FROM: Flight 800 Independent Researchers Organization (FIRO)

SUBJECT: TWA Flight 800 Petition Filed for Probable Cause Reconsideration

CONTACT: Tom Stalcup, Ph.D. FIRO Chairman,

FIRO releases today a thoroughly documented petition that exposes erroneous
findings within the National Transportation Safety Board's (NTSB's) Final
Report on TWA Flight 800.
Physical, forensic, radar, metallurgical, debris field, and eyewitness
evidence is presented in the petition proving that key findings in the
NTSB's Final Report are erroneous. Eight attachments, including an FBI
report formerly classified as "secret," an FBI radar analysis contradicting
the NTSB's official crash sequence, and official eyewitness drawings of an
apparent missile engagement follow the petition.
Today, the petition was informally submitted to NTSB Chairperson Blakey, and
FIRO will formally submit the petition to the NTSB after the parties to the
investigation (e.g. Boeing, TWA, etc.) receive their copies.
Anyone may view the petition (in Adobe Acrobat PDF format) now at   See:
NTSB Regulation 845.41(a): "Petitions for reconsideration...will be
entertained only if based on the discovery of new evidence or on a showing
that the Board's findings are erroneous."
Erroneous findings in the NTSB Final Report are now exposed in the most
complete official filing to the NTSB that challenges the probable cause for
the crash of TWA Flight 800.
