Deadly Departure: Why the Experts Failed to Prevent the TWA Flight 800 Disaster & How It Could Happen Again
Christine Negroni (au). The in-flight explosion of TWA Flight 800 on July 17, 1996, was one of the deadliest disasters in American history. The commercial aviation industry has known for more than 35 years that during flight confined vapors in the fuel tanks can create a bomb-like environment. Flight 800 was the 14th fuel tank explosion on a commercial airline in 35 years. Yet every time, the airline industry persuaded regulators to deal with the symptoms of the problem & ignore the cause. Exposes the aircraft manufacturers who knew all along, but dismissed as acceptable, the risk of fuel tank explosions. Tells the stories of the passengers & their families, the people of TWA & Boeing, the rescue & crisis workers, & the investigators.
