WTNH, Nov. 14, 2000 11:20 PM _ A Connecticut woman is leading the
fight to re-open the investigation into the crash of TWA Flight 800.
Last summer, the government closed the book on the case, blaming
mechanical error for the tragedy.
But one victim's sister Marge Gross and many others still insist a
missile launched from a boat on the water brought down the plane.
According to the FBI, 98 percent of the plane was uncovered from the
ocean, put under the microscope time after time and still there was no
evidence of a missile.
But, Gross believes the FBI is lying to cover-up the real reason the
plane crashed off the coast of Long Island just eleven minutes after
"I sat at his casket before he was buried and promised him that no
matter what it took, I would find out who did this to him," says
More than four years later, Marge Gross is still trying to fulfill
that promise to her brother.
She's launched her own investigation into the crash of TWA Flight 800
that killed Andy Krukar and 229 others.
"I remember looking at it and thinking, even in the dark, my God, how
could this be," says Gross.
Investigations by the FBI and the National Transportation Safety Board
concluded that faulty wiring probably caused an explosion in the jet's
center fuel tank.
Gross doesn't believe that.
"The longer this goes on, my whole being says this is a cover-up,"
The former TWA flight attendant has recruited a team of volunteer
experts, including physicist Tom Stalcup.
"Not only is it a puzzle, but it's a mysterious puzzle," says Dr. Tom
Doctor Stalcup first became interested in the missile theory after
reviewing this picture taken by an amateur photographer. The FBI still
has the negative.
There's also the compelling testimony of 700 witnesses who watched the
tragedy unfold before their eyes. More than 100 of them describe what
appeared to be a streak of light or flare moving up from the surface
into a huge fireball over the Atlantic Ocean. Now, four years after
the crash, many say, the government's account of what happened that
night isn't at all what they remember.
"Had I never seen what I saw that night, I wouldn't doubt the FBI and
the NTSB," says Paul Angelides.
From the porch of his beach house on Long Island, Paul Angelides saw a
streak of light heading up over the water. He says the flare appeared
to come from a boat.
"Then my impression became that I was watching some sort of military
exercise," says Angelides.
Stalcup says that based on his calculations the boat Angelides saw was
somewhere in an area marked on a recently released radar data.
It's one of the few ships the FBI never identified.
"The closest ship to the crash, not being able to identify that ship,
but all the other ships they can identify, seems strange to me," says
James Kallstrom led the FBI's investigation into the crash. He says
what Angelides saw was the plane already on fire, propelled upward,
once the plane's nose fell off.
"The plane climbed 3,000 feet or so, it was spewing flames," says
"I don't buy it. That air-craft was way out there, way out there. what
I saw was way over - close to the beach, high up here," says
Kallstrom calls the witness testimony "circumstantial evidence" and
claims some witnesses have changed their stories.
"I have no idea why these people say what they say. They should take a
hard look in the mirror and look at themselves and ask themselves what
they're saying," says Kallstrom.
"This whole thing that the government has done is preposterous," says
Major Fred Meyer.
For the first time, Major Fred Meyer agreed to sit down for an
in-depth interview on camera.
He was in a helicopter the night of the crash on a training mission
for the National Guard.
"Right there, to my left-front, I saw a streak of light, red-orange in
color, crossing the sky," says Meyers.
Based on his experiences as a pilot in Vietnam, Meyer says that what
he saw was a military explosive.
"When you've seen missiles fly across the sky, and I've seen a lot of
them, you know what a missile looks like flying across the sky," says
"It's nonsense, it's stupid. It has no basis in fact at all," says
"It may be 100 years before the people know the truth about this. But
they're going to have to kill every one of us to keep us quiet," says
"There's no way I would lie- to cover up, what? To cover up the death
of 230 people?" says Kallstrom.
Doctor Stalcup thinks he knows friendly fire.
He points to radar data showing Navy ships moving away from the crash
site, not toward it to help.
He visits Long Island regularly to talk with witnesses and search for
