In the recent crash of Turkish Airlines flight TK1951 at Schipol investigators have concluded that a false radio altimeter alert caused the auto throttles to retard engines whilst the aircraft was still in flight short of the runway.

Dutch investigators have not explained why the radio altimeter gave a false alert and refuse to investigate the possibility that a cell phone inside the aircraft either responded to an incoming call, or that a passenger made a call on approach.

Those in the industry are so touchy on the subject that they remove all posts and threads on aviation forums as words of heresy.

If the investigation was so objective and thorough then why are they scared to debate it and as air travellers aren't you entitled to know ?
