That's important to note....because at that distance....a 747 is barely visible to anyone standing on the beach. Just above 13-thousand-feet, the center fuel tank... under the passenger cabin exploded...and a ring of the fuselage peeled away. In seconds, the 747's nose broke off and... investigators believe the large fully loaded fuel tank in the right wing ruptured and began leaking fuel. Without its nose for balance the plane's tail dropped. With all four engines still running investigators say it's likely the decapitated plane continued to climb trailing a stream of burning fuel. At a distance of ten miles it's quite possible THAT looked like an ascending streak of light or a missile.
The shattered plane finally tipped over and and the badly damaged fuel tank in the right wing let go. That investigators say....produced the fireball or the explosion witnesses reported.))
