Post New info on the Concorde crash?

I heard a roumor about the causes of the concorde crash, something like this:
Too much fuel, out of ballance, washer missing on one main wheel witch caused it to pull to one side and hitting a pole on the side of the runway (causing the tire to burst), rotating to early due to an aircraft on the runway, shutting down the wrong engine....

Have you heard anything close to this? or have you discussed it before? or where can I find more info?

Kind regards.

Oden, here's the link to an earlier discussion on here....Concorde UK Observer Article.

Another way to find out if something has been discussed on PPRuNe before rather than an exploratory post, is to use the "Search" facility at the top of the page, or set your browser view back about a month.

Anyway, shutting this one down now, as it's a duplicate.
