In 1996, TWA Flight 800 exploded off the coast of New York.

The crash grabbed the world's attention when 230 people died. It became the NTSB's longest, most complicated and expensive investigation in history, lasting four years and costing $40 million.

But most people don't know that the plane from one of the worst aviation disasters in American history is largely reassembled and in the DC area.

The 747 sits in an Ashburn warehouse on a satellite campus of George Washington University.

As Sam Sweeney explains, that plane helps keep all of us safer.
