How Did They Get In The Cockpit?

Thu Sep 13, 2001 1:39 am

As far as I know, the terrorists only carried knives. A knife can't break into a cockpit door. How did they get in?

According to Radio reports here this morning it appears that the hijackers attacked some of the flight attendants with knives to entice out some of the flight crew.

Two terrorsits problaby just broke the door right down or they could've had some way of geting like like a code. This was well executed so I did think it was an inside job. This plan must have alot of people because 2 or 3 couldn't have planned this on their own.

Cockpit doors are very easy to kick in, the are designed so crews can easily escapt if they have problems with the handle.
