Towards the end of the transmission, you hear a lady you hadn't heard up to that point, and the first thing she says, is "do you see any activity on your ride side, like smoke..." Who is this lady? How would she know to consider asking that question? Though she knew the answer was yes, because a pilot responds shortly after, confirming black smoke. Is this proof that the Air Force shot it down?
1. Why would the terrorist announce that they had a bomb, twice?
- to me it seems as if the terrorist heard the FAA operator, questioning what he had said, and so the terrorist repeated himself, but why would he feel the need to repeat himself.

Another question to raise here is why some FAA transmission tapes were ordered destroyed. I remember hearing about someone cutting them up and putting them in the trash. I'm not positive on the location but it may have been Logan (boston).
