Investigators think a bomb exploded in the front cargo section of T-W-A Flight 800.
A source close to the investigation says experts have not ruled out the possibility of a missile, nor will they flat out say it wasn't mechanical failure.
But the source says investigators are focusing on the bomb theory.
Search crews working today lifted and removed a chunk of wing and large piece of landing gear of T-W-A Flight 800 from the ocean floor.

They have also found a front part of Flight 800 that might contain the cockpit.
