((Search and rescue ships converged on the burning remains of TWA Flight 800.
The jet went down in flames Wednesday night at this spot about 20 miles off the coast of Long Island, New York. The coast guard says there appear to be no survivors among the 229 people on board.
All the witnesses agree the plane exploded in mid-air before going down. everyone's worst fear, that the explosion was caused by an act of sabotage, is so far unfounded. It's still too early to tell why Flight 800 blew up.
Right now, the priority is the search and rescue effort, being coordinated by the U.S. Coast Guard. ((MAYOR RUDOLPH GIULIANI/NEW YORK CITY: MAY WE HAVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE.)) At a somber news conference, New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said the mood is bleak at the crash site.

Flight 800 was an older model 747-100, bound for Paris.
It will be an all night vigil in the hundred-foot waters off Moriches Inlet, as pieces of the plane, and remains of victims, are recovered.
