Yes. But it was one of our own.
Quite possibly. There was an awful lot of activity going on in the area that night.

(DC, TSA: things that make me puke.)
I had a long post here which went over the problems with thinking it was a terrorist missile, but it has departed into an FR memory hole. (I do have the text someplace, but not on the computer I am using now.) Bottom line is that JFK planes bound for Europe are normally at 19,000 feet well west of where TWA800 was stricken. NO ONE who posits a terrorist missile thinks they would have anything capable to that altitude. It is true that a combination of circumstances kept TWA800 to 13,100 at that point but no terrorist would be lying in wait at a place where his missiles would normally not have the range to reach his target.
