  1. Wow, I can't believe it's been 25 years. I remember how much this story hit me back then. I had recently graduated high school and there were a lot of high schoolers on that plane that were my age. About half a year prior to the crash I flew down to Disney World on a school trip with my marching band. I guess it really hit home because the situations were similar and made me wonder why things happen the way they do…why those kids died, but I was fine. RIP to all who lost their lives in this horrendous crash and my thoughts to all the people who lost loved ones.

  2. 😭😢My professor Connie Coiner and her daughter..a gifted and amazing young lady, Anna was on this flight summer '96 Paris bound. Husband and dad Steven Duarte was also a professor and EOP counselor (one of the Greatest) at Binghamton University. I was a sophomore when this happened, but knowing them since the summer prior to my freshman year, I was crushed and felt Steve's pain losing his amazing wife, smart, gifted, coolest and only child. Anna was smarter than most incoming freshman 🤭. They were and are family. They were a team of educators and pioneers of critical thinking, inclusive pedagogy, linked courses and the SAVE EOP PROGRAM. They encouraged me to question everything, rage against the machine, understand and conquer academia also organized rebellion fundamentals (they were the greatest family of educators EVER!!)..I don't know what happened that day but 25 years later I still feel the pain, the lost, the missing pieces of confusion along with Steve's loss and dying pain to be there to protect his family as always. Anna's excitement to go to Paris, while still wanting to be there for the summer programs as she did years prior as a child, was tear jerking . I miss you Prof. Connie and my scholar Anna..may you both be wrapped tight…my angels👼🏼😢❤️😭💞🙏🏿

  3. Philippines Airlines flt 143 was this same exact accident, but occured on the ground instead of the air. Cannot believe that Boeing never took any steps in correcting this design flaw. We had to lose 230 + the 8 people on flt 143 until the tanks were finally inerted. Profits over lives as usual..

  4. This was clearly a Clinton administration cover-up. TWA-800 was misidentified by the Navy when it flew into an active military ordinance training exercise. A retired USAF Brigadier General confirmed it was his armament technology that he had designed and developed for the Air Force and the Navy that brought the plane down. All the 'Air Disaster Investigation' programs even utilized the 'official narrative' in all their programs that covered this event. When the Boeing 747 was first introduced in February of 1969, these planes had a faulty wiring problem in the center fuel tank. However, by the end of the summer of that year, all the wiring was yanked out of those planes and the center fuel tank was redesigned by Boeing. The TWA-800 Boeing plane was built in 1971, therefore, it never had the wiring issue. The Clinton administration including the NTSB, FAA, FBI, and CIA resorted to incorporating the original 1969 wiring issue into the 'official narrative' as propaganda for this crash.

  5. I remember seeing witnesses on television say they saw a streak of light go up into the sky and then saw an explosion when TWA 800 went down. The US Navy was conducting exercises in the waters off NYC at the time. The main stream media just repeats the lies of the government.

  6. As a New Yorker who is 36 years old, I can honestly tell you that I’ve never heard of this disaster ever ever ever ever ever. This is the absolute first time I’ve even heard of it… Must’ve done a nice cover-up.

  7. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  8. GOD that made the world and all things therein, seeing that HE is LORD of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

    Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though HE needed any thing, seeing HE giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

    And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

    That they should seek the LORD, if haply they might feel after HIM, and find HIM, though he be not far from every one of us:

    For in HIM we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

    Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of GOD, we ought not to think that the GODHEAD is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

    And the times of this ignorance GOD winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

    Because HE hath appointed a day, in the which HE will judge the world in righteousness by that MAN Whom HE hath ordained; whereof HE hath given assurance unto all men, in that HE hath raised HIM from the dead.

  9. I had just arrived at the train station in Chicago on a trip to Flagstaff Arizona. Unfortunately, I saw the news about Flight 800, in the meantime Chicago was flooding. We had to get on a bus and take a 5 hour trip to Galesburg, Illinois. As we were leaving Chicago we passed many houses , inches apart , no trees in sight! No wonder they were flooding I thought! By the way, U was headed for a one week education tour of the Hopi) Navajo Reservations! Native Americans would have taken much better care of this country! " Man belongs to the Earth. Earth does not belong to man"! Chief Seattle.

  10. Right after millions of little debris and twisted metals and hundreds of luggage’s in that plain the authority going to pin point such small wire gonna tells that is the cause of that tragedy I’m sorry but I don’t believe it is impossible where hundreds and hundreds of wire are installed in the fuselage of that massive aircraft gonna tells that is the cause???
