The 1970 hijacks do not compare with 9/11. The aircraft were hijacked to the Jordanian desert and blown up after demands were made and not met. My best recollection is that the crews and passengers were unharmed and there was certainly not the terrible colateral damage and casualties of 9/11.
Please note that the above does not mean that I in anyway condone the 1970 hijackings. I am simply saying they were very different to those of 31 years later.

Quoting N908AW (Reply 3): Wrong. Both towers weren't finished until 1973.
Then the Time Magazine article I pulled that from is inaccurate... It said that the north tower was completed in 1970 and the other in 1972... I did not say that these hijackings were EXACTLY the same as the ones on 9-11. I saw the beginning of the program. I know that these planes were flown to the middle east and blown up rather than turned into airborn missiles... I meant that there were a few similarities and I simply pointed them out. I suppose I should have been more specific when I mentioned them...
Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Just watched it and it was very interesting. Although a lot of the clips were not authentic, there were some great scenes of old airliners, not to mention the horrible sight of the beautiful SVC-10, DC-8 and 707 being blown up, but that is probably alright with Fly2CHC.
One should note that an interesting setting appeared to be inside a CV-990 in Mojave. I think it maybe the NASA bird!
