Let's start in 2002:
Three-minute discrepancy in tape
Cockpit voice recording ends before
Flight 93's official time of impact
THE FINAL three minutes of
hijacked United Flight 93 are still a mystery more than a year after it crashed in western Pennsylvania - even
to grieving relatives who sought comfort in listening to its cockpit tapes in April.
A Daily News
investigation has found a roughly three-minute gap between the time the tape goes silent - according to
government-prepared transcripts - and the time that top scientists have pinpointed for the crash.
Several leading seismologists agree that Flight 93 crashed last Sept. 11 at 10:06:05 a.m., give or take a
couple of seconds. Family members allowed to hear the cockpit voice recorder in Princeton, N.J., last spring
were told it stopped just after 10:03.
The FBI and other agencies refused repeated requests to explain
But the relatives of Flight 93 passengers who heard the cockpit tape April 18 at a
Princeton hotel said government officials laid out a timetable for the crash in a briefing and in a transcript
that accompanied the recording. Relatives later reported they heard sounds of an on-board struggle beginning
at 9:58 a.m., but there was a final "rushing sound" at 10:03, and the tape fell silent.
the uncle of passenger Mark Bingham, said by phone from California that near the end there are shouts of "pull
up, pull up," but the end of the tape "is inferred - there's no impact." [Philadelphia Daily News, 9/16/2002]
Okay, so the above article states that seismologists agreed that Flight 93 crashed at 10:06 a.m., the last
three minutes of the cockpit tape were missing, there is a mention of a struggle, but no mention of maniacal
hijackers, and the tape ended with a "rushing sound".
Let's move on to 2004:
|The passengers continued with their assault, trying to break through the cockpit door. At 10:02 a.m. and
23 seconds, a hijacker said, "Pull it down! Pull it down!"|
"The hijackers remained at the controls but
must have judged that the passengers were only seconds from overcoming them," the report concludes.
"The airplane headed down; the control wheel was turned hard to the right. The airplane rolled onto its back,
and one of the hijackers began shouting, 'Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest.'
sounds of the passenger counter-attack continuing, the aircraft plowed into an empty field in Shanksville,
Pennsylvania, at 580 miles per hour, about 20 minutes' flying time from Washington, D.C." [CNN, 7/23/2004]
The story has completely changed. The 10:06 a.m. seismic event has completely disappeared and we are told
that maniacal hijackers on the verge of being overwhelmed by passengers counter attacking whilst the plane was
flying upside down flew the plane into the ground at 10:03 a.m. with one of them shouting "Allah is the
greatest. Allah is the greatest."
Now let's move on to 2006:
|Three minutes after 10 a.m., passengers seem to be breaking through the cockpit door, fighting with the
hijackers in a futile effort to take back the throttle. "Go! Go!" they encourage one another. "Move! Move!"
But the terrorists have flipped the plane upside down. They spin it downward.|
"Shall we finish it off?"
a hijacker asks in Arabic.
In its final plunge, the hijackers shout over and over in Arabic: "Allah is
the greatest! Allah is the greatest!" [SFGate, 4/13/2006]
Now ALL of the hijackers are shouting "Allah is the greatest! Allah is the greatest!"
Why do I get
the feeling that the last minutes of Flight 93's CVR are fabricated?
