Re: Should we re-open the investigation into Jim's plane crash?
You brought all this up before Rodney, and it was shot down by Bill Larson, Jim's charter pilot (as well as a veteran pilot of 30 years experience flying for Eastern Airlines). HE WAS THERE that day and was the first to get airborne after Jim's plane disappeared from radar. He nows EXACTLY what equipment Berry Field was equipped with. I wish you would quit posting misinformation on this subject. It just confuses people.
Furthermore, the storm was NOT off to Jim's RIGHT, and he was NOT advised to turn southwest.
You are also forgetting that there is precise information in my book gleaned from the OFFICIAL government accident report specifically stating the size of the storm, etc.
I appreciate your interest in the subject but your conjecture contradicts known facts.
