Description A plane crash which killed a prominent 9-11 truther, Beverly Eckert

Colgan Air Flight 3407, a scheduled passenger flight from Newark, New Jersey, to Buffalo, New York crashed due on February 12, 2009 killing all on board, including prominent 9-11 truther, Beverly Eckert.

Official narrative

The NTSB determined that the aircraft, a Bombardier Dash-8 Q400, entered an aerodynamic stall from which it did not recover and crashed into a house in Clarence Center, New York at 10:17 p.m. EST (03:17 UTC), killing all 49 passengers and crew on board, and one person inside the house where it crashed.[1] The black boxes were found.[2]

Concerns

Mark Gorton suggests was Colgan Air Flight 3407 was targeted because Beverly Eckert was aboard. He argues that it was "most likely... one in a long line of plane crashes used to kill high profile threats to the criminal syndicate at the heart of the national security state."[3]

As well as Beverly Eckert, also aboard the flight was Alison Des Forges, an expert on the Rwandan genocide.[4]

Sudden onset

Neither the controller nor the pilot showed concern that anything was out of the ordinary as the airplane was asked to fly at 2,300 feet. A recording of communication between the doomed plane and the Buffalo, N.Y. airport suggests the pilot was calm just moments before the commuter plane crashed into a house, killing everyone on board and one in the Clarence, N.Y. home.[2]

Update on NTSB investigation into crash of Colgan Air Dash-8 near Buffalo, New York NTSB advisory, March 25, 2009 "The data indicate a likely separation of the airflow over the wing and ensuing roll two seconds after the stick shaker activated while the aircraft was slowing through 125 knots and while at a flight load of 1.42 Gs. The predicted stall speed at a load factor of 1 G would be about 105 knots." Wikipedia notes: The predicted stall speed for this aircraft at a flight load of 1.42 Gs would be about 125 kts which is arrived at by multiplying 105 kts (the predicted stall speed at 1 G) by 1.19164 (the square root of the flight load in Gs).
