Plane which was flying missiles.
Off the coast of Long Island.
These people on the ship.
Do it tests of missiles.
Many times a year and they have been told that all these planes were flying over that area would be -- 21000 feet.
But they weren't told that the TWA flight was going to be at thirteen thousand feet because -- was a plane on top of it and he couldn't go up any higher at that particular moment.
Respected former Kennedy Press Secretary Pierre Salinger.
Unleashing seventeen years of controversy when he charged back in 1996.
At the crash of TWA flight 800 was no accident.

July 17 1996.
TWA flight 800 takes off from JFK airport bound for Paris.
As the Jumbo jet climbs above the South Shore of Long Island it explodes in -- Killing all 230.
And contrary to government findings hundreds of witnesses like former National Guard pilot Fred Meyer are convinced the plane was shot down.
They were skimming over in this area right here on the night very much like this.
And I picked up.
-- Victor true.
And it was moving from -- but senator further to my left it was almost horizontally into the horizon.

Do you describe it is something out of your past and it looked like.
Missile or something you've you've served in Vietnam it definitely looked like muscle.
The FBI in the National Transportation Safety Board -- through wreckage in a four year long investigation.
Painstakingly reconstructing the doomed aircraft like a tragic jigsaw puzzle from thousands of pieces of debris.
The official conclusion of wiring short circuit sparked the catastrophic explosion of in here and be fuel tank but -- -- A student working on his Ph.D.
in physics it and convince.
He spent the last seventeen years it's hearing witnesses and whistle -- there are documentary including the government is -- About the cause of the crash.
I think what's most importance to open this investigation.
Again get an honest look at it.
From unbiased group -- a bit of investigators I saw the beginning of a fuel explode compared to come explosion.
And that was the big fire ball that so many people observe.
But that was the fourth explosion -- I think -- preposterous I think it's you know it's pure fiction fox anchor Bill Hemmer spoke to lead FBI investigator of the crash James cal -- About the documentary the plane is still on a hangar down in Virginia.
And has been there for seventeen years.
You know there's some dastardly thing that you know was not within the scope of science back in 1996 that's for -- you know -- -- a -- -- that.
But -- throughput this this group of people I'm not those scientists James tells -- continues to prove who.
What you call evidence in your documentary doctor Charles Whitley has signed a petition he as the chief medical examiner.
Colonel Dennis Shanahan who is also medical -- and -- he sign advertising I was there.
He's been on -- point two presidential committees that these people are not local people Hank Hughes senior and his investigators he was chairman of the airplane reconstruction.
And -- -- group he laid out the the -- to reconstruct the entire plane.
I mean this is a bit.
High level person primary conclusion was.
-- the explosive forces came from outside the airplane.
Not to center field.
Would that -- have been in your analysis.
I got the right want.
Let me tell you this is an honest investigation.
And it is being conducted an honest and open fashion.
We didn't find any part of airplane and indicated mechanical failure.
Because terrorism was a lot of possibility the CIA is involved in the initial investigation.
Even producing an animation showing the plane breaking apart.
And concluding that the apparent missile witnesses reported seeing them with -- -- a trail of burning fuel coming from the aircraft after the initial explosion.
-- -- strongly rebuts that explanation claiming radar images -- a high velocity explosion occurred.
Outside the plane as witnessed by Fred Meyer and hundreds of other witnesses causing a secondary explosion of the fuel tank.
Now what the evidence shows -- a high velocity detonation caused this crash.
Not a -- -- -- there that's proposed by the government and that's the smoke.
Now when you listen to people like Fred Meyer American here are served in Vietnam a chopper -- Here in the United States in the guard.
Are you worried that.
Still attack him and they've already started their attacking us and they're calling me names know enough about them.
-- the eyewitnesses speak with him testify at hearing for -- never been done.
That's the bottom line we're although thousands of people whose lives were tragically affected -- all those people died on board TWA flight 801 a fair hearing.
Evidence that many of them believe shows that those deaths -- no accident.
For all -- Craig thanks so.
