“..This team of investigators who actually handled the wreckage and victims’ bodies, prove that the officially proposed fuel-air explosion did not cause the crash,” reads a statement by the producers of the film, which will debut on cable network EPIX next month. “They also provide radar and forensic evidence proving that one or more ordnance explosions outside the aircraft caused the crash.” However, the statement said they did not speculate about the source or sources of any ordnance explosions.
The whistle-blower team, which includes investigators — at the time — from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), TWA, and the Airline Pilots Association, have since retired from their positions. They claim that at the time, they were placed under a gag order by the NTSB, which they charged falsified the official conclusion of the cause of the crash. They indicated they would elaborate more in a Wednesday media briefing.
The NTSB report, the culmination of a four-year investigation, suggested the cause of the explosion was due to an explosion in the gas tank caused by a short circuit.
With conspiracy theories immediately swirling around the crash — one being that it was caused by a terrorist missile strike — the FBI conducted a 16-month investigation and concluded that there was no evidence to indicate that any criminal act occurred.
The author of a book and a previous movie about TWA 800 says that the tragedy has a lot in common with the Benghazi terror attack of September 2012, including one central player: Hillary Clinton. http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2013/06/was-twa-800-shot-down.html?m=1
