There were many mock hijacking drills on 9/11.
I can just imagine the "above top secret" exersices that you cant find on Google.
Your first 'quote' refers to a 'mock drill' planned for 2002...that is 'Amalgam Virgo 2002, using a Delta airliner...which, as you know, was not
involved in any way with Sept 11, 2001. BTW, the 'plan' was to 'hijack' a DL airplane out of SLC (a Delta hub) to Elmendorf, in Alaska...a
MILITARY airbase....get it yet?? Most major airlines fly MILITARY charters....there would not be a normally scheduled 'live' flight from SLC to
Elmendorf, unless it was a Charter...and then everyone would be in on it, because they would KNOW it was a drill.
It's like the 'mock disaster' drills that are staged at various airports around the World. They know, in advance, when the drill will be
staged...just like WE know when we go in to re-current training every year, and have to 'touch' a fire extingisher, and 'get into' a raft (one on
the floor in the classroom), but we must 'erect the rain tent'....and find the 'survival kits', which include the 'shark repellent' and the
'green sea dye' so that SAR can find us...assuming we go down in daylight, when most US airlines are dispatched in the evening, over the North
Every other year we actually have to 'use' the fire extinguisher...they prep a 'water' extinguisher, with a controlled fire....
Oh, and we have to put on the 'fake' 'breathing hood'....I forget what it is called, there's an acronym....but it's this giant hood, with a
self-contained O2 supply, that we are told will last at least 20 minutes....we are supposed to put this ridiculous thing on, and THEN go fight the
fire...if there is a fire....
Here's what you are suposed to do...and, this is an FAA mandated piece of equipment, one in the cockpit, one in the cabin...
Pull it out of its container....place both hands on either side of the neck seal, stretch it out, then pull it over your head. Now, when you have
this stupid thing on your head, you fumble for the two pull-rings to start the flow of Oxygen...OH! I forgot! You have to pull some lanyards to seal
your neck from the alleged fumes...then the O2 generators start to provide O2. Problem is, these generators produce a lot of heat in the
process...and only last for about 20 minutes, tops....
[[same as you have in the PSU (ceilings) of all modern jets) These are provided for you, the passengers, as supplemental O2 in case of a sudden
decompression. The Pilots have special Oxygen masks, quick-donning...can be on in two seconds...and provide 100% pure Oxygen....from a tankd...so
except for a slight ear-ache or tooth-ache, the pilots will be in control, in this scenario...something that really NEVER happens anyway!!! We jsut
train for it, many times...so we know what to do....]]
to keep you from suffocating as you 'fight the fire'....yeah, right! I am going to spend two or three minutes trying to put on this stupid hood,
when all I have to do is grab the CO extinguisher....a fire, on an airplane, is worse than a fire on a boat....any sailor will attest to that.
Once again, I provide too much information....and lose sight of the thread....
OK, at the first part, I mentioned one aspect of the OPs premise being 'planned' in 2002....I forgot to mention, in case anyone does or does not
know, a 'Navy C-9' is the equivalent of a domestic DC-9 jetliner....not anything that had anything to do with 9/11.
THEN, there is a link to a 'mock' shoot-down of an airliner over the North Atlantic....again, HOW does this relate to AA11, UA175, AA77 or UA93??
All four of these flights were Westbound, transcons.
From the East Coast of the US...Westbound. NONE of them wereTransAtlantic.
Some history....at MY airline, we mostly went Eastbound, TransAtlantic, in the evening. This means, the airplane arrived in the morning, local time,
in Europe. As crewmembers, we could fly one leg at a time, then required a rest period. SO, we would leave the East Coast of the US in the evening,
arrive at destination the early morning (their time) and not leave until the NEXT morning (their time).
So, most US carriers left European cities at various times, in the AM, for an early PM arrival in the Eastern USA..,(remember the concept of
Point is....unless you want to believe that both American Airlines and United Airlines were involved, two flights each (one that crashed in
Pennsylvania, or in other words, didn't reach" target") and BOTH companies were complicit in some sort of cover-up...AND, all of the employees, to
include, but not limited to, the Gate Agents, the Mechanics, the Push-Back crew....Individuals at SOCC (dispatch), all of their loved-ones, and
friends, and acquaintances....AND the deceased!!!!!!!, and their families....
IF you think ALL OF THESE people are part of a conspiracy to deceive, then I have no idea what planet you are currently living on, because it's not
If you DO NOT work, or never HAVE WORKED for an airline, then you have no business tring to understand what working for an airline entails.
