17 years after TWA flight number 800 went down in the waters outside of New York City, a group of investigators now say what we know about the failed flight is far from the truth.

Flight 800 was scheduled for a New York-to-Paris flight on July 17th, 1996. Minutes after takeoff from JFK Airport the plane caught fire and crashed killing all 230 people on board. The National Transportation Safety Board, NTSB, said static electricity ignited fuel fumes outside of a poorly designed fuel tank that led to the explosion. However, skeptics said they didn't believe it.

And now new revelations may support once-thought to be only conspiracy theorist claims. A handful of aviation experts, including a number of investigators who were part of the original probe of Flight 800 are releasing a documentary saying that evidence indicates a missile caused the plane crash off the coast of Long Island.

The group is made up of people who worked for the National Transportation Safety Board, TWA and the Airline Pilots Association, all of whom have since retired. All six say that the evidence shows the plane was brought down by a projectile traveling at a high speed.

Those investigators say many witnesses' statements about the crash have been ignored.
Some have theorized that one of the reasons the crash results were covered up is to perpetuate the US' military industrial complex. The M.I.C. as some have called it is a powerful force that is hard to stop or control according to some experts.

Investigators have filed a formal petition to reopen the probe into what happened to TWA Flight 800. The documentary is set to air on July 17th on the anniversary of the crash.

It was part of the plan to get the U.S. to go fight in the sand. When that wasn't enough, 9/11 made sure we would go. The gov. wanted to have a war. So they created a reason.
And this is NOT old news.......

The Crash Of TWA Flight 800 Cover Up

The producers of an upcoming documentary on TWA Flight 800—which exploded and crashed into the waters off of Long Island on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 people on board—claim to have proof that an explosion outside the Paris-bound flight caused the crash. And six former investigators who took part in the film say there was a cover-up, and want the case reopened.


"There was a lack of coordination and willful denial of information," Hank Hughes, a senior accident investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board, said Wednesday during a conference call with reporters. "There were 755 witnesses. At no time was information provided by the witnesses shared by the FBI."

Jim Speer, an accident investigator for the Airline Pilots Association who sifted through the recovered wreckage in a hangar, said he discovered holes formed consistent by a high-energy blast in the right wing, and requested it be tested for explosives. When the test came back positive, he said, he was "physically removed" from a room by two CIA agents.

After a four-year investigation, the NTSB concluded the plane, which had just taken off from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport, was destroyed by a center fuel tank explosion likely caused by a spark from faulty wiring.

But according to Tom Stalcup, a co-producer of the documentary, the investigators have new "radar and forensic evidence proving that one or more ordinance explosions outside the aircraft caused the crash." The film, will premiere on EPIX on July 17, the 17th anniversary of the crash.

"These investigators were not allowed to speak to the public or refute any comments made by their superiors and/or NTSB and FBI officials about their work at the time of the official investigation," a news release announcing the documentary said. "They waited until after retirement to reveal how the official conclusion by the (NTSB) was falsified and lay out their case."

The investigators filed a petition the NTSB for a new probe. In response, the NTSB said that it would review any petition related to the 1996 crash, which touched off one of the most complex air disaster investigations in U.S. history.

The CIA and FBI conducted a parallel investigation to determine if a bomb or missile had brought down the plane.

Dozens of eyewitnesses in the Long Island area "recalled seeing something resembling a flare or firework ascend and culminate in an explosion," the CIA said in a 2008 report. "Had the crash been the result of state-sponsored terrorism, it would have been considered an act of war":

The CIA responded to the FBI’s request within 24 hours of the crash. This support consisted primarily of help from the Counterterrorist Center in the Directorate of Operations and from a small group of analysts in the Office of Weapons, Technology and Proliferation in the Directorate of Intelligence.

But after an eight-month investigation, the CIA "concluded with confidence and full substantiation that the eyewitnesses had not seen a missile."

"Our analysis demonstrates that the eyewitness sightings of greatest concern to us—the ones originally interpreted to be of a possible missile attack—took place after the first of several explosions aboard the aircraft," the CIA's Deputy Director of Intelligence wrote in a 1997 memo.
