    One story says it crashed on a peak and the other says at the waterfront. Which is it?

    Hello Samanthy if you read the newspaper in question it gives a generalization of the waterfront but further down in the next paragraph shows that plane cashed into the Tipan peak. I do agree the reporter was rather misleading on how he wrote the article. However if you look at the context the waterfront is below the peak which is on the waterfront.

    Other than that your guess is good as mine.

    Hello Jeff

    Thanks for Newspaper reports. Just goes to show if you want to get closer to the truth you need to read as many newspaper versions as possible. Each newspaper editing has little to be desired. But it goes to show much each newspaper version changes.

    its a bit like understanding what politicians promise before getting elected.....

    Yep ! That's why I say every Treasure Tale needs to be Believed ! & Researched !

    to Separate Fact from Fiction, Because they are all Based on some Fact.

    If a Person just Decides "Fake" it's like expecting the Lottery is Rigged Because
    they bought a Ticket Once & Didn't win .
