TWA Flight 800

Recommended Posts


This may probably sound naive to some (don't judge, I can't think straight at 1:22am), but who could possibly fire a missile against an airliner in US territory?

Someone in a boat offshore.

 

Guess smuggling a missile into the states isn't as hard as I thought.

Pure conspiracy fantasy.

As any lawyer will prove to you, eyewitness testimony isn't the most reliable. As the footage of the "missile attack" on California a few years ago proves, even footage can be misinterpreted when a plane leaving a contrail is called a cruise missile or ICBM.

 

AFAIK, there are no videos or even photos of this, so it's just based on what people said they saw. The fuel tank exploded, and an IRM will hit the engine of a 747 long before it locks onto the middle of a plane, so it makes no sense to say it was a missile.

Now if it was a BOMB that did it, I'd believe that 100x more easily, but those NTSB guys would have to be totally incompetent to miss that.

 

Oh, and making it a cover-up makes zero sense. What is the motive of covering it up? Notice it's not happened again, which if it was a case of "crap, we can't stop people from shooting down our planes with SA-7s" you'd think we'd have seen more of?

 

The final report IIRC said "the center tank blew up, we're just not exactly sure why". A static electricity discharge, which shouldn't have happened, could easily have done it, but they don't know how it could've happened. So they know WHAT, just not HOW...so conspiracy theorists, who love to assume that they're never told the truth and the more convoluted and deep the rabbit hole is the more likely it is (in contravention of evidence that the simplest solution is usually correct over 90% of the time), have a field day with this.

 

Just like 9/11. Just like JFK. Just like the Moon landings. Just like a million other things.
