 TWA flight 800

On July 17, 1996, TWA Flight 800 exploded over the Atlantic Ocean near Long Island, killing all 230 people on board. The National Transportation Safety Board concluded that the most likely cause of the disaster was a center fuel tank explosion sparked by exposed wiring. In their subsequent coverage, the media focused heavily on the fact that TWA's airline fleet was among the oldest in service. The flight was under the command of Captain Steven Snyder, a veteran TWA pilot.


In June, 2013 six of the original investigators of the crash of Flight 800 denounced the official incident report, saying that it was a cover-up. They said that the eyewitness reports of a missile striking the aircraft should not have been discounted, and that the evidence at the time indicated that the explosive force came from outside of the aircraft, not from an explosion of the center wing tank as the official report claimed. Much of the original evidence contradicting the official report was presented in a March 11, 1997 story by Press Enterprise.
