can't tell anybody that it took three seconds, we know it didn't take longer than three seconds. If it took a second then it's going to go a lot faster, if it took a second and a half, but we had no way of knowing exactly how long it took, and neither did the crew, I mean the crew, from what I remember—
TT:What do you recall? I mean, walk through what you remember the crew telling you after.
RC:Alright. What I remember is that they said that it went from one side to the other side. It wasn't "in the blink of an eye," they didn't put it that way, but it was something like "almost instantaneously." I can't remember the exact words, but you know, they said it was here and then boom it's there [indicating locations with hand].

I don't care what anybody says, there is no other explanation for that [indicating scope photos]. I mean, I don't believe that we have the technology today to do what that
TT:We're still building airplanes.
TT:And like you said, good credible witness testimony.
