Pentagon Attack Hits Navy Hard American Airlines Flight 77, a Boeing 757 loaded with enough fuel for a transcontinental journey, cleared the crest of a small ridge in Arlington, Va., by a few hundred feet with its engines wailing (Aviation Week)
"Tomorrow always belongs to us" "Then I looked up to my left and saw an American Airlines jet flying right at me. The jet roared over my head, clearing my car by about 25 feet. The tail of the plane clipped the overhanging exit sign above me as it headed straight at the Pentagon." (USA Today)
After the Attacks: Communications; New Perspective on the Issue Of Cell Phone Use in Planes The debate over the use of wireless phones on commercial airline flights may intensify in light of news this week that passengers aboard the hijacked airliners that crashed in Pennsylvania and Washington called loved ones from the air shortly before they died.
As many airline commuters are well aware, federal law prohibits the use of wireless communications devices once a commercial airplane leaves its gate. Those rules, created out of concern that communications in the air and on ground-based networks could be disrupted, were initially adopted in the mid-1980's, after the first commercial cellular telephones were made available.
When they can get away with it, passengers often disregard those rules -- as did passengers on the hijacked jets, in response to an obvious emergency. And news of those desperate calls has left many people wondering how, and how well, cell phones work on airplanes in flight, and whether their use does interfere with other communications signals.
According to industry experts, it is possible to use cell phones with varying success during the ascent and descent of commercial airline flights, although the difficulty of maintaining a signal appears to increase as planes gain altitude. Some older phones, which have stronger transmitters and operate on analog networks, can be used at a maximum altitude of 10 miles, while phones on newer digital systems can work at altitudes of 5 to 6 miles. A typical airline cruising altitude would be 35,000 feet, or about 6.6 miles. (New York Times)
FBI Announces List of 19 Hijackers The following is a list of the nineteen (19) individuals who have been identified as hijackers aboard the four airliners that crashed on September 11, 2001, into the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon, and Stony Creek Township, Pennsylvania.

The Day the FAA Stopped the World "At 9:25, Garvey, in an historic and admirable step, and almost certainly after getting an okay from the White House, initiated a national ground stop, which forbids takeoffs and requires planes in the air to get down as soon as reasonable. The order, which has never been implemented since flying was invented in 1903, applied to virtually every single kind of machine that can takeoff, civilian, military, or law enforcement" (Time Magazine)
