Plenty, but nothing official! Just the usual internet rumours and comments from alleged experts...

Government.  If you think the problems they create are bad, you should see their solutions.

Latest Bournemouth Echo article  :shock:  :

http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/9 ... must_stop/

Several questions instantly arise :

1. Why is aircraft wreckage still to be found on the site - Shouldn't ALL of it been collected for the Crash Investigators to do thier job ?
2. Why hasn't the area been hosed down to dissipate fuel/oil spillage and smoke dyes ? (OK - some soil is being removed according to the article)
3. Why are all the impact areas left open, maybe a local farmer should have ploughed the area before re-opening the area to the general public ?

In late 70's early 80's I FOD plodded a Harrier mid air, we walked the site 2-3 times recovering items but the public were still handing bits in months later. I doubt they have deliberately left bits lying around - some get buried and some are thrown into the most unlikely places. As I said on another forum I don't think it would even occur to some that the bit they may take home could be vital in identifying what went wrong.

I suspect the last thing they want to do is wash any fluids into the nearby river.
