The FMS equipment used in all the major aircraft (including the 767 I fly) can be programmed to fly to any designated waypoint, and you can create a waypoint by inserting the lat/long coordinates. The problem would be finding the exact
coordinates of the particular tower they wished to hit.
After reading that thread, I can only say that the 767, or any other commercial passenger plane can not fly itself to the destination!!!
I could sit all day in the cockpit at the airport punching buttons on the FMS and it wouldn't go anywhere until we taxied it out and took off, engaging the FMS after we climbed from the runway!! The wheels will not retract themselves. The plane will not turn according to ATC vectors on its own! The plane will not exceed airspeed limitations on its own as the WTC planes did!
That said, the 'letsroll911' website makes me sick. It is pure publicity seeking at its worst from someone who doesn't give a d@mn about anyone except himself and his own need for publicity. He and all the other conspiricy people are making a mockery of the tragedy. It is sick, ugly, false, and mean spirited muckraking that should be ignored by anyone with an IQ
greater than a grape.
One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.
