I agree, as I believe did the AOC, that such suppositon had no part to play in the adjudication required from him under the Air Force Act. The investigating Board had to consider, under their TOR's, all possible scenarios and it is not surprising that some of these are less credible than others. The "findings" of the investigating Board are not binding on the AOC or CinC; in the same way as the "findings" of a Police investigation are not binding on a Jury in a Criminal Trial. In each case the verdict must be reached on the evidence as a whole.
