133. An FBI team was
securing the perimiter, and witnessed by Eveleth-Virginia airport personnel, no more than 45 minutes after the crash was confirmed. The FBI had not been notified of a crash. The agents were from Minneapolis/St Paul, not the closer Duluth. The FBI has since been evasive about the arrival of the team, even moving the time back to 3:30.

Since the FBI contingent came from Minneapolis, it must have departed no later than 9:30 AM to make it to Duluth around 10:50 AM and arrive at the scene by noon. Remarkable, considering the crash only occurred at 10:20 and was verified at 11:00. So they were heading north to cover a crash that had yet to occur at approximately the same time that plane was taking off. And again, the FBI had not been notified of a crash.

The aircraft used by Wellstone is often equipped with black boxes. None were said to have been recovered.

The fuselage burned for hours emitting blue smoke. The aircraft's kerosene fuel, which was stored in tanks in its wings, should have emitted thick, black smoke instead. Why was the fuselage burning rather than the wings, especially when the wings were found separated from the fuselage?

The NTSB investigator was a 10-year veteran of the CIA.

The crash occured on the last day Wellstone's name could be removed from the ballot.
