The grim salvage work continues today at the crash site of T-W-A flight 800 off the coast of Long Island, New York.
Searchers are still looking for more bodies in some large pieces of the wreckage some 100 feet deep.
They're also hoping to find the key to the explosion that tore the plane apart one week ago today.
Despite reports to the contrary, federal officials say they have NOT found anything yet to indicate a bomb.
Elizabeth Kaledin has more on the search.
