According to focus magazine, the Braunschweiger Bundesstelle für Flugunfalluntersuchung is investigating the possibility of sabotage in the downing of the Robinson. Wolfgang Haupt, 34, the owner , had received numerous death threats in the weeks before the crash. He was the owner of an IT company specialising in Artificial Intelligence and facial recognition.. Wreckage was strewn over a 200m radius and the BBF is investigating whether there could have been a deliberate explosion before the crash: walkers in the area report hearing a loud "bang".

Already denied by public prosecutor. The accident investigation authority sees no indications for such scenario.

Doubtless the investigating authorities are considering every possibility. But, given the reports that wreckage was strewn across a large area - suggesting a mid-flight break-up - it would be smart to at least consider and investigate the possibility of sabotage, should it be established threats had previously been made. Seems a bit too early, for me, for anyone to push for any ruling-in, or ruling-out. Time will tell, maybe. In such early days it is worth everyone keeping an open mind, I suggest.
