In order for a spark to have caused that there would have had to have been fuel VAPORS to ignite. Jet Fuel itself will not explode like that. The fuel will BURN but not EXPLODE. I was a jet mech in the Marine Corps and at our A School the instructor literally tossed a llit match into a can of JP-5 and the match went out. He then took a glass JAR of JP-4 (JP-5 is used in Naval air because it is not as voliltile as JP-4 which is used in the Air Force) about half full and put it outside in the sunlight, within 10 mins it exploded from the sunlight heating the fuel enough to cause the vapors to explode.

I wish you luck finding documentation to prove this, but I was home from work that day and clearly remember watching a report on CNN just after the incident, where a Major or Lieutenant Colonel (based on USAF rank insignia - it was definitely a cluster, but hard to say which color) wearing a flight suit was interviewed and described seeing a contrail and bright light going up towards the aircraft.
I never saw that interview again and have never heard any mention of it since.

If the evidence was so overwhelming, why did 150 separate witnesses all describe seeing the same thing? They all saw something similar to the above testimony,

At the top of this page is a link to a bunch of redacted FBI interview reports dealing with these so-called eye-witnesses.
They all read like a bunch of wacko\'s calling up days later with stories that made no sense, and had no collaboration.
Phoney witness report
