I'm delighted to have found this board. I've been a professional freelance writer and editor for the last nine years.

There have been a number of accidents involving the ignition of vapours in aircraft fuel tanks. Airplanes generate large amounts of entropy when in service. There is an uncontrolled risk of an explosion. For a tank, the entropy density does not go on increasing forever. There is a maximum entropy. Above this maximal entropy the entropy is again zero and the energy density increases toward maximum. This condition (false vacuum) can easily be met in a fuel tank ullage before an explosion. This scenario leads to an explosion, when the false vacuum state finally ends. The explosion is a complete surprise to the crew.

While the accident airplane was being fueled at JFK the fuel system's automatic VSO (volumetric shutoff) activated due to fuel weathering before the fuel tanks were full. A mechanic "overode" the safety system and finished fueling manually.
Conclusion: the vents of the fuel tanks were closed and left closed.

The flight was delayed because of fuel weathering. Official: a disabled piece of ground equipment (a fleet service vehicle was blocking the accident airplane at the gate) and concerns about a suspected passenger/baggage mismatch (the missing passenger was on board the whole time).

The TWA 800 arrow of time.
1. Refueling, fuel weathering due to entropy, long wait for the stabilization of fuel.
2. Due to permanent fuel weathering the vents at the Main Tank № 4 and Reserve Tank № 4 were left closed.
3. time about 20:19 - The airplane became airborne.
4. time 20:25:41 - Boston ARTCC: "TWA 800 climb and maintain [19,000 feet] and expedite trough [15,000 feet]."
5. time 20:27:47 - The airplane reached its assignated altitude.
- Fuel weathering.
- Reserve Tank № 1, Main Tank № 1, Main Tank № 2, Main Tank № 3 overfilled, streak of light.
- Reserve Tank № 4 overpressured, decay of the false vacuum.
- Right wing on fire, Main Tank № 4 overheated and overpressured.
6. time 20:29:15 - The captain: "Look at that crazy fuel flow indicator there on number four . . . see that?"
7. time about 20:30 - Main Tank № 4 overpressured, in the Main Tanks № 1, № 2 and № 3 fuel weathering, engines № 1, № 2 and № 3 power loss,
- Lose height.
- Fuel leak from the Reserve Tank № 4 penetrated the fuselage.
8. time 20:30:15 - Boston ARTCC: "TWA800 climb and maintain [15,000 feet].”
- The captain: "climb thrust!"
9. time 20:30:25 - The captain: "climb thrust!"
10. time 20:30:35 - The flight engineer: "power's set!" (on fire?)
11.time 20:30:42 - Movement in the cockpit. Decay of the false vacuum in the CWT, explosion.
- The CVR recorded a "very loud sound".
12. time 20:31:12 - The CVR recording ended.

Almost ten years after the crash, many people still have questions about what caused this tragedy. Thus aviation engineering cannot abolish the entropy law and arrow of time.

I am an ex aero engineer and worked on Concorde during its UK mid life up date,I believe I can help with so misconceptions regarding gliders, even those designed for sst travel or high altitude travel

well im from the Uk and i am currently trying to find some good forums and this one really looks like the BIZ.. i hope to find more people who are interested in the things i am and learn more about other peoples views on subjects.. like the moon ladning which is a hot topic in my head at the moment

I am looking to find out about spontaneous combustion. I will be contributing real life accounts of witnesses and hoping to discover wether it is an act of god or scientificly linked

Hello, I too am a fellow believer of the Governments involvements in many things in conjunction with it's plan to rule with the New world Order.

I've been involved in anomaly research for over 30 years and have my own web site dedicated to personal research.

My methodology is rather obscure and innovative, which should prove of some interest to this site. Your diverse membership will also provide valuable feedback.

I'm an open minded individual, always interested in new perspectives. I've enjoyed ATS and would like to occasionally participate, answer questions, provide new links, but mostly learn new ideas and interesting things from the outstanding members.

There are many interesting topics that I feel I would like to contribute to as they interest me.

Very interested in COMINT prior to 1992? Some of the most exciting and original thinking went into this field. And I want to know what and how it was done.
