She was a very experienced investigator of plane crashes. Funk first tries to put the wreckage of the plane together to understand what caused this horrendous collision.

While the idea of having a perfectly shaped outline of the plane into the building is very appealing, it is simply impossible. As a plane impacts into a hard concrete building, it starts to break apart and losing its wings is not uncommon. 6.6. Flight 93 was shot down Many claim that debris from United Flight 93, recovered up to 10 miles from the impact crater is evidence that the plane was shot down.

We live in an “information and communications” age in which is it paramount to comprehend the role that communication plays and how it can affect what surrounds it. During the early hours of Saturday, March 8th 2014, a passenger flight carrying 239 passengers heading to China disappeared. It is difficult to comprehend that a plane that voluminous could disappear without leaving any trace behind. To this day, flight MH370 has yet to be found. A few months after the disappearance of MH370, another Malaysia Airlines (MAS) passenger flight MH17, was shot down by rogue elements near the Ukrainian-Russian border killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board.

Although the technology of today’s age has advanced since 1986, Ms. Cousino believes that a similar event could unfold today. Space vehicles today have advanced, but an underlying possibility that a similar event could occur stays prominent. NASA has done
On September 11, 2001, a group of terrorists hijacked four American passenger airliners. Two of the planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City, New York, while a third crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.

I believe that if that last plane would had made it to Washington, the American culture may not have made it.
