FIRE ISLAND, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A memorial will be held Saturday to mark the 25th anniversary of the crash of TWA Flight 800.

The plane, bound for Paris, crashed in the water off Long Island in 1996 shortly after taking off from JFK Airport.

Investigators believe a fuel tank exploded, killing all 230 people on board.

Victims’ relatives are expected to gather at the TWA Memorial in Smith Point Park on Saturday evening.
