    fleet entering W 105 W 105 and W106 are FAA Warning Areas only These areas do not show up on nautical charts and a check with the US Coast Guard confirms that there are no military warning areas anywhere off the south coast of Long Island Further reviews of Notices to Mariners confirm that there were no maritime exercises scheduled in the immediate vicinity of W 105 W 106 in the month of July 1996 These same Notice to Mariners show scheduled firing exercises off the coast of MASS but nowhere near Long Island It is clear from this review that W 105 and W 106 are Aviation Warning Areas only so any implication that radar showing ships entering the area proves they were Navy ships is clearly inappropriate CDR Donaldson believes that the radar data could just as easily show commercial and sport fishermen out fishing and nothing more You decide 1 25 01 Nautical Chart of Crash Area 1 20 01 Aeronautical Chart of Crash Area 1 20 01 Chart Showing Location of Military Exercise Area on 7 17 96 1 25 01 Updated Plot of Crash Site with Radar Overlay jpg version Shows boats aircraft in the

    a bomb attack that killed five Americans in Saudi Arabia in November But the State Department said it had viewed the warning letter as a political tract and not as a specific threat of an extremist attack To us it seemed to be a general political tract We don t see it as a specific threat State Department spokesman Nicholas Burns said of the letter sent to Al Hayat an Arabic language newspaper published in London July 19 1996 New York Times A specific warning about the flight had been sent by an extremist Saudi organization called the Movement of Islamic Change the organization that claimed responsibility for blowing up US military personnel in Saudi Arabia last November Late this morning we got a copy of a letter in Arabic that we then had translated and got it to the FBI said a State Department spokesman It s a statement that seems aimed at the Saudi regime or the American presence in Saudi Arabia Officials said they were reviewing a telephone call placed to a Tampa Florida television station yesterday morning from a man who identified himself as a member of a jihad and claimed responsibility for the crash July 23 1996 The London Times The Tel Aviv paper Yediot Ahronot disclosed yesterday that Israel had been asked by the CIA to check the Athens New York passenger list of TWA Flight 800 The involvement of Mossad Israel s secret service emerged after it was made known that the Israelis warned US Intelligence before the disaster that an American aircraft would be the target of sabotage or hijacking by Islamic extremists The American intelligence agency gave Mossad the passenger list of the TWA plane from Athens to New York and asked that it check the passengers backgrounds to reveal if one of them had connections to a terror group reported the paper which has close links to the Israeli security services Earlier this month a Mossad officer monitoring Middle East terrorist groups passed an unspecific warning to his American counterpart in TelAviv The officer said The threat of sabotage or a hijacking against an American plane was analysed and considered serious enough for us to pass on to the Americans It was then up to the Americans to assess the dangers and decide whether to pass it on to their airlines August 25 1996 Times of London U S officials are investigating reports that Islamic terrorists have smuggled Stinger ground to air missiles into the United States from Pakistan Senior Iranian sources close to the fundamentalist regime in Tehran claimed this weekend that TWA flight 800 was shot down last month by one of three shoulder fired Stingers of the type used by Islamic guerrillas during the Afghanistan war The sources said the missiles arrived in America seven months ago after being shipped from Karachi via Rotterdam and on to the Canadian port of Halifax They claimed an Egyptian fundamentalist group backed by Iran was responsible for smuggling the weapons

    estimated They used the radar data to plot the distance traveled during each radar sweep but the altitude has to be calculated To calculate the altitude for the ballistic fall scenario they plotted the horizontal distance traveled and assumed a rate of fall of over 624 ft sec by the time the aircraft hit the water In my plot I used the same methodology and the same data from the JFK radar I then assumed a rate of fall that increases with the acceleration of gravity V 32 ft sec 2 At some point a falling body reaches Terminal Velocity There is no mention of Terminal Velocity in the Trajectory Study but they used a figure of over 624 ft sec To put some perspective to Terminal Velocity below is a list of terminal velocities of various bodies Skydiver 200 ft sec Meteorite 220 ft sec Rocket booster 440 ft sec F14 in a flat spin 450 ft sec Terminal Velocity is affected by Mass weight and surface area A bowling ball will fall faster than a box of the same weight The drag of an object with a large surface area will slow the object down until the effect of gravity is in equilibrium with the resistance of the air pressure against the surface of the object It is therefore more likely that a crippled 747 which is falling like a rock would fall at a rate of speed similar to an F14 or 450 ft sec In the table below I have overlaid a computer simulation of the rate of fall using all the same data except I used a terminal velocity of 450 ft sec You can see from the new plot that if you use 450 ft sec as the terminal velocity it will reach the
