On 9-11, i'll were piloting a "transcon" flying journey, probably together with a visit from Boston to l. a., or from Washington D.C. to la. The 9-11 terrorist hijackings have been my routes and my plane, the Boeing 757 and 767. The terrorists can have selected considered one of my flights. as an alternative, i used to be on holiday with my relations, status around the road from the White condo whilst the assaults happened. We felt and heard American airways Flight seventy seven because it crashed into the Pentagon, without end altering my perspective.
Less than one month after flying used to be resumed following Sept. 11, a deranged passenger broke down my cockpit door with the rationale to kill the "terrorist pilots" he suggestion have been flying the plane. whereas trying to land, I later figured out we have been virtually shot down by way of F-16's. this can be my tale, yet what approximately Sept. 11 itself? How may perhaps it have occurred within the first position? On our soil? How may well this ensue to the main robust kingdom the area has ever identified? To the rustic with its intelligence group, with its army, with our many years of fighting adversaries all over the world? We have been sitting geese! used to be 9-11 a hoax? was once 9-11 a central authority conspiracy like a few imagine the moon landings have been faked by means of the U.S. executive?
Seen in the course of the prism of the September 11 fee findings, we will be able to research the disasters of the intelligence group, the army, the shortcoming of a transparent govt coverage, and the mismanagement of the regulations that have been in position, all of which ended in the Sep 11 assaults. Will one other Sep 11 occur back? Have we realized the tough classes to insure that it'll now not ensue again?
This publication solutions those serious questions and gives my viewpoint of 11th of September from a pilot's element of view.
