TWA flight 800 crashed off of Long Island, N.Y., shortly after leaving John F. Kennedy International Airport and 230 people died. It was a 25-year-old Paris-bound Boeing 747 whose previous flight had been from Greece. Later reports of a missile attack were tracked to a Navy P-3 Orion flying at 20,000 feet as opposed to the altitude of the Boeing at 13,600 feet. In 1997 the FBI issued a report that the disaster was caused by an explosion in the central fuel tank and was not the result of sabotage. In 2013 former investigators pushed to reopen the probe into the crash.
