What doomed Flight 587 and 265 people?

Airbus A-300, N14053-Flight 587

On November 12, 2001, American Airlines flight 587, an Airbus A300-600 on a scheduled flight to Santo Domingo, crashed into a neighborhood in Belle Harbor, New York shortly after takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport, killing all 260 persons aboard and 5 on the ground. The plane's vertical stabilizer and rudder and both engines separated from the aircraft before it impacted the ground.

The NTSB will release its final report on the crash tomorrow, October 26th. It will likely say that it was extreme rudder maneuvers made by the flight 587 pilot in order to avoid wake vortices generated behind Japan Airlines flight 47 that led to the separation of the vertical stabilizer and rudder thus causing the crash.

U.S.Read.com has collected numerous eyewitness accounts and other information that suggests the NTSB is wrong in its conclusion(s).

Canada's National Post ran a story on August 27th, written by Stewart Bell, about information that was gathered from an Al Qaeda operative, Mohammed Mansour Jabarah. This article revealed that there was a belief at the top levels of Al Qaeda (no later than May 2002) that a shoe bomber had downed American Airlines Flight 587.
