i'll skip the 7 pages, hope no one has mentioned this.
it would seem the El Al flight was the real target.
A search of el al puts their website at the top, so you can try using search next time:

I remember this event and I'll never forget a clip I saw on the news showing a surface to air missile being launched. The reporter said it was footage filmed by a tourist. Then...Bam! Never saw this video again, ever, anywhere. Then came the story of the center tank explosion which became the official line. In the back of my mind, I always wondered about the clip I'd seen and where the hell it went
I should have been more specific but I had to go to bed right then.
They are large aircraft hit by missiles. How are they not similar? Because they landed, and TWA 800 didn't?
See comment above.
I'm really curious how a missile designed to track on heat sources, with less than 10 pounds of explosives is going to cause a 747 to break into 5 pieces like this.

Most people weren't watching MSNBC at that time, frankly it had just debuted that week and with Brian Williams' Rand McNally map as the graphics, I'd assume that most watching when the news broke switched over to CNN (or local NY news). The TWA 800 video exclusive was what they hoped would put the network on the map (MSNBC won the bidding war and I hear the price was outrageous), but the FBI had other ideas.

That event caused me to miss a flight. I had lost my driver's license like a day or 2 before leaving on a flight to Chicago. At the airport I was asked for a photo id and I quipped: "I don't want to drive it, I just want to ride in it"...wrong thing to do lol I almost got a cavity search out of that bit of humor. I had to get a new driver's license before I could make a flight the next day. My coworkers referred to me as "the terrorist" after that event
Anyone on here who is refuting that the official story is a crock didn't watch the video and doesn't have a right to comment.

No it hasn't aired but there's a press release link that's already been posted twice in the first few pages of the thread. It's been posted a third time for you.

what video? Has this documentary even aired? Can someone post a link? Cause the article says it's going to air, not that it has.
Nice find! I haven't seen that one before.

Ok this one is a goodie... It relates to the radar pics that I have posted. The FBI thinks a navy ship did it, and the department of defense is covering it up.
Blank has stated that their experts have identified this anomoly as the missle that brought down TWA flight 800. Blank advised that 4 radar sweeps show the anomoly as traveling at mach 2.Etc...
Yes the flight id shows for the correlated targets, but what's apparently of interest on those radar screenshots is the uncorrelated target (there is no flight ID for that presumably because there's no transponder in the target). I don't know exactly how they determined it was traveling at mach 2 but if you know the time between screenshots and the distances shown on the screen it should be a simple calculation.

The image isn't very sharp, but basically you have flight ID or Tail number, speed and altitude. Usually they hit the printer and take a snapshot of the screen. I have a FAA screen dump somewhere.
There was a video and an interview with a fisherman who describes it. It was on once and I never saw it again.
