My guess on what happened to the real flight 77 is they crashed it into the Atlantic Ocean.

The Tomahawk Cruise missile, which is a long range ballistic missile, is the most commonly used missile in long range strikes against enemy encampments.
Below, you will see a link to a page. It is very possible to mistake one of these babys for a plane, especially if it's streaking past you at 500MpH.
And when most people think 'Missile', they think something that looks like a sidewinder. Small, with underpronounced fins. Not easy to mistake for a Plane.
But, for crying out loud, the Cruise has WINGS! I'm sure that people who were distracted at the time, and later told it was a plane are likely to say, "hey, that was a plane."

I would have to say it was at least a large passenger jet.
This is a story about a little white lie that bred dozens of other little white lies, then hundreds of bigger white lies and so on, to the point where the first little white lie must be credited as the Mother of All Lies about events on 11 September 2001. For this was the little white lie that first activated the American psyche, generated mass loathing, and enabled media manipulation of the global population.
Without this little white lie there would have been no Arab Hijackers, no Osama Bin Laden directing operations from afar, and no War on Terror in Afghanistan and occupied Palestine. Clearly the lie was so clever and diabolical in nature, it must have been generated by the Power Elite in one of its more earthly manifestations. Perhaps it was the work of the Council on Foreign Relations, or the Trilateral Commission?
No, it was not. Though at the time the little white lie was flagged with a powerful political name, there was and remains no evidence to support the connection. Just like the corrupt and premature Lee Harvey Oswald story in 1963, there are verifiable fatal errors which ultimately prove the little white lie was solely the work of members of the media. Only they had access, and only they had the methods and means.
The little white lie was about Barbara Olson, a conservative commentator for CNN and wife of US Solicitor General Ted Olson. Now deceased, Mrs Olson is alleged to have twice called her husband from an American Airlines Flight 77 seat-telephone, before the aircraft slammed into the Pentagon. This unsubstantiated claim, reported by CNN remarkably quickly at 2.06 am EDT [0606 GMT] on September 12, was the solitary foundation on which the spurious Hijacker story was built.
Without the eminent Barbara Olson and her alleged emotional telephone calls, there would never be any proof that humans played a role in the hijack and destruction of the four aircraft that day. Lookalike claims surfaced several days later on September 16 about passenger Todd Beamer and others, but it is critically important to remember here that the Barbara Olson story was the only one on September 11 and. 12. It was beyond question the artificial seed that started the media snowball rolling down the hill.
And once the snowball started rolling down the hill, it artfully picked up Osama Bin Laden and a host of other terrorists on the way. By noon on September 12, every paid glassy-eyed media commentator in America was either spilling his guts about those Terrible Muslim hijackers, or liberating hitherto classified information about Osama Bin Laden. Oh sure, it was Bin Laden, they said blithely, oblivious to anything apart from their television appearance fees.more
