Personally I believe the Hijackers must have killed pilots and crashed the planes themselves What can you threaten a man with, if complying means he will die anyway?

A 767 from United Airlines is still missing and unaccounted for, going from (I think) Boston to LA.

American Airlines lost two planes. United Airlines is missing two planes also. United still can't account for one of their planes (a 767 from Boston). So there still might be one out there flying.

I hate to say it, be the pilot(s) were probably killed once the terrorist(s) had the plane(s) where they wanted them. No pilot - crash!

I'm afraid that is only too true
Once you're near the building you want to fly into, hitting it isn't that hard. Still, it may be the pilots. They won't need a gun either. It's all so frustrating...

This picture has nothing to do with the other part of my sig. It's just cool.

Angelofdeath, you're correct. Retaliation WILL make things worse. FOR THEM! As far as not living in the US goes, coalition force works for me!
