Yes it is certainly in the realm of posibility those planes were flown via remote and the passengers disposed of.
Not possible, and I will provide the reasons why from my own experience as a pilot and as an airframe supervisor, inspector and technician, in
addition to my long experience modifying Air Force aircraft and Army helicopters.
* The B-767 and B-757 are not fly-by-wire aircraft, which would have required major modifications of their flight control systems and the airlines
were not prepare to ground their aircraft for many months to have them illegally modified to fly under remote control.
* There was no way the government could have acquired B-767-200 and B-757-200 series aircraft that cannot be traced
* There is no way to switch such aircraft and not get caught, and in fact, it would take me less than thirty minutes to reveal a switched aircraft,
which would eventually lead to the people involved.
* Only a certain number of B-757-200 and B-767-200 series aircraft were built and their airframes are easily traceable, which would take me only 5
minutes to trace and identify the last owner.
* Only a certain number of their engines were built and they are easily traceable as well.
* Modifying the B-767 and B-757 would have left a paper trail from Washington State to Washington D.C. and from there, straight to the engine and
There are the purchases of fuel, oil, hydraulic fluids, ground services, support equipment, work stands, special tools and machinery needed to
produce the parts and other hardware needed to modify the aircraft.
* You will need engineering data and tech manuals
* Line replacement items on each aircraft are traceable
* The APU of each aircraft are traceable
* Switching the aircraft in flight will set off the alarm bells of ATC.
* How do you file a flight plan for an aircraft in the colors of another airliner illegally?
* Switching the aircraft at the airport would set off alarm bells for obvious reasons, especially with ATC, the airline whose colors are in use
illegally and whose employees would not doubt, take notice at see the aircraft on the tarmac and from airport officials. Who is going to pay the
landing fee for a bogus aircraft? Definitely not the airline whose colors are being used illegally.
Those are just a few examples of many that highlight the problem of trying to modify those aircraft to fly under remote control.
Such an operation would require far too many people, some of whom might have a bad habit of talking in their sleep in the wrong place.
To sum it up, the FDR data also proves that none of the 9/11 aircraft were flown under remote control.
