On July 15th, 2004, passengers aboard a commercial American Airlines flight were able to send and receive calls from their cell phones as if they were on the ground, thanks to a cell station that was installed into the plane.
"It worked great, I called the office. I called my wife. I called a friend in Paris. They all heard me great, and I could hear them loud and clear."
Why would American Airlines spend thousands of dollars on this technology in 2004 when cell phones worked so well on September 11th, 2001?
The cell phone calls were fake. No question about it.
