Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)

Rated PG-13 for some disturbing graphic images and brief language

Did You Know?


Basic military air crash investigation techniques reveal that an external explosion would have peppered the airframe, fuselage and wings full of holes, much like a shotgun blast. If these holes were present, microscopic examination would reveal what direction the external force came from.

Furthermore micro cratering would be present on the crash debris from molten metal striking the aircraft at high speed.

None of these features are present on TWA 800 crash debris. See more »

We're not surprised anymore to find out our government is run by psychopaths
14 April 2019 | by baj8412See all my reviews

I just saw this flick on Pluto TV. I thought it was a great documentary about all the evidence tampering and ignoring of eye witnesses to the demise of Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island, NY. The question is why????? Why did missiles shoot this plane out of the sky. Who shot the missiles and why did the CIA and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) go to so much trouble to inject false information and make sure the truth was never told. We all knew the CIA was lying about what happened to JFK and JFK, Jr., now we can add this tragedy to the list of their lies. The most amazing part of this flick is preventing the numerous eye witnesses from testifying at the four-year long investigation into the plane crash. The film is a good expose of how psychopaths who run our government contrive the official story. Jason Goodman, an internet reporter, has a frequent guest named David Hawkins who reverse engineers crime scenes by studying patents that could be involved in or leased for committing crimes. Hawkins believes a reason these sort of events happen is because bored, wealthy,global elite psychos bet on how long it will take to kill everyone and / or how many people will survive. According to Hawkins, these psychos consider the demise of Flight 800 or the demolition of the twin towers on 911 to be a "snuff film" which they can watch and re-watch to get their jollies. .
