This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Yes, I would like to see this exhibit as soon as I can.


Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

One small error. The description of the seatbelt from AA 11 states that the a/c was previously owned by TWA. All four aircraft involved were operated by AA and UA since new.

Nevertheless, it's powerful stuff that I'll make time to see if my travels take me to DC in the near future.

Only two actual aircraft objects are on display. The aircraft fuselage fragment and marked fuselage section are exhibited next to some steel columns from the WTC. The fuselage fragment shows the passenger window frame quite clearly, while the marked fuselage section appears to be part of the wing box as it is painted light grey and has stringers that are not of the type used in the fuselage.

Also on display is the Department of Justice telephone that Ted Olson received a phone call from his wife Barbara, calling from American flight 77.
