Checkboard: I’d be interested to know if you’ve read Mr Davies’ submission (and supplements) here: and to understand where you consider his reasoning to go astray.
I looked through them at the time. My "That's ridiculous" comment was purely on the statement that loading 8670 lbs (full fuel) would result in arriving at Norfolk with about the same amount of fuel as loading 7200 lbs (full mains) did.

Having said that, the ATSB seem to have addresssed most of Mr Davies points in their reopened report. The fuel calculations they have made for different scenarios and at different points of the flight are more comprehensive than in the original report.
