Lawsuits filed for information on Flight 800 crash
BOSTON (AP) — A man who helped produce a documentary that questions the official cause of the deadly 1996 crash of TWA Flight 800 from New York City to Paris has filed lawsuits seeking more information from the U.S. military.
Thomas Stalcup says in lawsuits filed last week that he received inadequate responses to Freedom of Information requests of the Missile Defense Agency and the Navy Special Warfare Command.
Stalcup, a physicist, has challenged the National Transportation Safety Board’s determination that the explosion of the aircraft’s center fuel tank caused the flight to crash minutes after taking off from New York, killing all 230 people aboard.
He is among a group of people who believe the plane was downed by a missile.
