Image Parameter Details
Comments: These Images were taken at SAS on July 5th by a very skilled expert as Federico Manzini (in cooperation with FOAM13 director Roberto Crippa). A rotational gradient elaboration clearly shows a quite strong jet at P.A. of about 270°. A similar elaboration made at the same F.Manzini and L.Comolli on images taken at Merate confirmed the reality of this morfological feature. The same jet apparently disappeared 24 h after and was not easily confirmed before the impact: so a connection with the impact shock shoould not be excluded.
