The Pennsylvania state police said debris from the crash has shown up about 8 miles away in a residential area where local media quoted some residents as seeing flaming debris from the sky.
Finding the flight data recorder had been the focus of investigators as they widened their search area today following the discoveries of more debris, including what appeared to be human remains, miles from the point of impact at a reclaimed coal mine.
There doesn't have to be any wreckage.
The unit at Langley keeps two F-16s on “alert”—armed, fueled, and ready to take off within minutes if called upon.

Those statements IMO are far from out of the blue. I have been following that guys blog for years. He is constantly getting hacked by what he claims is the NSA and he recently had to change websites due to the hacking. That to me indicates he is posting information that is not supposed to be seen by the public.
Theory 3 - It was shot off or blown off by a bomb. This jives best with the eyewitness accounts above in my mind. Remember the widely reported cell caller that said he heard an explosion and saw white smoke coming from the plane prior to the crash. In apparent confirmation, we have a number of ground witnesses reporting hearing a series of explosions. Also, we have ground witnesses that saw debris falling from the sky miles from the crash site within moments of the crash. Check the eyewitness page over. These things did not happen at the Pentagon or the WTC. Would the explosions have been heard if Flight 93 overstressed?
I'm just saying it's a big leap to say those pilots had the weapons and the athority to shoot down a passenger air liner before said planes hit their targets.
I believe this is about as close to the truth about the 9/11 flights as it gets.

The aircraft was coming apart, but not because it was shot down. If you look at the maneuvers the pilot was making, he was going in a rolling motion side to side. Aircraft aren't designed for lateral stress the way they ate for vertical stress. If you "Dutch Roll"like he was, you put enormous stress on the engine pylons, and they're going to fail. It happened to a KC-135 in Desert Storm. They ended up with two engines falling off, and the other two pylons heavily damaged.
