Also, extra blips were added to the radars to further the confusion.
This doesn't sound right, isn't mentioned anywhere except on fringe "conspiracy" sites. Care to cite a valid source for this claim?
There never was a Flight 11, 77, 93, or 175...
This is demonstrably false, and easily proven to be incorrect.
Check out a website: www.bts.gov...
... the government bribed (and/or threatened) the airlines to go along with their story.
Cite the source. Otherwise, it is a baseless, vile and a very mean-spirited lie. It demeans, and insults, the memories of the vicitims.
All of the crashes were faked with special effects.
The extra planes were accounted for by the extra blips on the radar; so they were essentially ghost planes.
Completely, utterly wrong. It has no basis in fact, nor in available technology. UNLESS you can find a verifiable source to support it, it is yet
just another lie promoted by many "conspiracy" sites that abound.
The 2 World Trade Center crashes were carried out by remotely controlled military planes (neither of the planes had any sort of commercial
airline identifying marks).
Well...again...totally off base, and lacking any basis in fact.
The WTC building 2 was hit by only ONE airplane, a United Airlines Boeing 767-222/ER, FAA registration N612UA, operated as flight 175 on a regularly
scheduled passenger flight from KBOS to KLAX.
Here is a photo of UAL 175:
It depicts a typical paint scheme for United Airlines. What might cause some confusion is, UAL has a history of chanign paint scheme designs quite
frequently, so at any given time you will see their fleet in "transition", as airplanes are re-painted painted gradually.
Here is another United B-767, in same paint scheme as UAL 175 was:
It is from a more oblique angle, but you can always watch the great number of videos from that day, to compare.
You can also research MORE varying paint schemes, for further information, here: www.airliners.net...
Enter the desired search parameters. Those photos are all copyrighted, so I don't embed them here, although they can, of course, be linked.

Regarding the airlines, I'm not sure how they were silenced, but they obviously had to have been since none of those flights were scheduled to fly
Once again, for your own eyes to ponder, the link to prove that, indeed...the flights WERE scheduled that day...and the day before, and the day before
Navigation on the site should be inuitive. Look at 'Statistics', and just fill in the selections desired.
Note about United 93, however. United Airlines instituted a schedule change in early September, 2001 (I think it occured on the 5th). SO, UAL 93,
from KEWR - KSFO will not come up before that date. However, it DID operate every day since the change, to include the 11th September.
Oh, and BTW -- that's twice, I've posted a source...same source, granted. BUT, my other points apply, and are shown. I happen to know a little
something or other, about ATC radar...so burden falls to you to show the proof of the claims made.
(Hint for your research: The actual ATC radar scopes are NOT the same as the ones they use for training...the ones that CAN display 'fake'
returns...) And, there wouldn't be 'fake' returns during live traffic handling operations, for safety reasons.
