Don't let a thread like this slip by you just because we are at war.

Are there any other download-able internet audio players that might be compatible with this. I hate giving my credit card info over to real networks even if I do cancel my subscription to them. It's like signing up with AOL

Thank you so much. We have so many obtuse individuals here that anything factual helps.

Deeply appreciated.

Thanks for your help, the truly-free audioplayer is buried on the website, as compared to their "freepass" which you have to pay for. I can't believe I am downloading it at this hour of night.

My wife and I flew on flight 800 about 3 weeks before it blew up--we went to Paris for our honeymoon. This was truly one of those "there but for the grace of God go I" situations

Glad to help. I forgot to tell you how they hide it. LOL!

Also, very glad you did not make that particular flight.

Sorry I am not computer-smart enough to figure this stuff out - would someone mind posting the gist of this, or its significance? TNX

It is a recording of the air traffic controller telling the planes where to fly and about three-quarters of the way through one of the other planes reports seeing an explosion and two fireballs (Flight 800) descending into the water. One of the planes (Coast Guard I beleive) goes on to report seeing it still burning on the water and gives the air traffic controller the latitude and longitude of the fireballs on the water.

The recording is pretty hard to follow, you gotta admire these air traffic controllers and the job they have to do. I dont know if I could keep up with all those planes in the sky.

Thanks for posting this.

TWA 800 is a great litmus test.

Lefties who see conspiracies everywhere are incapable of acknowledging that dozens of agenda-less eye witnesses spread over hundreds of square miles saw a missile strike the aircraft.

Then there is the dog that did not bark: If it had been a fuel tank explosion, there would have been others in 747s. If it worked the way it was alleged to have worked, it is not credible that TWA800 was the only case, and that there is no reason to ground the 747 fleet to avert similar events.

Either TWA800 did not explode spontaneously, or the 747 fleet is unsafe. Only one can be true.

Yeah, those New York controllers are the best, and impatient with anything but professionalism from the pilots.

Yes yes yes.

I've always assumed Boeing went along with the knowingly false rationale in return for assurances that future govt contracts would more than compensate for PR and financial losses from TWA 800.

You are correct. Gone, gone, gone from my machine. No more Real anything on my computer. I have had enough.

Thanks for the post. At about 6:40 into the tape, a pilot on TWA 507 reports he thought he saw something resembling a "landing light" at 15,000 ft shortly before the explosion. It reminded me of an experience I had while orbiting in international airspace off the coast of the Soviet Union. We were still engaged in the Cold War at the time.

I recall looking out the cockpit window and commenting to the aircraft commander to look at the "landing light". It was only a matter of seconds before we determined it was not a "landing light". As we were turning away the "light" extinguished like turning out a light bulb.

The folks with more specific information on the event would never say if we witnessed a missile test or if the aircraft we were there to support was a target of the Soviet surface to air missile.

I will never forget my first impression of a high altitude surface to air missile was that it was a "landing light". The first time I heard the pilot on Flight 507 describe a "landing light" that may have been a fire immediately before the explosion, it had a chilling impact on me.

Thank you again for posting the audio.

Bookmarking for tomorrow.

I saw that skank Kallstrom on a tv talkshow tonight, showing off and telling everyone how to run homeland security. What a bombastic a$$. He knows the truth, but will never tell about TWA800. Coverup Butt Boy!

Yeah, he really raises your confidence (cough) that we'll get the straight story from him on any terror attacks.
