Which would mean the E-4B takes off at just about the same time the Pentagon is struck, perhaps a minute or so beforehand. But where does it take off from ? I can't find that anywhere. I'm not a US person and am unfamiliar with air force bases around DC. Where's the most likely place around DC to keep planes such as the E-4B ? And what would the flying time be from that base to DC itself ?
Shortly Before 9:37 a.m.) September 11, 2001: Airborne Command Post Launched from Near Washington An E-4B National Airborne Operations Center (NAOC) takes off from an unspecified airfield outside of Washington, DC. The aircraft, which is carrying civilian and military officials, is launched in order to participate in a pre-scheduled military exercise.

If there is an "Official" time of take off for this plane, I would think that it is inaccurate and perhaps an attempt at misdirection since it does not match up with what was being reported that day.

Thanks for that link,
That offers a fascinating look into the world of air traffic control. There are indeed two aircraft that are recorded taking off from Andrews AFB. The first craft around 9:32 and the second as you maintain at about 9:44. The main problem I have now with Identifying that second air craft with the mysterious White Jet(E4B) is that if you follow the flight path on the radar, it does not make a circle over Washington as eyewitness testimony suggests. The only plane that does clearly make a circle is the the one labeled AA77.
Also interesting is how the flight labeled AA77 and the first flight that takes off from Andrews practically converge at one point. I don't know what to make of that.
There is also another "big problem" I just noticed with that radar video. At about exactly 9:36 the controller says I've got another plane 6 miles east of the white house. And then he says it again. But on the radar there is no plane showing up 6 miles east of the white house. That's very peculiar. What does this mean???? Where is this plane he's talking about????
