Just show me something that says 270 people saw it fall out of the sky and they were not asked to provide any kind of statement, or videotaped testimony and I will stop pestering you on this.

By the definition of the word conspiracy, there is one.
Streak of light was when the plane was heading upwards.
Thanks for your post JCIS. You mentioned "controls" plural. There is only one power control unit.
The reason I mention that is because it is very unlikely that if a yaw damper problem actually occurred that it would only manifest itself every 2 or 3 years.
Knowledgeable people don't refer to directional excursions as "yawing heavily". The are called "hardovers".

The Navy has some excellent practice in covering up their accidents and help from the very top. Does the name Richard Clarke ring a bell? Or maybe Sandy Berger?
Here's a story by Jack Cashill:
What prompts this column is an email I received last week from a retired USNR Commander and former TWA pilot, with whom I had had no prior contact.
He recounted a conversation that he had shortly after the mid-air destruction of TWA Flight 800 on July 17, 1996 off the coast of Long Island. He had a particular interest in the plane’s demise for two reasons. One is that he was a qualified accident investigator. The second is that he had flown that very same flight a week earlier.
"It had to be a bloody missile, probably an un-armed Tomahawk, going for center-of-mass,” he said to a senior flight manager of his acquaintance. “They were most likely going for a target drone and testing their capability to go-through normal aircraft traffic to get at the target.”
This part refers to James Sanders being jailed for using a portion of a seat cover to prove it was missile that went through First Class.
My partner in this investigation, James Sanders, had developed any number of discreet first hand sources in 1996-1997, but all of these sources “went away after we were indicted.” The “we” refers to James and his wife, Elizabeth, at the time a TWA trainer, both of whom were eventually convicted of the bogus charge of conspiracy to steal airplane parts.
Now you want to know what weapon? What Ship? You might as well ask the Navy for information on its new Fleet 21 fully-automated battleship or 70 foot nuclear-powered Fast Attack Sub.
One of the crewmembers on the Navy ship that fired the missile called his father and said, "Dad, we did it." A full account of this in Sander's book.
I have been told that every single crew member was shipped to different stations around the world.
This would probably be normal Navy procedure to keep anyone from discussing the matter.
If any crew members were caught discussing the incident for any reason I would imagine they would commit suicide with 2 bullets in the back of their head.
Fact-767's and 757's were both with built in remote controlled systems and could be flown without a pilot. LOOK IT UP!
Fact-It takes many hours of training and knowledge of the instrument panels, emergency moves, and be able to fly by sight.

Based on my 19,000 hours of flying over 40 years in over a hundred different aircraft including 1, 2, 3 and 4 engine jet and most of it as a command pilot or instructing another pilot and having instructed both in Cessna 172s and other light airplanes and knowing what it takes to fly an airplane through the sky at 500 mph and hit a 208 foot target with an airplane with the wingspan of 156 feet I find many of the comments on this thread remarkably if not totally ignorant about flying a Boeing 757 sized aircraft with little or no experience in that type aircraft.
If there were hijackers on those airplanes that allegedly hit the WTC the hijackers themselves were not flying the airplane. There is no way, as some have said on this thread, that once in the air they could have hit the building. There is no way, none, zero that that could happen. Much less twice.
Its a fantasy. Its a hoax. Its a PsyOp. No arab hijackers could have possibly flown those airplanes into the World Trade Center towers, towers that are 208 feet wide at 500 mph.
But your posts are appreciated even if they irritate the aeronautically informed.
