TWA Flight 800 alternative theories allege that the crash of Trans World Airlines Flt 800 (TWA 800) was due to causes other than those determined by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the official investigative agency. The NTSB stated that the probable cause of the crash of TWA 800 was an explosion of flammable fuel/air vapors in a fuel tank, most likely from a short-circuit. The most prevalent TWA 800 alternative theories state that the crash was due to either a U.S. Navy or terrorist missile strike, or alternatively an on-board bomb.
