Search and recovery teams will be looking for more bodies and wreckage this morning after finding a large section of T-W-A Flight 800 on the ocean floor.
They hope this latest discovery will help them determine whether a bomb or a mechanical malfunction caused the explosion that sent 230 people to a watery mass grave off New York's Long Island.
Meantime, for the families of the victims yesterday was a day of tears, sorrow, and remembrance.
