TWA 800 Crash Documentary has new Evidence that reveals external Detonation?

New evidence suggests that the crash of TWA Flight 800 was caused by an external detonation.

Trans World Airlines Flight 800 took off from the John F. Kennedy International Airport on July 17th, 1996. The Boeing 747-100, together with its 230 passengers, never made it to Paris.

Just 12 minutes after takeoff, the Flight 800 unexpectedly exploded and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. The official investigation conducted by the National Transportation Safety Board revealed that the explosion was caused by an electrical short circuit that allegedly started in a fuel gauge, eventually making its way into the fuel tank located at the center wing.

Now, years after the disaster, which is considered to be the third-deadliest aviation accident in the U.S., the NTSB is considering to review the investigation after a film-maker named Tom Stalcup made accusations that the official investigation was falsified.

Stalcup, who co-produced the documentary film entitled "TWA Flight 800," believes that the explosion may have been caused by an outside force, saying that there is a solid proof that there was an external detonation.

Skeptics assert that the explosion was most likely a terrorist attack. You can read and watch the rest of Stalcup's interview with CNN here. TWA Flight 800 premiers on July 17th, just in time for the 17th anniversary of the tragedy.
