Yes, I'm MD-90.

Mon Sep 17, 2001 5:26 am

I had totally forgotten about that post where I speculated whether the WTC buildings could withstand a 767-300 impact. I had read something in Time, or Newsweek or some magazine like that about extremely large buildings and how well they could resist natural disasters. Gosh, that seems incredibly inappropriate and downright hellish right now. But no, I'm not a terrorist. I live in the South (you'll understand if I don't want to give the specific state right now, you guys have scared me out of my wits!). I'm a senior in high school. We were outside marching when this happened; didn't find out about it till we came in around 9:15 Central Time.

There's a 62 ct. (shut down now) post where a whole bunch of people got really freaked out about something pointless at the time I posted it about the WTC.

MD-90- I fully believe that you were just speculating in that post...as I'm sure that it would interest you after seeing it in a mag. Has anyone contacted/questioned you yet? Anyways...good luck...

MD-90, you freaked out a lot of people and even made some leave. It is just weird you would ask a question like you did. The "wanna bet", now seems like a threat after what happened. But hey, it was obviously a misunderstanding and nice to meet ya! Smile/happy/getting dizzy FBI talk to ya yet? They are nice guys (I know a few) and will laugh it up with you if they talk to you about it, so don't worry.

Hi, I started that post that you referred to which received the huge amount of replies, but I was not the first to notice the post you made last year. I just wanted to point out that it was really freaky how such a topic was discussed a year ago, and how scary it was to think that this tragedy actually happened. Subsequently it became a virtual 'man-hunt' which was not what I had intended and eventually requested it's deletion which thus followed.
Hopefully you understand,
Regards,

Hi MD90,somepeople in this forum were so sure that you were Usama Bin Laden sitting in acave at Afganistan explaining his terror acts "exclusively for airliners.net forumers" I think they'll be upset that you are a high school senior and also there's another thing they should be upset which is "using internet in Afganistan is strictly forbidden because its evils act" Smile

MD-90,

Good to see that you're OK. On behalf of all of us who called the FBI (myself included), I want to say that we didn't mean to scare or inconvienince you.

You must understand that when we saw that post, and how close it was to actual events, that we were spooked, to say the least. Calling the FBI, in cases like this, is the prudent and logical thing to do.

I hope that this doesn't sour you on this forum -- we mean no personal harm, we were just reacting to something that at face value was pretty chilling.

I likewise apologize for any inconvenience caused and suggest you have a look at www.cruel.com. I reported to you to Johan rather than the FBI--I guess you're still here and that there was no problem. I welcome you back to the forum--I just hope that some of your topics aren't so morbid and eerie as the one a year ago.  Smile

On behalf of all my fellow normal buddies here on a.net, I'd like to apologize for the supidity of some people speculating that you were involved. They have this rare syndrom that nobody can find a cure for, it's called somthing like "have no life" and another common one is "I like to play cop" or somthing....anyways- good to hear from you.

Welcome back dude!

Dude, to be completely honest with you, more than a handful of us have thought the same thoughts that you have.
I know that when I first read about that B-25 going into the Empire State Bldg during WWII, I thought of the likelihood of that happening again.
It's just extremely unfortunate that it came true and that you had to deal with the many personalities here.
But I wanted to thank you for making this a better forum! Apparently, so many people though that you were a part of the conspiracy theory that they left!
The only thing I found weird was this: since you are MD-90, I thought you like them most. So why didn't you ask your quest. with MD-90 in place of 757,767?

If only y'all had just "listened" to me when I said we didn't need another terrorist attack... We wouldn't need this thread for apologies, we wouldn't have to report MD-90... The thread would have just died... But now, we all have a sense of guilt about it (including me, because I wrote in a second time.)

Better luck and judgement next time,

I sort of figured something big like a 747 would topple one of the towers, so I wasn't sure about a 767. I fly Delta's 767-300ERs every once in a while, so....

I wasn't here because school started. Band stuff (and since I'm a senior and the clarinet section leader) started in mid-July, and I haven't had much free time since then.

Md-90,

You have to understand that after such a tragic thing happened, poeople are simply doing there duty in reporting your posts to the FBI, I know I did.
Nothing agisn't you, but you must understand why we did this.
And to all you who who say we were being extreme, obviously you need some help. If somebody had killed your uncle too and then you saw a earlier post on how to kill him, you would call every damn goverment office you could find the number for.

And since you guys all think I'm some spooky weirdo, believe me, I'm not. I'm interested in possibly being an architect (I like big buildings, bridges, dams, that sort of stuff).

And who's calling my Kolb Mark III and Berkut PETTY? when are you going to build your own 737?

and while I am hearing and vision impaired, I wear contacts and I get by w/o my hearing aid, so no, it doesn't depress me. I'm a normal high school student.

Well, I talked to the guy who wrote the eprairie article. It was an interesting conversation.

This almost tops the time I was hit by a truck during band camp in July (idiot jumped the curb and I hit the side of the fullsized Chevy pickup @ about 20 mph). At least there was no physical pain this time.

Thankfully our suspicion about you were incorrect, but by no means do I regret contacting the FBI. I am shocked and sad that people would criticize someone for reporting potential evidence in this horrific crime no matter what it may be. To say ("I know a good lawyer if you want to sue anyone on this site.") is an outright disgusting remark in my opinion. Sadly many crimes are not solved because vital information is not reported. It is in fact a crime to with hold evidence. So for those of you that are now lashing out against the few that thought the thread in question was suspicious enough to contact the FBI, shame on you.

And to answer another guy's question, I do consider the MD-90 (at least from an engine, pax, and asethetic standpoints) to be the best 150 or seat airliner in the skies. But the WTC towers are huge! I figured they could shrug off an MD-90.

And Johan, I'm sorry for posting this in the regular aviation forum, but I wanted to make sure everyone saw it.

md90. Not so weird mate. The insurance industry relies heavily on scenario creation to gauge risk when statistics wont do. I watched an hour doco on terrorism from hijacks in the seventies to current recently and
saw a risk of this very same thing almost automatically.
There was a magazine article I read 20yrs ago which is much more scarier (if that is not in poor taste) with a not so different scenario.
For obvious reasons I wont tell you.
Best of luck.

MD-90 - I was wondering in what way you would hear from the authorities, but was expecting a less pleasant approach. I have just noticed your original post having been rread 46,000 times (and counting)! Must be the most read post here! I imagine it has also directed many hundreds (thousands?) of new visitors to this site.

If you would not answer on this I guess the FBI would very soon knocked on your door.
I understand why people react. It's a human reaction.

This is unbeleiveable. I can't understand the paranoid delusions of people in here. There is a reason why FBI agents are trained for as long as they are. They THINK before making acusations. They follow their thoughts through before making any sort of decision of action on it. It was possible to do that here, but instead, you've drawn useless attention to a poor high school kid.

MD-90 - Well.. at least you'll have another story to tell "One time, at band camp, I got called by the FBI because some morons online accused me of masterminding a terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre!"  Smile
