  1. What puzzles me is why there is a clear debris field containing seats, luggage, bodies, engines etc., yet the ‘crash’ site of United 93 contained nothing but churned earth. Bearing in mind also that MH17 exploded mid-flight at 33,000ft (6.25 miles), which would’ve resulted in a finer, wider and more sparse debris field than that of an aeroplane that went down whole, as we’re led to believe United 93 did.
