If it was a missile, the scenario would be all too familiar to Afton author Doug Hornig.
You see, in the late 19-80's Hornig wrote a book called "Stinger" where a terrorist brings down a 7-47 over Boston Harbor with a stinger missile.

Hornig's reaction when he first heard that investigators were looking into the possibility of a missile might surprise some people.

Horning says he thinks it's very possible a missile could have destroyed the T-W-A plane, but he doesn't think it was a stinger.
