Missile strike theory in US plane crash

New film suggests midair explosion of Flight 800 off Long Island in 1996 happened after jet was hit by projectile.

    A new film about the TWA Flight 800 crash 17 years ago claims a missile was fired at the aircraft.

    Several experts and investigators say the US government’s aviation agency and the FBI tampered with evidence.

    But the National Transportation Safety Board maintains it will only re-open the case if there is compelling new evidence.
