    Correct. Analysis of wreckage to determine structural failure sequencing of a fuel tank has nothing to do with that.

    Having thousands of hours in the field of engineering and being selected as a member of the NTSB's Metallurgy Structures/Sequencing Group should get you some respect though, don't you think?

    Forget I ever mentioned it. You probably voted for Trump too.

    All I want to know is....How do you fit this fuel tank into a carry-on baggage locker ? And, once there is it a safety issue ?
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

    No need for insults, especially that one. I'm just choosing to believe in the known facts. Trump voters believe whatever they want to believe.

    Post #45. Trying to make a point, but it went off the rails.

    The "alternative facts" is what you are choosing to believe in, which is why I figured you voted for him also.

    Once LittleBob said, he will not count his forum entries, numbers are completely unimportant. But as we all know, numbers do count. 2 goals (Denmark) are better than nada!
    Back on topic. And welcome to the good side, the boring side, the "senior" side.

    My opinion? - If a MacBook Pro is your one and only computer and you lose it because your life is more important for you, then you might seem like an idiot. But in real life, you are the hero, who ensures that a/c evacuation limit times can be fulfilled. For an A380, imho less than 90 seconds must be enough. And on German TV they showed that this is possible. But you jump out of the emergency exits as you are, without portable computers, of course.

    As Evan says, for the unlikely case. Aviation is much safer than the way to the airport.
    LH also has a intercontinental history, the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955.
    A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.

    Aviation enthusiast since more than 30 years. Almost a decade here on this platform.

    My parlour theory- the outer skin is blown out because the tank inside of it blew out...

    One other comment- Bobby's insistence that the tank did not explode is awfully absolute...

    Because Bobby has stood inside the reconstructed tank and has seen it with his own eyes. P.S. LH, "As Evan says, for the unlikely case. Aviation is much safer than the way to the airport." I said that not Evan.

    As long as it's been filled with nitrogen, no.

    I understand your opinion.

    I respect your opinion.

    I tend to disagree with your opinion...

    BECAUSE

    ...it LOOKS like a pretty decent blow out on the underside of the planes's outer skin. (Just outside of and around the center fuel tank)

    BUT

    I am not as absolute about this as you NOR Evan.

    Same with politics...don't love The Donald...but didn't like how Hillary erased emails and went after certain 'me-too' folks and called half the country deplorable...again, far from absolute support, but yeah, I voted for el Dom de Trumpo.
