Was Flight 93
Witnesses Heard Explosions Before Flight 93 Nose-Dived
A passenger inside a locked bathroom called
emergency dispatchers using his cell phone.
According to dispatch supervisor Glenn Cramer
the man said the plane "was going down.
He heard some sort of explosion and saw white smoke coming from the plane."
Ernie Stuhl, the mayor of Shanksville:
"I know of two people -- I will not mention names -- that heard a missile.
They both live very close, within a couple of hundred yards...
This one fellow's served in Vietnam and he says he's heard them,
and he heard one that day." He adds that based on what he has learned,
F-16's were "very, very close."
Laura Temyer of Hooversville:
"I heard like a boom and the engine sounded funny.
I heard two more booms -- and then I did not hear anything.
I think the plane was shot down," insists Temyer,
who said she has twice told her story to the FBI.
What's more, she insists that people she knows in state
law enforcement have told her the same thing,
that the plane was shot down
and that decompression sucked objects from the aircraft,
explaining why there was a wide debris field.
... said he heard two loud bangs before watching the plane
take a downward turn of nearly 90 degrees.
She hears a loud bang and sees the plane bank to the side.
Debris From Flight 93 Was Scattered Far From the Crash Site
The accounts of many eyewitnesses and the shape of the impact crater confirm that Flight 93 plunged into the ground from a nearly vertical trajectory. Yet pieces of plane debris were found far from the crash site, in three separate debris fields.
Primary Debris Field: 2000 Feet Wide:
Indian Lake and New Baltimore: 3 and 8 Miles Away:
The wind that day was 9 mph, and could not have carried debris from the impact crater to locations 8 miles away.
The 9/11 Commission Rewrote the Time of Flight 93's Crash
Flight 93 Crashed at 10:06
Forty-five seconds after telling Fritz to evacuate the Johnstown tower,
Cleveland Air Traffic Control phoned again.
"They said to disregard.
The aircraft had turned to the south and they lost radar contact with him."
The Federal Aviation Administration said yesterday it turned over to the FBI
a radar record of United Airlines Flight 93's route.
The data traced the Boeing 757-200 from its takeoff from Newark, N.J.,
to its violent end at 10:06 a.m., just outside Shanksville,
about 80 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
Also, according to sources, the last seconds of the cockpit voice recorder
are the loud sounds of wind, hinting at a possible hole somewhere in the
fuselage. What caused the smoke and explosion? Why the wind sounds?
The 9/11 Commission Claims the Crash was at 10:03
Unfortunately, the public does not have access to any of the sources that the Commission claims supports its crash time of 10:03.
Claims Flight 93 Didn't Crash
Hiding Flight 93's Shoot-Down: the Tip of the Iceberg
Why did the Commission Change the Crash Time?
The debris trail supports the second possibility: a decompression miles east of the primary crash site suggests the passengers had gained control and reversed direction before being shot down. If 9/11 was an inside job, the landing of Flight 93 may have exposed the plan.
What Else is the Commission Hiding?
