Did You Know?

Goofs

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 »

This research librarian is convinced
13 November 2013 | by happy_in_sideSee all my reviews

I'm a research librarian who teaches information literacy to college students. Information literacy is essentially how to find, evaluate, and use credible information. There is such an onslaught of bogus information out there that it's sometimes hard to know what's actually true. One way is to look at primary source documents such as video, photographs, interviews and original research conducted at the time of events. Those involved with this documentary went to great lengths through such means as Freedom of Information Act lawsuits, to gather together primary source documents that, when viewed together with expert testimony from those directly involved in the original investigation, create a much more plausible scenario than the official findings released by the FBI and NTSB.

I would be highly suspicious of one-star reviews stating things like "Opinions predominate, facts are scarce." I'm someone trained to know the difference and I can say quite confidently that this is not a "conspiracy film" based on innuendo and the convictions of those who hate and distrust the Federal Government. This is a well-researched documentary that asks us to consider an alternative conclusion to the one presented by the FBI and NTSB...a conclusion based on the actual evidence. I for one am convinced and I hope this film will generate enough public outcry to force the NTSB and FBI to reopen the investigation or at the very least, be more forthcoming about their actual findings.
