Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800 will air on CNN July 15 at 9pm ET

Eighteen years ago, TWA Flight 800 exploded in the sky over the shores of Long Island, New York, shortly after taking off. Bound for Paris, 230 people were on board and no one survived.

The suspicion of terrorism was almost immediate as many eye-witnesses described a streak of light heading towards the plane before it blew up. In the weeks, months and then years afterwards, the biggest and most intense investigation in aviation history at the time, ensued.

Eventually, the U.S. government offered their best explanation for what happened to TWA Flight 800 but to this day, many still question if they got it right.

CNN Special Report: Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800 reconstructs the events that unfolded on that fateful day and the four year investigation that followed it by speaking with eyewitnesses, investigators and family members. The special includes interviews with Leon Panetta, James Kallstrom, head of the FBI’s TWA Flight 800 investigation and Joe Lychner who lost his wife and two daughters on the flight.

CNN Special Report: Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800 will air on July 15 at 9pm ET on CNN

The special will re-air on Tuesday at 12am and on Sunday, July 20 at 7pm ET. The hour will also air on CNN international on Thursday, July 17 at 10pm ET.

AC360: VA Secretary Shinseki breaks his silence and says he is not quitting

Anderson Cooper 360° has been reporting on allegations of veterans dying while waiting for care at VA hospitals. Drew Griffin spoke with a doctor who claimed one hospital was even keeping a secret waiting list.

Now he's breaking his silence, but he is still not speaking with Drew.

AC360 EXCLUSIVE – Elgin Baylor on Donald Sterling: Justice has been served

Tonight on Anderson Cooper 360°, former Clippers G.M. Elgin Baylor and his wife Elaine spoke exclusively to Anderson Cooper for the first time since news of the Sterling tape broke.

Baylor is an 11-time NBA All Star and a Basketball Hall of Famer. For more than two decades, he was the General Manager of the L.A. Clippers. He says he was fired unfairly and filed a wrongful-termination suit against the team, naming Donald Sterling directly in his complaint.

He talked to Cooper about his experience working for Sterling and how Sterling would bring women into the locker room and point out the black players saying “Look at those beautiful black bodies.”
