Why the Experts Failed to Prevent the TWA Flight 800 Disaster and How It Could Happen Again.

by Christine Negroni. No airline crash in recent years attracted more worldwide attention than that of TWA Flight 80. t was not just that some 236 people were killed on the flight minutes after it left John F. Kennedy Airport bound for Paris early on the evening of July 17, 1996 -- the plane had seemingly exploded in midair for no immediately obvious reason. Such things simply were not supposed to happen. Within days the conspiracy theorists were in full cry. An onboard bomb, said some; a ground-fired missile, said others.

The in-flight explosion of TWA Flight 800 on July 17, 1996, was one of the deadliest disasters in American history, spurring the most expensive airline investigation ever undertaken by the U.S. government. To this day the crash remains clouded in doubt and shadowed by suspicion of a government conspiracy.

If there was any conspiracy to hide the truth about what really happened to Flight 800, it began long before the crash. Past crashes tell the story: What happened on Flight 800 has happened before and will again, unless drastic changes are made. Now veteran journalist Christine Negroni reveals what the commercial aviation industry has known for more than thirty-five years that during flight confined vapors in the fuel tanks can create a bomb like environment. It takes only a small energy source to ignite it.

TWA Flight 800 was the fourteenth fuel tank explosion on a commercial airliner in thirty-five years. Yet each and every time, the airline industry persuaded regulators to deal with the symptoms of the problem and ignore the cause. When investigators could not immediately determine what happened, they were finally forced to look at the bigger picture. And, for the first time, this book exposes the hubris of aircraft manufacturers who knew all along, but dismissed as acceptable, the risk of fuel tank explosions.

Deadly Departure shines a spotlight on the chaos behind the most massive crash investigation ever conducted, how the White House had to intervene between feuding investigators, and the surprising stories behind the missile theory conspiracies. It also tells the stories of the passengers and their families, the people of TWA and Boeing, the rescue and crisis workers, and the investigators and scientists involved illustrating the devastating effects on human lives. An impeccably researched, eye-opening examination of one of the great disasters of our time, Deadly Departure is a stunning exposé of how industry pressure continues to undermine regulatory policy, placing air travelers' lives at risk.

Reading this book once again brought home forcefully why I had to quit working for government at any level. It is incredibly frustrating for employees who are trying to do a good job to have to constantly fight against both the inertia and the constant attempts by some for self-aggrandizement.

On the other side of the equation, why is it so difficult for a company to admit a mistake in design or manufacture? Is it because our tort system has become so punitive that it amounts to falling one's sword to admit to a mistake?

As with so many problems facing us in our daily lives there are no easy answers, no easy fixes. Attempts by legislation to fix problems seem to always concentrate on the easy fix or easy answer and fail to correct what they attempt to correct or make it worse.

Very well-written. Don't listen to the negative reviewers who gave low marks just because the author didn't buy into the conspiracy theory. That theory was given it's due coverage here and debunked. Anyone familiar with the workings of government at any level can understand agency infighting and the other things that delayed the refocusing of this on the true cause. An amazing play-by-play of how investigators were able to literally put all the pieces together to come up with the most likely cause of this tragedy. I really enjoyed the way the author pulled the many different story lines together into a coherent, comprehensive story.

Although it's been 20 years, we haven't forgotten the ill-fated Flight 800. The author tells us a lot about the passengers and the investigation, and how she concluded the cause was a fuel tank explosion, not the terrorism that's been so touted in popular news and documentaries. People might prefer a more dramatic story, but in this case, she gets to the bottom of a design flaw. Her research and reporting probably makes it safer for everyone to fly.

Clearly, concisely and compassionately written. Christine's voice regarding the tragedy is resonant about TWA Flight 800. I had been a believer of the conspirator theory since the accident. I have flown the 747 for over 16 years and never doubted its capability. Christine's well documented report has convinced me otherwise.

Her compassion regarding the victims and families is heartfelt. Her perspective on the people involved in the investigation is compelling. Whether you have a curious interest into the findings of this accident or if you are a student or experienced aviation accident investigator, I highly recommend reading this book! Deadly Departure: Why the Experts Failed to Prevent the Twa Flight 800 Disaster and How It Could Happen Again

This book provides lots of details on the fuel tank being the source of explosion. It's still hard to ignore all the eyewitness accounts from the night of the crash, indicating an outside source of explosion, i.e., a missile.

Surely there must be better written, researched and edited books on TWA 800 than this one. It's plodding, disjointed and difficult to read. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

I opened the book as a skeptic and watched my skepticism develop into curiosity, then riveted attention. I am a rootician by trade, i.e., my professional mission is to save lives, assets, and careers through thoughtful inquiry. Certainly every rootician’s library should include access to this book.

Full disclosure: I am not associated in any way, except as a customer and/or victim, with any aspect of the transportation industry.

The Boeing 747 designated TWA Flight 800 exploded just south of east Moriches, Long Island, NY at 2031 hours EST on July 17, 1996 with the loss of 230 people . Most investigators and reviewers, including me, believe that the event set-up included the establishment of an explosive atmosphere in the center wing fuel tank and defective wiring and that the explosion was triggered by a spark from the defective wiring.

Observation: The magnitude of the harm was limited/mitigated by the flight being only partially booked. That particular Boeing 747-131 could have accommodated over a hundred or so more passengers . A similar statement could be made for RMS Titanic, which was deliberately underbooked.

Observation: The book does not clearly satisfy its title. I did not turn the last page with a clear picture of the conditions, behaviors, actions, and inactions that resulted in the disaster nor of those that could result in a repeat.

Observation: Every explosive atmosphere is an explosion waiting to happen. It has been impossible to date to guarantee that a detonating trigger phenomenon will not occur.

Observation: It is hard not to compare the TWA 800 Disaster with Apollo 13 Event .

Observation: The book largely ignores the culture of crass economic decision making with weak safety leadership that resulted in the explosive atmosphere in the center wing fuel tank and in the existence of old lightly inspected wiring. Does this issue arise in Deepwater Horizon Macondo, BP Texas City 2005, Fukushima, Chernobyl, Bhopal, and other cases? What happened to the moral compass?
