Bullpucky, not! In WWII the allied pilots and flight crews that
flew the large bombers loaded to capacity with bombs to distant
tragets they never visited or even heard of before, often under
the cover of darkness and clouds, didn't have much more actual
flying experience than Kennedy Jr had.

When I was learning to fly in a Cessna 172, my instructor put
the plane in a spin and a spiral so that I could distinguish
between the two and be able to recover from them. When I
expressed concerns that such violent moves may rip the plane's
wings off, my instructor, who also did aerobatics, reassured me
that this was impossible. Of course if my wing support strut was
tampered with, this would explain why JFK Jr's wing was found a
good distance away as you say.

According to another interpretion of what happened that is based
on witness testimony, not like yours which is based simply on
the official account (and we know just how unreliable these can
be when it comes to UFO incidents!) there apparently was an
explosion. A reporter for the Vineyard Gazette newspaper told
WCVB-TV in Boston that he was out walking Friday night about the
time of the crash and saw "big white flash in the sky" off
Philbin Beach (see URL below).

According to this same URL, visibility at the time was reported
to be 8 miles, clear enough to fly without instruments. If these
claims are correct, then it could not have been any one of your
7 things - or all of them combined - that led to this fatal
crash (which I suspect was an assassination of another Kennedy
and another attack on freedom in America).

Ignoring or discounting any eyewitness testimony because it
conflicts with the official account does not help in our search
for the truth but it does serve the goals of debunkers who don't
want us to give further attention to something important, such
as UFOs and other cover-ups.
