Former Obama pilot: TWA Flight 800 was not blown up by a faulty fuel tank; it was shot down.

Was TWA Flight 800 shot out of the sky?

As a former pilot, that is a question I get asked about all the time.

I’m no conspiracy theorist, but let’s be clear: Yes. I say it was. And I believe the FBI covered it up.

There are many reasons to disbelieve the official explanation of what happened to TWA 800 almost 19 years ago, on July 17, 1996, off the South Shore of Long Island. There’s hardly an airline pilot among the hundreds I know who buys the official explanation — that it was a fuel-tank explosion — offered by the National Transportation Safety Board some four years later.

Lots can go wrong with an airplane. Engines can fail; they can catch fire. Devices can malfunction. Pilots make errors.

But jets do not explode in midair.


  1. Of for the love of Pete. We don't have enough to worry about with all the shit happening today, we have to borrow old shit from 20 years ago?

    I go with the explanation: Very often, we simply don't know. After a jet has been blown up and washed in sea water, there isn't much evidence left. I highly doubt that it really was a fuel tank wiring spark problem. If it was, I highly doubt any forensic person could positively conclude that given the pieces recovered. But for some reason, they just never like to say, "we don't know". I personally thing that the experts have a huge ego investment in remaining "experts" and they suffer if they can'd declair their certainty of their own knowledge.

    It was NOT a missile, fired by terrorists or the US armed forces. Missiles don't do that.
    The evidence can clearly show that the plane suffered an internal explosion. Missiles would have hit the wings and the fuselage would have broken up on impact with the water.

    But all we really have in most cases is speculation and the speculation from teh highest official from teh TSA is normally the one that sticks to become the official explanation.

    As an aside, Notice how explanation also stretches to ex-plane-ation? as in, no more plane?

  2. I happened to be watching live coverage of that tragedy in the few minutes after it happened. I think it was CNN (was Fox on air 19 years ago?) that I was watching.
    They interviewed a guy who identified himself as an officer or maybe retired officer in the Air Force reserve or possibly the Coast Guard. He was high rank, not a green horn LT. He said he was on the beach and saw the explosion. He described what he knew to be the track of a missile coming up from the ocean and impacting the aircraft and then the explosion. The man was certain of what he saw and he certainly
    had the credentials to know. I've been watching and waiting now for 19 years for him to turn up again and do a follow up on what he saw. I never heard another word from him. If anyone here saw it or saw a subsequent interview with him I'd love to know about it. CH

    1. I remember this being reported, but nothing else.

  3. What does "former obama pilot" mean?

    Fwiw- there's a book out by Jack Cashill called First Strike about this. The FBIand NTSB did some seriously questionable things regarding this "Investigation".

    Not surprising with the recent light on their evidence handling.

      I guess he flew AF One and thanks.

  4. An expert is some one who will tell you what you want to hear (for a price). What is avoided when dealing with so called experts is how much real world experience they have vs the amount of "book learning" or the certified pieces of paper they have hanging on their wall. And an expert is just as likely to be wrong as the non-expert.
    Remember the Titanic was designed and built by experts, and the Ark by an amatuer. People forget too, how ego comes into play. An expert will be one of the very last people to admit he was wrong about some thing. If the expert, is representing the PTB, then for me it is a given that he is a paid liar, when enough low information sheeple to go along with the "if the expert says it is so, then it must be".

    My general rule of thumb is that the offical government story is NOT the real story. The so called experts would still have you believe that Osward was the LONE gunman who murdered JFK. As far as I am concerned the government is still lying about what happened to TWA flight 800. They are never going to tell the truth, when telling the truth makes them look bad. It's not going to happen.

      Ha! :)

  5. Cui Bono........ Who benefits. In order to lend credence to the myriad conspiracy theory's that seem to never die proponents of these theories must answer that question.

    WHY! Why would someone wish to shoot down such a plane, at that place and a that time. What benefit is there and for whom. Then one must answer the question of HOW.
    What type of missile, who provided it, was it manpad or crew served, if crew served how do you keep the crew quiet. I don't care what the theory is if you can't provide a reason why, who profits, what is to be gained from these acts then you have no reason to expect anyone to believe the specious claims of conspiracy wackos.
