I remember all about TWA Flight 800. It happened by Long Island, so relatively close to me and a couple of days before my birthday. It was all over the news for the longest time and I even thought about writing a book about it. (I don’t remember all the details but I think it was going to be fictional and loosely based off of the events.)
The Downing of TWA Flight 800 puts forward some evidence that the plane was not taken out by a fuel tank explosion, but rather it was shot down by a missile. There are a lot of different details in the book and I’m not sure what I believe but the book certainly made me think.
What do you think? Check out the book and let me know!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
A MISSLE SHOT DOWN FLIGHT 800!
On July 17, 1996, minutes after take-off, TWA Flight 800 was blown out of the sky, killing all 230 people on board.
It took federal investigators nearly and year and millions of tax dollars to point to a fuel tank explosion. But the investigation was riddled with questionable procedures. Was the government hiding a huge military embarrassment? Was the plane shot down by a missile?
The Indisputable Evidence. . .
Reddish residue from missile fuel on passenger seats
Clean entry and exit hole in forward cabin
34 certified eyewitnesses to airborne projectile not allowed to testify
FAA radar tapes or projectile in path with Flight 800
Government documents confirm Naval testing in area that night
Who launched the missile? How much did the government know and when? Was it simple bureaucratic incompetence or the most massive cover-up in U.S. history? Ex-cop turned acclaimed investigative reporter Jim Sanders exposed the shocking truth in 1997. Despite unremitting threats to his life, he has recovered even more evidence the FBI tried to suppress about the true history of TWA Flight 800.
Include explosive photos!
