Radar Data

Independent investigators have received 2 sets of radar data from the NSTB as the result of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.  The first one, received in 1999 covered the time period from 8:02 pm until 8:47pm.  The second set, received in August 2001 and consisting of 2 CDs, covered an expanded time period from 8:02 to 8:27 and from 8:55 to 11:00 pm.  Missing, with no explanation was the time period from 8:47 to 8:55. Following are links to the actual data and some explanation of the files, which is more than the NTSB gave us.

Exhibit 22cAnalysis of NTSB Exhibit 22c -  The recently released radar data has been compared with the NTSB's trajectory study in Exhibit 22c and a careful analysis shows that Exhibit 22c is internally inconsistent. Two different graphs in Exhibit 22c show widely different times for Flight 800 to be in the air.  The graph (figure 10) which shows the CIA/NTSB simulation of the aircraft climbing (like a streaking missile) shows the aircraft was airborne for more than 53 seconds. The graph (figure 18) which shows the radar track from the Islip ASR-8 radar shows 9 radar hits which equal 42.2 seconds.  A careful sweep by sweep analysis of the raw radar data has shown that there were only 8 radar hits which equals 37.5 seconds.  This leaves more than 15 seconds unaccounted for.  If the aircraft fell in a ballistic arc from the initial explosion, it would have hit the water after 8 radar sweeps.  If the aircraft did a "zoom climb" as postulated by the CIA and NTSB simulations, it would have been at 15,000 ft or 8,000 ft. after Sweep 8 and should have still been visible on radar for another 16 seconds, or 3-4 radar sweeps.  It was not.  Because it was already in the water.
