Families, friends and colleagues of the victims of the T-W-A crash gathered today to mourn and to remember.
There were services in New York, St. Louis, Los Angeles, not to mention church services in the hometowns of many of the victims.

Meanwhile, today was a frustrating day for investigators trying to find the wreckage, and the flight data recorders, from TWA Flight 800.
An underwater video camera, which officials hoped would show the way to what they think is a large piece of wreckage, didn't work out, and seas were too rough to send divers under water.
But workers are still finding other bits of debris from Wednesday's crash.
