Of course.  And even for the blindingly obvious cases there will
always be at least one person who disagrees, otherwise the article
would not exist in the first place.

You can't legislate Clue, unfortunately.

However, I'd say notability is pretty explicit about the mere
existence of sources not being an indicator if inherent notability. In
this case there is no true secondary source, since the FAA and the
press reports are both primary.
