Letter to the Witness Group from NTSB Chairman, Marion Blakey
by Victor Trombettas
Back in late December 2001, several of the eyewitnesses to the crash to flight 587 were very concerned that their claims of inflight fires and explosions (many before the separation of the vertical stabilizer) were being largely ignored.
In early January, they held a press conference where they read a statement to the Press announcing they had sent a letter to the NTSB Board stating their willingness to testify at the first public hearing; they also mentioned in that letter they had identified 18 other witnesses to inflight fires.
Below is Chariman Blakey's response dated March 1, 2002.
