In 1996, the crash of Trans World Airlines Flight 800 off New York raised national concern about the safety and security of civil aviation. In response, President Clinton created the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security, which was chaired by Vice President Gore. The Commission issued an initial report on September 9, 1996, with 20 specific recommendations for improving aviation security. On February 12, 1997, the Commission issued its Final Report with 57 recommendations pertaining to aviation safety, security, air traffic control, and disaster response.
