Two significant additions to this release.

The first is discussion of an Argentine Navy Electra crash in '89. Video is available at
The video shows what an Electra actually does in a high bank right wing impact, compared to what the CAB said of Flight 706. I use a bunch of frame grabs to show how this contrasts with Flight 706 regarding trajectory, crash dynamics, and survivability. Very useful lessons.

The second is a series of posed images to show what N137US would have looked like in different bank angles. My most encouraging supporter (a retired NWA pilot) gave me a big metal Electra model, and I posed it on a stand to replicate perspectives. The most important is the view from the control tower, presented as a storyboard in correct scale.
