Ok, I'm kind of confused. How were helicopters up taking pictures? I thought all aircraft were grounded that day.
This is probably why they were classified.
Some arial photos were taken after the building/s fell, which means nothing should have been in the airspace at that time.
However, for the 30+ minutes from when it turned off it's transponder and turned around, American airspace may as well have been undefended.
We have F16s that can be in the air in 2:30 minutes, around the clock.
They didn't show up until later though.
This means by the time these pictures were taken, only government aircraft should have been in the air.
These photos were most likely taken by the government, and were just released by them.
