 SEPTEMBER 14, 1999

 On Tuesday, September 14, 1999, at 9:30 a.m., the reconstructed section of
 the TWA flight 800 aircraft will be moved to a smaller hangar at the
 Calverton, Long Island facility where it currently is housed. (This is the
 rescheduled date from the postponed date of August 26)

 TWA flight 800 crashed, on July 17, 1996, into the Atlantic Ocean about
 eight miles south of East Moriches, NY, after taking off for Paris, France,
 from John F. Kennedy International Airport.  All 230 people on board
 perished.  The investigation into this accident is ongoing.

 The 96-foot reconstruction of the accident aircraft, including the center
 wing fuel tank, has been strengthened, placed on wheels, and will be rolled
 a distance of about 1/2 mile to the new hangar.

 This event will be open for media coverage.  Reporters, photographers and TV
 crews seeking to observe and/or record the movement will be admitted through
 the main gate to the Calverton facility, on Grumman Road, beginning at 8
 a.m., on Tuesday, September 14.

 While no pre-registration is necessary, those seeking admittance will be
 required to present working media credentials.

 Note:  Please be aware that the movement of the reconstruction may be
 delayed or postponed should there be adverse weather conditions.

 NTSB Chairman Jim Hall will be present at Calverton for the movement
 and will be available for interviews as time and circumstances permit.
