NTSB "Not Ruling Anything Out" In Miami Plane Crash
The regional director of the NTSB just held a newsconference in Miami stating that he is "not ruling anything out" as a possibility for the origin of the crash today of the seaplane into Biscayne Bay. He urged anyone who has any type of picture (still or otherwise) to contact the local NTSB office in Miami, and gave a local phone number in the (305) area code.
A photo taken approximately 1/2 a mile away from the crash today reveals a large plume of black smoke emminating downward from the sky into the Biscayne Bay in the path of the downed plane.
It is now official that 20 passengers have confirmed to have been on board, and ONLY 19 have been recovered. Given that the Biscayne Bay is very shallow, this could mean one of two things. First, it was an infant that cannot be found. Second, that someone blew themselves up on the plane (this is our guess, not that of the NTSB).
As of now, the NTSB and other official investigators are working with the US Coast Guard reviewing "security tapes" for the flight prior to its take off in Miami. Additionally, they are looking at information regarding security issues of the plane in its previous venue, Ft Lauderdale.
