American 77 was flown by the hijacker, and impacted into the Pentagon, yes.
It is clear, from the many points of evidence....tho most compelling is, of course, the FDR.
Unfortunately, the CVR was too damaged, did not survive the impact and subsequent fire. Those *recorders* are NOT "indestructible".
The fact that United 93's CVR was intact shows that the aspects of the airliner *crash* details vary.
In the design of CVRs and FDRs, NONE of them were designed to withstand the sort of *crashes* seen by intentional suicidal maniacs, who wished to cause such damage, by SUICIDALLY crashing the jet they were piloting!!
