Ok well 6 miles SW of the white house would put it about 3 miles from the Pentagon.
At 535 mph that means the plane would have hit the white house in about 7 seconds.
Scoggins reported that at 9:35:41
So that's a contradiction.
You're assuming that Scoggins is watching the radar screen as he's talking to NEADS. It's pretty clear from the audiotapes that Scoggins is
relaying information from someone else at Boston Center.
He called to report an aircraft 6 miles southwest of the White House. The call started at 9:35:41, he was told where the aircraft was and then called
Off to Google Earth I go.
At 9:35:41 Flight 77 is 11 miles from the White House(long line).
From the White House, I went to a point 6 miles southwest and drew a line.
Flight 77 with 6 miles southwest of the White House at 9:34:13.
He said that the aircraft was deviating away from the White House. It's pretty obvious that he was reporting the aircraft as it started the right
hand turn toward the south and not as it was ending its turn before lining up with the Pentagon.
