RC:It could have been. That's what we computed?
RC:—'cause they got it from us.
TT:Let's go a step further from there. So you passed that report up, and was that the end of it as far as any of your involvement?
TT:You never heard back? No one asked you for any additional information?
RC:[Shaking head no] "It's going to be looked into."
TT:That was the general response?

I don't know if that's an accurate recall by him but he said in the debriefing he didn't tell anybody that, because nobody asked. But he almost got the impression that the debriefing was more like to tell the crew what happened, you know what I mean? Because from the pilot and the co-pilot's point of view they were told all kinds of things that we haven't been able to
