Description
The investigation into the crash of TWA Flight 800 was the most expensive and extensive aviation-disaster probe in history: Millions of dollars were spent, thousands of experts were consulted, and hundreds of pieces of aircraft wreckage were painstakingly reconstructed in an effort to determine what happened.

Yet, in this shocking exposé, journalist Christine Negroni reveals that the tragedy could have been prevented had government regulators and aircraft manufacturers acted on a known design flaw that had contributed to more than a dozen similar catastrophes in the three decades leading up to the crash of Flight 800.

Writing with exceptional clarity, weaving together vivid personal stories and drawing from extensive research, Christine Negroni presents this compelling account of a disaster that didn't have to happen.
