail. Hydraulic fluids are usually hot
while the control surfaces they course through are usually cold from the
elements. The Bellview crash was at night, while the ADC crash was
during a rainfall. Again these could be argued either way, but suffice
it to say that it carried a much higher probability than the bomb theory
in the case of the Bellview incident.
Wow! Two amazing contrasting positions from ardent members of our discussion group! The theories and counter theories emerging in recent times provide a compelling basis to demand that the report of the Bellview crash investigation be released. Impunity flourishes where steps are hardly taken to make erring citizens and officials accountable for their inactions. Like Bologi Jimada added:
