About The 4th Aircraft

Fri Sep 14, 2001 1:31 am

The 4th aircraft was hijaked but crashed near Pittsburgh which makes no sense because the aircraft was (I suppose) targeted to another important building or something.So is there a chance that they shot down the aircraft?

CNN just reported that there has now been "debris" found 6 miles from the main crash site. So SOMETHING happened in advance of that plane coming down.

Officials have denied that US AirForce shot down the plane. The latest I've heard was that the passengers overpowered the hijackers and for some reason they crashed.

The passengers reported that the hijackers claimed they had a bomb.

With that in mind, they also knew of the attacks on the WTC. It is feesable that they decided that the aircraft should be destroyed before it could be used as a murder weapon against thousands.

It's reported that two seperate phone callers from that plane reported that they were going to try to retake it.

If this is true, Bless them. No Medal of Courage is worthy of their actions and sacrifice.
