TWA Flight 800 Investigators Break Silence in New Documentary, Claim Original Conclusion About Cause of Crash is Wrong

A group of whistleblowers, including a number of aviation experts, have come forward in a new documentary to claim that the official explanation for the crash of TWA Flight 800 was wrong and a gas tank explosion did not bring down the flight off the coast of Long Island 17 years ago.

However, the six whistleblowers, all part of the original investigation team, stopped short of saying the plane was shot down.

Flight 800, a Boeing 747, had just taken off from JFK airport with 230 people aboard on July 17, 1996 enroute to Paris when it exploded and crashed off the coast of nearby East Moriches, Long Island, killing everyone on the plane.

“..This team of investigators who actually handled the wreckage and victims’ bodies, prove that the officially proposed fuel-air explosion did not cause the crash,” reads a statement by the producers of the film, which will debut on cable network EPIX next month. “They also provide radar and forensic evidence proving that one or more ordinance explosions outside the aircraft caused the crash.” However, the statement said they did not speculate about the source or sources of any ordinance explosions.

The whistleblower team, which includes investigators-at the time-from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), TWA, and the Airline Pilots Association, have since retired from their positions. They claim that at the time, they were placed under a gag order by the NTSB, which they charged falsified the official conclusion of the cause of the crash. They indicated they would elaborate more in a Wednesday media briefing.

The best documentary I have seen on this cover-up is called TWA 800 and the Subversion of Justice. The film deals with the details of the accident and the obvious cover-up of the facts - facts that indicate the aircraft was shot down by a surface-to-air missile. Subsequent to this documentary it was learnt that the US Navy test fired missiles very close to the air corridor in which TWA 800 was flying.

This is the ridiculous 40 second NTSB-CIA animation (featured in many documentaries on the crash) that tried to explain away witness reports of a missile(s). It was said that burning fuel had fooled the witnesses, with fire raining downwards being mistaken for a light rising from the sea. However, with the nose section broken off, as seen in this fictional account, the aircraft should become massively tail heavy and instantly pitch up and then drop like a stone. Without the aircraft properly balanced, the wings will not be able to provide any lift (Google 'Aircraft Centre of Gravity' for more explanation):
