"The only problem they would have would be with LANDING" and YES anyone that can get a pilots license can become a pilot for an airline, and
that's just about anyone.
"...you are correct, "STEERING" (incorrect term, but we'll use this for sake of discussion) is not hard, if all considerd aspects of steering are
just banking. Moving about 360 degrees on the X-Y plane is easy.
But when you start steering, taking into account the Z-plane (ie; Altitude/Height.. ie; trying to steer as you descend or ascend), steering is no
longer the same (much more difficult). Especially when now you have to take into account, vertical and horizontal velocities, g-forces (at the same
time) and have to adjust trim for both. Most proper and stable flight is conducted at a vertical speed between 0 and +/- 50. And adjusting trim at
these speeds correctly is NOT what a novice can do (most people don't make their wings because they fail this part).
For a plane to come from above at a certain altitude, to descend at a specific rate from it's current position, to make the target is not something
that can be done by "manual" steering (unless he was flying a fighter-jet, mind you commercial airplanes used in WTC are also very slow in
A novice could ONLY possibly hit the target (WTC buildings) if at the moment he hit the buildings he REACHED the altitude (of where it hit) and stayed
there and stabilized his altitude, and then continued to bank left and right until he reached the target.
Clearly from the videos, one of the planes came from ABOVE. So this indicates the pilot reached an altitude far above the WTC height, and brought the
plane down, at the exact altitude and at a very controlled rate of descent as if he was using AP/trim adjustment, because if he didn't (and
controlled it manually), he risked the chance of hitting the ground flat too early or offshooting the target. You have to keep in mind, the world
trade centre is a THIN and SHORT structure relative to capabilities of these particular aircrafts. It's like playing darts and getting a bullseye,
and in this case -- TWICE in a row.
Very few people in my experience can hardly even CRASH on a landing runway with landing gadgets like ILS, let alone land a plane on it properly!
WTC clearly was conducted by professional pilots. Whether it be a conspiracy by the United States or some Middle-Eastern Terrorism plot. The fact is
either way, the guys who flew these planes had elite pilot skills."
starting to see the picture?
Not my words. But a professional pilot's. Me, I have enough trouble with the simulators. Hmm, just like the alleged hijackers did.
