A quick search will bring up all manner of conspiracy theories, follow-ups on the investigation, photos, etc.

Here are the basics, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TWA_Flight_800

Trans World Airlines Flight 800 (TWA 800) was a Boeing 747-100 that exploded and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean near East Moriches, New York, on July 17, 1996, at about 8:31 p.m. EDT, 12 minutes after takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport on a scheduled international passenger flight to Rome, with a stopover in Paris. All 230 people on board died in the crash; it is the third-deadliest aviation accident in U.S. history.

His all night coverage of this tragedy is what made Brian Williams a star on NBC News. He wasn't exactly an unknown, but his solo stint that night made people take notice of him.

In his account, the flight was forced down after being hit by an RPG.
