The Associated Retired Aviation Professionals was formed in early 1997.  Its members include former military, civilian, and aviation professionals who are committed to independently investigating the mysterious crash of TWA Flight 800 on July 17, 1996.


CDR. William S. Donaldson, USN (ret.),  challenged the official NTSB position on the cause of the crash of TWA Flight 800 in a series of letters to James Hall, Chairman of the NTSB between April 1997 and December 2000.  During those four years, CDR. Donaldson worked with other Retired Aviation Professionals, including some previous crash investigators as well as persons inside the NTSB investigation itself.  CDR. Donaldson has extensive experience as a Naval crash investigator and he and others concluded that the NTSB's explanation of the Center Wing Tank explosion was not credible.  With the help of these other concerned aviation professionals, CDR. Donaldson produced an extensive report on the cause of the crash.  The initial Interim Report was delivered to the House Aviation Subcommittee on July 16th, 1998. Since that time a great deal of new information has surfaced.

Information uncovered in early 1999 now shows that TWA Flight 800 could have been shot down by one or more shoulder-fired missiles. The FBI was briefed by military missile experts in the Fall of 1996 that Flight 800 was well within the range of a shoulder fired missile.  The FBI conducted a covert dredging operation for stinger missile parts between November 1996 and April 1997.  CDR. Donaldson brought this new evidence to the House Aviation Subcommittee in testimony on May 6, 1999.  Unfortunately, the major media and the Congress are content to swallow the official line without question.

This website is dedicated to CDR Donaldson's outstanding leadership in searching for the truth.
