SUBJECT: TWA Flight 800 Petition Filed for Probable Cause Reconsideration

May 21, 2002

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 anapparent 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 now at Flight800.org See: http://www.flight800.org/petition/pet_contents.htm
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.
