    Could a small group of untrained students really overpower the cabin crew, take control of a sophisticated aircraft and expertly and exactly hit the twin towers with such precision? You only have to blink to fly straight past them then you'd have to do a massive circle to try again. Is there a cockpit recording of what was going on?

    Is it possible?

    Too many things just dont add up, why didn't the pilots set the code for unlawful interferance on their transponders?

    Did the "Twin Towers" actually exist? Was it something made up in Hollywood? Two massive buildings! Where are they now?


    Yes the "Twin Towers" was a hoax! They never existed!

    But was there a transponder set up in the towers and the planes set to override the pilot and fly straight into them? :confused:

    No, there where a few extremist hijackers who took control of the planes, and then flew them into the towers. They had been to flight training school so knew the basics.

    Don't forget that security then wasn't like it is now. Wouldn't surprise me if one of the actually asked the attendant can I go see the cockpit!

    I doubt very much this was a mock up and I know there are conspiracy theorists out there but about a year after it happened I was watching a documentary on it and one thing still puzzles me was when the second plane hit the towers there was some pilots who have retired and some current and one guy who had over 40years flying experience fro vietnam to modern day passanger planes said he would not be able to manouver that plane the way it was handled and other pilots concurred and he was then talking about it being fly wired??????????

    I met one of them in an Arizona flying school. The instructor who was a mate of mine wanted to stop training him as he had a bad attitude to learning how to fly properly and things in general. However he paid in advance so owner said to continue.........

    Back in those days you could turn up to any jet flight simulator, pay a few hundred bucks, and get to "fly around" in a modern airplane for an hour. They are very easy to fly once you get the hang of it, and it doesn't take long. Now not so easy, especially if you aren't a Yank.

    You could get a 737 type rating for a few thousand bucks (certainly less than ten) including time in the real thing for your test.

    The Airbus is easier to fly.

    It's probably the other way around. ;)

    There is a say, everything that goes up must come down. I am not sure who said it, was it Einstein or Newton who said that.

    and what goes round comes back!

    :rolleyes:

    I was up in one of those micro planes a few weeks back (the ones with the lawnmower engines) and could have flown it no problem into a ditch. :LOL:

    The guy I was up with incidentally is a wing suit diver and base jumping enthusiast.
    He funds his hobby by taking people up for a flight.
    My flight was free. :mrgreen:
