well how come it never talks about the thing that it hit? according to logic, if two things collide in midair, two things fall.
in this case, the mystery object was most likely much stronger than the plane, which would explain why the engine block split in half (somebody said that right?). anyway, my take is that the plane was rammed very hard from the underside towards the front; i.e. the object was traveling in the opposite direction and climbing when it hit the plane. i'm guessing the reddish substance is some kind of radar absorbing material that coated the mystery object. does anyone know if they did a chemical analysis on the "aluminum"? that would be helpful in determining if the substance is man made or "alien" (or something the military hasn't released yet).
so does UAV stand for unidentified ariel vehicle or unmanned ariel vehicle? about the disentigration... it would have had to break into very, very small pieces in order for the wreakage not to be noticed. like dust sized.
As for the disentigration I do know
Instead, prompted by the factual report and by the interest it is generating, they have taken the unusual step this month of reclaiming the aircraft wreckage from the insurance company and shipped it to the Washington area for a closer inspection.

Federal investigators have decided to take another look at the plane due to intense interest in how this plane was brought down.....
Thank you for the update, I am curious as to the outcome of this investigation.

The theories continue to range from collision with a drug runners plane to a drone aircraft to a terrorist fired missle.
Even these theories don't seem to go far enough to explain the damage. This will be an interesting one to follow.
I'm more of the opinion of an impact with an asteroid. An asteroid would have been traveling at a such a speed that it would be virtually impossible for the pilot to avoid it. Either that or a military black project.
and BTW, it has a turbine engine, so the concept of an "engine block" is not realy acurate.

NothingMakesSense: Military black project is more likely IMO...
Duke_Nukem: One thing that nags at me is that over a year after 9-11 you have an area that has not had Radar coverage for several months. Good place to fly things you don't want tracked.
