''Out of my peripheral vision, I saw this plane coming in and it was low - and getting lower. ''If you couldn't touch it from standing on the highway, you could by standing on your car.'' ''I thought, 'This isn't really happening. That is a big plane.' Then I saw the faces of some of the passengers on board,'' Cissell said. ''I remember thinking, 'The World Trade Center was just the beginning, there's going to be more.' '' He remembers the helipad the plane flew over before smacking into the Pentagon was close enough to him that ''I could have thrown a baseball at it and hit it.''

so you are saying a military office in charge of school trips to the pentagon memorial doesnt have his facts right? you surprise me dave, I never thought you would be so skeptical of the "official story" maybe you should work that pentagon gig, tell everyone about the dangers of "damn fool truther conspiracy websites"

I "was" not having such a good day until I read this.
It helped perk up my spirits so much, I read it again.
Now I am set for anything else which may come by.
I really do enjoy a good laugh.

Yeah, that story sounds like yet another "something that someone heard that someone else heard" that changed a simple story into something outlandish after so many iterations. It's almost certainly based upon a real eyewitness account (the mention of the sunroof makes it sound vaguely like Penny Elgas' eyewitness testimony) but by the time it got to yoru chaperone it became a whole different story.

Then we discussed why the guard might have told us that story. I kept it out of the realm of conspiracy theories, but frankly if we can get our children to question what they are told and learn to look for the answers themselves, then we have the seeds for revolution,.
You just made the RED LIST bud......so solly bout dat.....

I don't know why the guard gave us this story. Most likely he simply embellished the quote about seeing the plane. However, I don't think the guard told us this story to try and trick us. He seemed quite sincere and very, very young.
