If you ever seen Final Destination, many believe the plane crash in the movie was a implication of this real crash. The 1996 plane crash of the TWA 800 was listed as a fatal crash due to mechanical problems, killing all 230 people. The plane took off the JFK and crashed into the Long Island Sound. Many people who were on the beach that July 17th said it looked like it was hit by a missile and exploded.
Well they are reopening the case as new evidence has been found and now they are confident it was an attack and not a mechanical issue.
CT Post reported:
The effort to reopen the probe is being made in tandem with next month’s release of a documentary that features the testimony of former investigators who raise doubts about the National Transportation Safety Board‘s conclusion that the crash was caused by a center fuel tank explosion, probably caused by a spark from a short-circuit in the wiring.
“We don’t know who fired the missile,” said Jim Speer, an accident investigator for the Air Line Pilots Association, one of those seeking a new review of the probe. “But we have a lot more confidence that it was a missile.”
