Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see one diffuser case, one turbine wheel, a few fuel hoses, one fuel or oil valve, some electric cabling and a little bit of fuselage

I could fit it in one large suitcase

the point of the makers of the film was that that was ALL the wreckage that existed.  now compare that to another airplane wreckage and you'll find that there isn't a lot here

where's the rest of the seats, engines, fuselage, luggage, etc?  I don't even see little bits of them on the ground

and look at the cable spools - they look intact

How many times do you change the story? First you claimed there was no wreckage. Then that there was no sign of the engines. Then that the plane is claimed to have been vaporized literally (torn to molecules), rather than little pieces. Having shown you examples against all three (wreckage pieces both large and small, engine pieces, lots of small pieces lying on the grass), now you shift to claim that my examples are "all". (And no that large piece in my other picture comment is not from the bow.) Well if you would check my links at last, you'd see a couple of other photos, and those are again only brought up as examples in longer aticles. I also posted more photos of structural parts down below. (And these pieces definitely don't fit into a suitcase.)

Here we go again - the difference between a physicist and an engineer

physicist:  none =0.000000

engineer:  0 ± 1 or 2

by none, I meant not a lot.  You don't even have enough parts to build 1/10 of an engine there.  there are 2 engines.  about 150 seats and at least 100 people with their baggage.  (other engineers would understand that, by the way.)

looking at the diffuser case, I am surprised that the injectors were knocked right out of their holes.  they're fastened pretty tight in there.  all of them seemed to be gone too.  pretty extraordinary.
