Thanks for the reading too, Lou. "So many questions" as one tenor there .. just like in the forums, huh?  :)
Sadly, TWA 800 is another example of the learning process in aviation which often enough causes some tragic outcome in the first place and, later, some learning and changes.
I remember some crash investigator getting quoted with "aviation is a constant consideration of security needs and the costs for it". Do you remember the first years of the DC-10 for example?  :-[

Concerning the plane shown in your pic. "engine that converted gasoline directly into noise" sounds really good, but I think she's not alone in the skies (although nowadays, she would be more or less).
