TWA Flight 800
The National Transportation Safety Board has denied a petition for reconsideration of its findings in the investigation of the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800.
The service is taking place at Smith Point County Park at the same time as a new documentary questioning federal investigators’ findings about the crash is set to air.
On Sunday’s Eye On New York, CBS 2’s Dana Tyler talked with film director Kristina Borgesson about the controversial new documentary “TWA Flight 800,” which is set to air as the 17th anniversary of the plane crash over the coast of Long Island approaches.
The retired investigators claim that findings were “falsified.” They are petitioning the NTSB to reopen the investigation based on new evidence and eyewitness accounts.
Sunday marked 15 years since the crash of TWA Flight 800, and families of the victims gathered together Sunday to remember their loved ones.
In 1996, the Paris-bound jet exploded in the sky just after takeoff from Kennedy International Airport, setting off a massive FBI probe amidst fears that a bomb or missile was to blame.
