As no black box was handed over Dooley recorded an open verdict, saying: "Problems with direct witnesses and problems with the black box have only resulted in vague guesses as to what happened with this crash. All we have are possibilities rather than probabilities. I don't believe any further efforts could have been made to obtain any further information."
"There is no evidence suggesting an engine failure, or a nose dive, although I cannot be sure without looking at the plane" he said, adding: "essentially, it fell out of the sky."
"He said he didn't want to fly with him anymore. He said if it wasn't for the fact they could see where they were going, they wouldn't ever get anywhere because Philemotte couldn't read the instruments."
