The only positive thing I can come up with is that these planes had very light loads.

There's nothing positive to say about this. A life is still a life lost. And these planes however indirect and no fault to its occupants caused the destruction of the World Trade Centre Buildings.

The World stands still today.

I guess we can thank God for the downturn in loads... in any case, the loss of so much in so little time is unprecedented on US soil.

Doesn't it seem a bit unusual to have FOUR large jets going transcon with such extremely light loads?

I mean, 80 people on a 767??????


I wonder if they will find the black boxes.

I think the reason Transcons were used was because they would be carrying full fuel tanks. Thus more of an explosion, and more would burn.
