What more than 200.
People died at terrifying death when a Jumbo jet took off from JFK in new York and plunged to the ground.
That was seventeen years ago the official story at the time of fuel leak brought down the play.
But now some of the people who investigate of that disaster say it may not have been an accident.
They say it may have been a missile.
And did a new documentary that they put out they claim the -- ran an agenda driven investigation.
And a massive cover up.
The five gentlemen that participated -- me all of whom were principal investigators during the original investigation.
Okay into the same conclusion separately that an external explosion caused the downing of T Davies played 800 -- -- center field thing.
And external explosion.
Witnesses also say they saw streaks of light heading toward the plane.
But that's been exploit in thousands of pages of a report available to everybody on line.
That streak is ruled to be burning fuel streaming from the planes -- -- tech.
Which broke off after the initial explosion and then caught fire.
Rick Leventhal -- -- our New York City newsroom with more on this -- former investigators filed a petition asking the feds reopen the investigation something frankly anyone can do it.
And it's been done before shepherd but in this case filmmakers say it's a concern to those investigators that were ignored there -- the problem here also the observations of dozens of witnesses that were discounted or misrepresented.
Alleging an -- a massive cover up.
The documentary includes a fresh look at forensics radar data and other physical evidence charging the original investigation was flawed in the government's explanation.
Quote defies the laws of physics.
-- documents documentary presents the facts.
That -- proves the official theory.
And proves beyond any reasonable doubt that it detonation not a fuel air explosion and detonation caused this crash.
Stock up says the evidence shows at least one object rose from the surface most likely a missile bringing the plane down.
Jim call from who led the FBI's criminal investigation calls these charges preposterous.
He says the agency assumed it was a missile and exhaustively investigated that possibility.
But we got a full court press from month to month month on that theory but the reality was there's no.
Of a missile hitting the plane you know outside the plane inside the plane penetrating the plane concussion from a missile there's no evidence of it.
Coughlin says a suggestion of a cover up is nonsensical.
-- a spokesman or spokeswoman for the NTSB says that agency will review the petition to reopen the case.
She says people who were not involved in the original investigation.
