Hey those who want the truth. This is no joke!!! I have a friend, Marc,
who works for NASA and Lockheed Martin on the Titan missile. He's the one
who sent this. And never, as long as I've known him, has he emailed a joke
to me. Just read on and watch the papers, knowing where you heard it first.

I just received the following account of the downing of TWA flight 800 and
thought I would share it with you. I cannot vouch for the validity of the
information, but will admit that it is interesting.
The message came to me from a man who was Safety Chairman for the Airline
Pilots Association for many years and he is considered an expert on safety.
He would not ever spread idle rumor. In short, he is usually quite certain
before saying anything!
Hang in there! Regards >=< Marc

The following information about TWA Fight 800 was received this afternoon:
TWA flight 800 was shot down by a U.S. Navy guided missile ship which was
in area W-105. W-105 is a Warning Area off the SouthEast coast of Long
Island and is used by the military for missile firing and other military
Guided missile ships travel all over the world defending the US and they
were conducting practice firings up over the top of a Navy P-3 radar plane
who was on a Southwest heading about over the top of TWA 800. Evidently
the missile is suppose to go over the top of the P-3 and the accuracy of
the missile is being measured by instrumentation in the P-3.
There was a USAir flight coming from the Southeast descending towards
Providence, RI that had been cleared to 21,000 feet and the TWA 800 aircarft
was restricted to 13,000 feet. The air traffic controller requested the
USAir flight to turn on his landing lights with the idea that TWA might see
his lights and identify him. At that point, he would clear the TWA flight
to continue his climb.
The P-3 was a non-beacon target (transponder OFF) flying southwest in the
controlled airspace almost over TWA 800 and made NO calls to ATC. After
the explosion, he continued his flight to the west and then called ATC and
asked if they would like him to turn around and assist with the "accident!"
You will remember that the first announcement about this accident came from
the Pentagon. The spokesman mentioned that they were sending the Navy to
the crash site. They immediately sent a Navy Captain who was replaced the
next day by an Admiral. That Admiral is still on the scene.
The FBI has conducted at least 3,000 eyewitness interviews and the NTSB has
not been able to be a part of these interviews not have any access to the
contents of them. Some of those eyewitnesses reported seeing lights. Those
were probably the landing lights of the USAir plane.
It has been a cover-up from the word go. The NTSB is there in name ONLY.
All announcements made by Mr. Bob Francis say absolutely nothing and notice
that the FBI is always standing beside or behind Mr. Francis and it would
appear that his job is to make sure that nothing is said that would give
away "THE BIG SECRET!"
It is time to end this farce and tell the public the real truth as to what
happened to TWA 800. My source shall remain my own but the above
information is true and I believe it will all become known soon. Now that
all of you know the real truth.
