FAA, Andrews AFB (ADW) Tower flight progress strips:
There are two strips for SWORD31; why, I have no clue.

FAA September 12, 2008 Release
Discussion on ATS of the old (September 2007) FOIA requested 84 RADES radar data by John Farmer:
These following links are a lot of new (August 2008), highly interesting
files received in response to the pending Federal Court Complaint on
September 12, 2008.
Published and FOIA requested by John Farmer who did an excellent job in archiving them on his site:
TYSON mp3 recording of FAA air traffic controller voice communication with GOPHER06, SWORD31 and BOBCAT14+17 and a few more:
Radar screen capture from DCA TRACON for F77, C-130 (GOPHER06), BOBCAT14+17 (2 fighters in the air), SWORD31 (E-4B Doomsday plane) for a period of
about half an hour starting before flight 77 impacted, and the time after impact:
I will try to draw differently colored points on an overlay of that big screen, depicting flight paths for UAL77, GOPHER06, BOBCAT14+17 and SWORD31,
since it looks to me as if GOPHER06 made a turn "up" to the north, when ordered to follow flight 77, and flew a bit different flightpath than is
laid out by several posters.
I am not sure yet, we will see if I can make such a screen shot from this DCA TRACON screen with all these flight paths in it. I will use the Windows
Screen Magnifier function to try to obtain a fine enough pattern for each plane.
BOBCAT14 disappears from the screen at UTC 12:37:19 after he got redirected to Washington Central (listen to the mp3), and ordered to change frequency
and/or transponder setting to 284.7 . He probably changed his transponder setting and that's why he disappeared from the DCA TRACON radar screen.
BOBCAT17 however, was all the remaining time visible on the DCA TRACON screen, even after he was ordered to change frequency or transponder setting to
the same 284.7 setting, much later.
I suppose Washington Central in the mp3 is a military air traffic controller.
Both fighters seemed to be reasonably close to flight 77, and with afterburners on, could perhaps have intercepted it.
Why did it seem that the flight controller was not aware of the immediate danger of flight 77, flying low and without transponder signal on?
We know of the story of Cheney, getting informed of the plane being 20 miles out, 10 miles out, 5 miles out, and then he told an aid that ""the
orders still stood"", and ""why should they have changed""; he asked that aid.
So why were the FAA controllers not immediately informed, when the Secret Service was aware minutes in advance, that flight 77 was on course to
It seems that Washington Central (military?) was the controller for these two BOBCAT fighters already in the air, very near to Flight 77, and took
over control of one of them, nr 14, about 18 seconds before flight 77 impacted.
And SWORD31 (E-4B, Doomsday plane) was also very near to flight 77, at the same moment in time.
After that, it flew away northwest and it seemed like BOBCAT14 started to make a slow turn in the same direction, before it disappeared from the DCA
TRACON radar screen.
But I remember to have seen a sped-up version of the RADES data, where you saw these two fighters together making a very long loop to the right of the
screen, all around Arlington Village and further south and back up to the Pentagon over Reagan International.
I suppose that RADES sped-up fast video was based on original multiple radar sources, not only DCA TRACON data. Perhaps the maker of that sped-up
version did not see that only one blip was left on most of the loop?
This is a 29 PDF-pages description of the E-4B Doomsday plane (SWORD31) with photographs which undoubtedly prove that is was flying low over the White
House shortly after the Pentagon was hit:
The photo was shot, straight up, beside the old Executive Office Building, located immediately next to the White House, and is the ultimate proof that
the E-4B was flying at low altitude in P56 restricted airspace (page 7 of 29).
JREF'er member Mangoose his roughly composed Tribby video and Looney photos trigonometry regarding positions of the two camera's:
See the big version in this JREF thread:
I am gonna compare the Tribby video with some landmarks visible beside the road (395) and further away, just before and after Tribby passed the white
building with the two white cubes on top, which CIT used to pinpoint the exact place of the C-130, that at that spot just became visible in the
non-enhanced version of the Tribby video.
I will need a high-res version of a Pentagon Google Earth map, with more details provided than the map by CIT.
I think I still have a very high resolution satellite map of the area, thus I can see the bushes and other landmarks much better than in the CIT
I get the feeling, that the two green bushes left and right of the whitish concrete in my own screen shot of that moment in the Tribby video (see one
of my former posts) could be indicating another, next underpass. In that case the line drawn from the camera center through these two white cubes
would end exactly at the knick in the green radar tracks line on the RADES track (the factual radar dot on the radar screen when the dish made one
full 360° turn again).
Wait some time until I compose these screen shots, and we will see who is right, JREF or CIT (if you base your arguments on non-falsified RADES
The flight paths from the E-4B and the two fighters, BOBCAT14 and 17, are very peculiar, regarding the very tense situation at hand.
Why were the two fighters not send directly on an intercept course to flight 77, when the E-4B clearly was the communicating source where Cheney
Why did the E-4B distinctively flew away on an 11000 foot high course to the northwest, followed seemingly by at least one fighter jet, BOBCAT14, and
did not stay in the Washington airspace?
This behavior seems to implicate that the E-4B and the fighter were send directly heading to the next thread, flight 93.
Why not wait in a holding pattern above central Washington, and send only the fighter?
I know from an insider at those types of planes, that at that altitude, they could for instance see Russian jet fighters take off from Moscow
airfields, when they were flying along the, then still existing Iron Fence in East Germany, 1000 km away from Moscow.
Thus, why the need to direct SWORD31, the Doomsday plane, to the Northwest, head on to flight 93?
The E-4B was much more needed above Washington, one would expect when we believe in a total unawareness of all military brass.
But not when this plane was essential in disrupting flight electronics in the hijacked airplanes.....They are very well equipped for that, says my
In fact it is their main defense system when they have no tight defense shield of fighter jets near them. They can crash an attacking fighter jet by
totally disrupting its flight-control electronics.
They can also take over flight controls.....
