The name of the president is irrelevant. Pulse 1 did not say the 747 crew saw 'what caused the tyre to shred' he said they saw fire BEFORE the Concorde reached the metal strip.

Which should tell one something about how unbiased the report was to start with...

How could they conceivably affirm that ? Do you have any source ? And if so how credible is their assertion ? They were 1+ km where this happened !

On this one I would agree - is there any rationale given for that conclusion ?

You have read the report I take it. Assuming that you have you will have noted that it was concluded that the tyre was CUT (not worn away) and that the cut matched the shape of the metal strip.
I prefer to rely on facts rather than conspiracy theories or maybe it was JFK ?

You could try asking the guy that actually posted it. He's called Pulse 1.

I merely pointed out that atacacs had not read what Pulse 1 actually posted. Or what I posted either - see my post below.

Do keep up.

Ask the guy who posted it, not me. You're as bad as Buster in not reading who posted what.
