Bob Edwards Speaks With Barney Rawlings,

a retired pilot who flew with TWA for more than 43 years, about last weeks' TWA crash that killed 230 people. The airline lost 54 employees in the crash...along with the 18 member flight crew, there were 36 other TWA workers aboard Flight 800. Before retiring in 1988, Rawlings often flew the same route...from New York to Paris...and even piloted the very PLANE that crashed.
