Pierre Salinger is 'totally sure' a missile was the cause, here is a cnn piece on it.
and a site by the associated retired aviation professionals, states the fuel tank explosion explanation is not credible.
some eyewitness accounts, stating they saw an object ascending towards the plane. 'and I didn't see a theory.' states one witness
some cover up allegations
I will post more links later. For now I will give my two bits. I remember the day it happened and heard witnesses describe the ascending object.
After that day, the witness accounts pretty much vanished. But it is clear in my memory what I heard that day. So, I kept an eye on the story for a
while and read some pretty damning accusations. The Pierre Salinger view is pretty well-researched from what I recall. The story I really want to
find is about the residue found on a seat cushion that a man spirited away and had a friend test at a lab. His friend said it was rocket fuel. The
evidence was seized, and he was told later it was just the adhesive that holds the cushions to the frame. So, he did some sleuthing of his own and
his research showed that the adhesive they used was a completely different colour than the residue he had taken to be analyzed. It is hard to imagine
that a lab would mistake rocket fuel for glue, and also, why was it a totally different colour? Salinger knows the navy activity in the area that
day, and it doesn't look very good for them. If I recall, he says they fired a missile at a drone, and it found a bigger target.... not good.
edit: the last link has the seat cushion story. It is very suspicious behaviour that the authorities were up to in this article, they don't look
very interested in finding out the truth, but more like they are interested in declaring the truth.
