they were carrying corneas in a donor box in the cockpit. At the time there was initial speculation that a bomb could have been put on board this way but that was later disproved.

Thanks Robert. Makes sense now.

I remember it like it was last night.  I was at the beach kayaking and saw it.  It was like a fiery gash in the sky opened up.  It went up a little then dropped.  I could draw a picture of it with my eyes closed to this day.

And to the inevitable next question, before someone bothers asking... no I did not see a missile, asteroid, or any other shape, line, trail, etc.

Opened up Flight Simulator 2004 and did TWA 800 following the stop over in Paris then onto LIRF. In tribute to TWA 800 today Sad

Great minds think alike...I did the same thing. I took off at exactly 20:19 lcl KJFK in a TWA B747-257B. Twelve minutes later I was over the general location of the crash site, which is near RICED intersection, (48 miles on the JFK VOR 104 Radial, and 19 miles from Hamton VOR on the 236 Radial roughly(see chart pic below)). Flew over-night, landed at LFPG the following morning, then on to LIRF. I know N93119 was actually a B747-131, but close enough...

Great to see other people do this flight as well. I was using the same TWA B747-131 (everything was the same thing except for the reg.)
