Don, I think David was trying to imply that the telephone usage may've
caused the crash.
There is absolutely no evidence of this nor that it was shot down--nearest
F16 was over 150 miles away.
There is real evidence though. There is a recording from the cockpit, and
relatives of the victims were allowed to listen to it. The cockpit
recordings & black box data showed the plane crashed very shortly after the
passengers broke or attempted to break into the cabin. The terrorists were
speaking arabic, so I'm sure that was translated by the FAA or whoever to
determine what happened.
There were witnesses on the ground and a nearby small plane that saw the
plane rocking violently just before crashing--an apparent last ditch attempt
to keep the passengers from getting into the cabin.
The black box shows that the plane became inverted at 580MPH just before it
All evidence indicates the terrorists intentionally crashed the plane into
the ground. After all, they were suicidal terrorists!
Two planes for the twin WTC towers; Two planes for Washington, D.C.
(Pentegon & Capitol or White House?). Seems plausible. I've also heard
rumors through my public safety connections that box cutters were found in
the seat back slots on another plane that never took off due to delays, but
I've not had any confirmation of this in the media so it's probably not

The hostages crashed the plane into the ground?
The theory I have heard is that the suicide hijackers crashed the plane once
they realised their original mission wouldn't succeed.
I understand that, from the phone conversations, the intent of the
passengers was to retake the aircraft after the pilots had been murdered.
Not sure if there were any experienced pilots amongst the passengers. But
in that same predicament, I would have tried like hell to land the plane
instead of deliberately crashing it into a field. If the radio was still
working it is possible that a non-pilot could have been talked through the
procedure of landing, with at least a possibility of survival.
Of course, no-one inside that plane is alive to tell the story, so this is
