Re: Eyewitnesses...

Witnesses about an air crash should be taken with a pitch of salt - and anyway witnesses on the ground can usually just see the latest moments of a crash.

For example, an engine may fail and get fire *after* the loss of control because the air flow inside it is no longer within the acceptable parameters. When an airplane exceeds the maximum speed, it can start to sustain structural failures.

So, listen to them, they may still have valuable info, but look for real evidences.
