    Also, _if_ that piece of debris played a major role, the cascade of course
    didn't start at impact, but at the time where the piece fell off the tank.
    There you'd have already your first combination of causes (ET insulation
    issue + wing sensitivity to impacts). And that wouldn't even adress the
    question _why_ it fell off.
