TWA Flight 800
NPR's Mary Ann Akers reports on the first day of a two-day meeting about the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800. Members of the National Transportation Safety Board are discussing what the staff has compiled on the crash. They're also preparing to approve the staff report on the probable cause. The board is expected to vote tomorrow, and release safety recommendations. The staff has concluded, as has long been accepted, that the center fuel tank exploded and destroyed the airplane, killing all 230 people on board.
