Flight 800 Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Memorial to the 230 people killed in the crash of TWA Flight 800, July 17, 1996. Dedicated on July 14, 2002, It is located on a bluff overlooking Island's south shore. The bluff is the nearest point of land to where the plane went down and overlooks a beach where debris washed ashore. The black granite memorial, designed by architect David Busch, has a gray wave and 230 gray doves on one side and the names of the victims inscribed on the other. The Paris-bound Boeing 747 exploded in a fireball at 13,700 feet, minutes after leaving John F. Kennedy International Airport. The National Transportation Safety Board ruled two years ago that an explosion in the center fuel tank caused the aircraft to disintegrate in flight. It said vapors in the nearly-empty tank probably were ignited by a spark in wiring. Although some suspected that the aircraft was destroyed by sabotage or an errant missile, the FBI concluded in a separate criminal investigation that there was no evidence a bomb or missile destroyed the plane.
