Subject: The TWA Flight 800 Explosion
Ref. NTSB Identification DCA96MA070
(This is a follow-up to our PSI TECH interim report, dated September 30, 1996)
Technical Remote Viewing Final Assessment:
1. The critical event leading to the TWA Flight 800 explosion was a catastrophic failure of a hydraulic system component in the Boeing 747-100, specifically, the air driven pump (ADP) in System 3.
2. As it flew apart, a large piece (i.e., broken main shaft/gear tooth/turbine blade) of the ADP punctured fuel lines, or a fuel tank itself.
3. A precursor explosion followed, initiated by dripping/leaking fuel, which formed a fuel-air mist, the stoichiometry of which supported combustion.
4. The resulting fireball caused either the No. 3 main fuel tank or the center wing tank to explode. This event severed the right wing, prior to complete conflagration of the airplane.
I hope that this information assists in your investigation of this tragic aviation accident.
