    Isn't it true that almost all of the plane was recovered there?

    Some people I know are arguing no plane crashed there because they say there's hardly any debris there but I heard somewhere that most of the plane was recovered.

    Wow, didn't know it was that much! Where was most of it, in the woods?

    I imagine most of the plane hit the ground....well....maybe all of it hit the ground....nose first.....and blew the fuck up. So I'm sure some of it burned....but the metal parts were all there.....mutilated all to hell.

    Gravity can be a bitch sometimes.

    It looks like 5% of it burned to unrecoverable pieces. Did they find most of the recovered pieces in the woods? Wasn't an engine found in the woods?

    No it was found in hole, just as most of the plane was found in the hole.

    lighter parts were scattered around the site

    Oh you mean most of the plane was found beneath the crater?

    the area was a reclaimed strip mine, most of it was landfill and as such was soft ground
    so, much like ValuJet Flight 592 that crashed into the everglades, most of it sunk into the ground
    ValuJet Flight 592 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    now the landfill wasn't as soft as the everglades, but I'm saying that in a similar manor, the plane embedded into the ground
