Now, as some have raised some questions about this following part, I have some serious questions as well!
I am building a small two place airplane in my garage and I use basically the same techniques and the same materials at the Boeing does.
My airplane, just like the Boeing is of aluminum 6061-T6 monocoque construction riveted together with aircraft grade rivets.
Now, you have to realize that airplane aluminum sheets are very light and flimsy when not riveted together but it is the way they are folded, placed
and riveted together that gives them great strenght for minimum weight.
So just imagine for a second that you have a sheet on aluminum foil stappled to a 2x4 piece of wood for a second.
Now, pull on that sheet of aluminum and see what happens.
The aluminum foil will likely rip at the stappled locations and create large dimples and large wrinkles were the stapples were.
However, this part shown above seems to have been drilled out of it's location, the rivet holes seen all over the part show no stress and the part is
often ripped completely around the rivets while the rivet locations are left undamaged.
You see, every time you drill a sheet of aluminum or every time you scratch that sheet, you create what is called a stress riser.
When exposed to stress, that part will most likely break or tear at it's weakest location, namely where the stress risers are.
Let's zoom in on a specific part of that debris here:
Now, look closely as there has been a rip going all around the rivet locations, the rivets were gently lifted out of theri holes or the rivet head
were torn out without damaging the area around the holes.
Do you see what I mean?
If you do the same with a sheet of aluminum foil stappled to a 2x4, as you pull on the sheet to remove it, the stappled part will either rip and
remain on the 2x4 or there will be severe damage done to the sheet where the stapples were.
Just do this yourself at home:
Stapple a piece of aluminum to a piece of wood and try to remove the sheet without severely damaging the sheet where the stapples are located - it
just can't be done.
Now, look at the next zoomed in rivet locations:
Here again, the rivet holes are not even dented around!
It is obvious to me that this debris was not ripped off it's location by some explosive force but it was drilled out and planted there on the
Still, there are literraly 40 or 50 different rivet locations that were completely undamaged as this part was taken off the aircraft.
You might say that the force of the explosion was so brutal and sudden that this is exactly why those rivet holes were left undamaged.
But if the explosion was so powerful, can you explain to me why that part looks completely free of suet and it appears to not have been exposed to any
sort of heat or fire damage?
And again, why is it that this part was found later but it can't be seen anywhere on the following picture taken almost immediately after the first
fire trucks arrived?
See any parts on this lawn?
Where is that big ass part seen later on?
Guees, I can't see any aircraft debris here, can you?
There are other debris which look very suspicious to me and I will get into those later on .... stay tuned!
Same Pepe channel, same Pepe time!
