They are not similar.
I like how you edited the quote to leave out the fact that three other aircraft were all hit by similar missiles, and not only turned around and landed safely, they were all returned to service within a few months. But somehow this particular plane was hit by a magic Hollywood missile that shattered it into pieces.
What we concluded, in fact, is that this extraordinary video has the potential to break the TWA Flight 800 case wide open.
The video had been shot from a U.S. Navy P-3 Orion that had been flying almost directly above TWA Flight 800 when it exploded off the coast of Long Island on the night of July 17, 1996. For the record, the P-3 is a long-range, antisubmarine warfare patrol aircraft with advanced submarine detection and avionics equipment.
In the new unedited version, however, the cameraman does not stay with the known debris field. In each of the two short sections, on five separate occasions, he pans the camera about three miles off to the northwest, back towards JFK where TWA Flight originated, and focuses on another burning object.
The crash of TWA Flight 800,
potentially one of the most lethal
international terrorist acts ever
perpetrated against the United
States, touched off the most
extensive, complex, and costly air
disaster investigation in US history.
