On the subject of the CIA animation, however, no witnesses are more critical than the two pilots of an Eastwind Flight 507 from Boston to Trenton, First Officer Vincent Fuschetti and Capt. David McCLaine.
...
McClaine described the plane with its landing lights still on as "definitely the brightest light in the sky. As Flight 800 approached them at a slightly lower altitude and began crossing its path from right to left, McClaine flicked on his own inboard landing light to signal to the pilots of TWA 800 that he and Fuschetti had the aircraft in sight.
...
Within 10 seconds of witnessing the explosion, McClaine called in the explosion to Boston air-traffic control. He was the first one to do so. The FBI knew this by day two:
Eastwind: "We just saw an explosion out here, Stinger Bee 507 (Dave McClaine, Captain, Eastwind Airlines)"
...
Fuschetti and McClaine both witnessed the initial explosion.
...
Although McClaine and Fuschetti could not see a missile streak from their angle, they undoubtedly saw the first explosion and the immediate plunge of the plane into the sea.
...
Indeed, McClaine was telling Boston air-traffic control that the plane "just went down in the water" within 10 to 15 seconds of that first blast.
This may well explain why the NTSB never interviewed Fuschetti and did not interview McClaine until March 25, 1999, nearly a year and a half after the FBI closed the criminal case with a showing of the CIA video.
...
Although McClaine was by no means the "only person," Young's acknowledgement boldly refutes the CIA claim that no one had seen the initial explosion.
...
Answered McClaine, "None at all."
"I didn't see it pitch up, no," McClaine elaborated. "Everything ended right there at that explosion as far as I'm concerned. When McClaine ironically ventured a far-fetched scenario that could have resulted in the CIA's zoom-climb, Young responded in the same spirit, "We'd be cutting new trails in aviation if we could do that.
...
A few weeks after its interview with McClaine, the NTSB witness group managed to secure an interview with the two CIA analysts responsible for the video, now a full 18 months after the video's sole showing.
...
"If [the nose-less plane] had ascended," Young asked the analyst rhetorically, "[McClaine] would have been concerned because it ascended right through his altitude.

One had to do with the testimony of pilot David McClaine who witnessed the crash from an Eastwinds airliner about three thousand feet above TWA Flight 800 and some twenty miles away.
...
"I think [McClaine] would have noticed [the climb]," he said sarcastically. "Your analysis has it zooming to above his altitude."
In "Witnessed," CNN allows McLaine to make the case that when he saw the explosion, "[TWA 800] went down, not up. . . . The wings fell right off the airplane right away. So how is it going to climb, or what if it had no wings? McLaine also conceded that a missile "could have come from the other side of the airplane," but from his position above TWA 800, he did not see it.
News Flash

Captain Dave McClaine and First Officer Vince Fuschetti were on Eastwind 507 which was descending head-on towards TWA800 ( Eastwind 507 was descending to 16,000 feet and TWA800 was climbing to 15,000 feet until they would be clear of each other).
...
McClaine and Fuschetti were visually tracking the landing lights of TWA800.
...
McClaine reached up to turn on his own landing lights as a signal to TWA800 that he had him in sight. At that moment TWA800 exploded in a ball of flames and TWA800 fell to the ocean in two flaming streams. There was no zoom-climb. McClaine reported what he saw to ATC. Alitalia 609 was the trip following TWA800. He came on the air and confirmed McClaine's report. Virgin Atlantic 009 was inbound from London and was north of TWA800. He came on the air and confirmed McClaine's report.

Just as he flicked on his light, wrote McClaine in his report to Eastwind Airline immediately after the crash, "The other aircraft exploded into a very large ball of flames."At this point, the two aircraft were less than 20 miles apart."Almost immediately," observed McClaine, "two flaming objects, with flames trailing about 4,000 feet behind them, fell out of the bottom of the ball of flame."Within 10 seconds of witnessing the explosion, McClaine called in the explosion to Boston air-traffic control.He was the first one to do so.The FBI knew this by day two:
