    [SIZE=+1]One of the most sacred beliefs about the four jumbo jets hijacked on September 11th, 2001, was that terrified passengers tried to communicate with those safe on the earth. The recent movie, "Flight 93," elevates this belief to a sacrament.[/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]In order to verify that cell phones would have functioned, a test would have had to be performed in 2001, from a Boeing 757-767, moving erratically through the sky, often at low elevation. To my recollection, none were ever performed by any researcher, and certainly no reporter in the mainstream media.[/SIZE] [SIZE=+1][/SIZE] [SIZE=+1]Because NORAD fighter pilots never VISUALLY verified what happened aboard those four Boeings on 9-11, we will never know what occurred in the most crucial part of the plane, the ****pit. Instead we have been given play-by-play cell phone accounts of what occurred. Some of the accounts remain perplexing to say the least.[/SIZE]

    What the heck is a Boeing 757-767? UA 93 was a 757-222.

    More importantly, cellphones work very well flying over land, especially at low altitudes. So well that airlines are trying to convince the FAA that they can interfere with airplane electronics (in fact, they can interfere with the airline being able to charge $6.50 a minute to call from your seat).

    And why does the writer keep talking about NORAD? The plane departed from Newark, NJ on the east coast and went down in PA. NORAD is in Colorado. There are several air bases that would have been closer than NORAD (Cape Cod, for one). It sounds like the writer is throwing the word around to gain some perceived legitimacy...

    Can someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't NORAD a giant radar base?There is no such thing as a "NORAD fighter". Wouldn't local controllers have scrambled jets?
    One of things that is discounted by this guy is that F-15s flying at top speed would have drained their fuel tanks very quickly. He also discounts the fact that no one worked out that these planes were about to fly into buildings. OK, as a traffic controller, you might suspect a hijacking but to make the leap to a suicide bomber flying a plane into a building is BS, pre 9/11 (by which I mean without the information that we now have about these sorts of attacks).
    Pre 9/11, it's asking far too much of people to have put the information together so quickly. Idiots who write this stuff have clearly never had to make life or death decisions under pressure.

    NORAD is now Northern Command or NORTHCOM, it is essentially a command and control facility that has many functions, they monitor missile launches, satellites and things of that nature, but no they do not have their own jets. It is kind of hard to have a Jet takeoff out of a mountain!

    LOL, it would be kind of difficult to have them take off out of a mountain. Of course, nothing is too much for the Illuminati/NORAD conspiracy. Thanks for the link, btw.

    No Problem. I hear they have aliens there as well. Ask Terry I'm sure he knows all about it.

    Uncle Teddy is getting ready for another "fun summer" on Old Cape Cod, he drives his mothers old car up and down the sidewalk in Hyannis, he's going to give his whacko kid "Patches" driving lessons. Last summer was the first time in twelve years that Uncle Teddy didn't fall out of his boat.

    "Hey Clyde isn't that Flight 77 up there"

    "By God your right, I thought that was the plane that hit the Pentagon"

    "The damn thing must have been flying around up there for 5 years"

    "Yeah, must have been them B astard Bushes that bombed the Pentagon"

    Harry needs to be appointed the official leader of the patsfans.com search for flight 77.

    Pre-9/11 it was the policy of this nation not to break the sound barrier by jets flying in pursuit. As mentioned in that article I quoted, it took 82 minutes for jets to get to Payne Stewart's airplance.

    One of the most laughable thing about these conspiracy theorists is how eaasy and simple everything looks with about 5 years of hindsight to work with. But fact of the matter is then when the events were actually ongoing, we were all at home wondering WTF was going on and what was coming next. Fact is we were all caught with our pants down and not even remotely prepared for the type of attack they launched at us.

    During the Clinton Years at a flying school in Florida, not to long after "The Blind Muslim" told Clinton he was coming back to blow up New York City.

    Arab Enters Flying school:
    "Hi, do you teach Arabs how to fly"

    "Sure'"

    "Praise Allah, my name is Mohammad Abu Dabinu Boobut, I would like to learn How to fly a big f-cking Jet Plane"

    "Sure Mohammad"

    "I don't want to land though, Praise Allah"

    "Sure Mohammad, how about taking off"

    "No, just fly, Praise Allah"

    "Sure, OK, lets go"

    "DEATH TO THE INFEDELS"

    Good one, but a bit off the mark ... This is America, remember?

    Arab Enters Flying school:
    "Hi, do you teach Arabs how to fly"

    "Sure'"

    "Praise Allah, my name is Mohammad Abu Dabinu Boobut, I would like to learn How to fly a big f-cking Jet Plane"

    "Sure Mohammad, your tuition check cleared, so come on in!"

    Don't remember when, but they actually tested it at 30,000 feet. The success rate of connecting was something like 0.2% of 1%, which is extremely small and ALMOST impossible, still possible, but very highly unlikely.

    not unless you have an V22 Osprey, Harrier, F35 joint strike, or about one of 20 others. There is a large handful of VTOL aircraft.
