According to the official theory of the events of 9/11, all passengers of American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the World Trade Center and died upon impact.
Twelve years of research have produced a number of facts to contradict this assertion. Among them are these two courtesy of the original Bureau of Transportation records before they were altered:
American Airlines Flight 11 was never scheduled.
American Airlines Flight 11 never took off.
From these two facts, we can make a necessary inference that no one boarded Flight 11 and took off in it.
We can also infer that people said to have been passengers on Flight 11 were either (a) real people who went somewhere else or (b) were not real people.
Recently, I received an email from a man who claimed he knew a specific person said to be a passenger on Flight 11. He alluded to a source who claimed that he overheard the passenger, whom I will call “11X”, calling a taxi on the morning of September 11, 2001 and then saw board with luggage a taxi shortly thereafter. He claims neither he nor anyone else who knew him has seen 11X again.
In this essay, I will assume the good faith of the claims of the man who emailed me. Let’s say that 11X was in fact a real person who indicated to others he would take a flight from Boston to Los Angeles on that morning and that 11X’s name ended up on a passenger list (whether it was an unofficial list or the manifest is not at issue here).
How does this stipulation fit in with the facts established about the flight?
11X shows up at Boston Logan Airport. He goes to one of the two gates alleged for Flight 11’s departure, Gate 26 or Gate 32. He boards the plane he believes is Flight 11.
What happened there is subject to debate. A writer on the “Let’s Roll Forums” came up with what I believe is the best explanation. Here is the link. My summary follows:
The writer, who goes by the nickname “LoopDLoop,” asserts that the plane was used as a simulation, which would explain phone calls made by flight attendants about hijackings on a flight that never flew. Loop cites an early interview of airport personnel who saw the plane for Flight 11 on the ground quite some time after its alleged 7:59 AM take off.
As for the “passengers,” Loop does not know for sure what became of them but suggests that no one remained on board, but rather, that the people needed for the simulation took the airplane phone with them to another location to conduct the simulation.
What was next for 11X?
He could have left the airport at this point, but as we know he did not return home again, this scenario seems unlikely. It would leave him without any purpose.
If he intended to go to Los Angeles, he would have looked for another flight out there. If he expected that Flight 11 would not take off, he would have likely arrived at the airport ready to go to his next place.
In either case, the most likely possibility would have put him at Gate 19 for United Airlines Flight 175.
As I have pointed out in books on this subject, he had time to get from either Gate 32 or Gate 26 to go to Gate 19. I have suggested he (and other passengers) could have been “taxied” to Gate 19. Some say that such a plane would have been noticed. Maybe so. If it were noticed, there is no telling if anyone reporting it would have been believed. Furthermore, the plane would have gone around a corner, possibly losing the interest of onlookers. With a little effort, passengers could make the distance on foot, anyway.
In any case, 11x now boards United 175.
If he had an American Flight 11 ticket, he could have quickly gone to the United Airlines booth and exchanged tickets for the 175 flight. And who is to say what ticket 11x held? With no direct information on this matter, it is possible he was instructed to go to United 175 all along.
United 175 takes off (late, according to some sources). Thanks to ACARS, we know that this flight was over Western Pennsylvania TEN MINUTES after its supposed crash into World Trade Center Two. We also know that an unidentified plane (by flight number) landed in Cleveland some time later, matching the description of the plane for United 175.
This places 11X at the Cleveland Hopkins Airport.
Newspaper articles cite a large group of passengers walking from the area where the unidentified plane landed toward a building managed by NASA. This walk takes place long after the airport has been evacuated!
11X goes into the NASA building.
There are no facts available after this point. His execution or his decision to hide both explain his absence. Those who insist he was murdered could point to his character or his ties to the community but neither prove the point. If he went hiding (as an agent, for example), there may be circumstantial evidence of participation in a plan but not enough evidence to prove that point.
Those who plotted this crime are probably laughing that we cannot untangle the mess they left for us. It is my hope that presenting this essay will spark an idea or uncover a fact to get past this paradox.
Source (unless otherwise identified): Planes without Passengers: the Faked Hijackings of 9/11, 2nd edition by Dean T. Hartwell
A recent reviewer
of my book Planes without Passengers: the Faked Hijackings of 9/11
(2nd edition) wrote that the book needs a third edition. He is right. I write this “edition” to distill the message of the first two editions to just one sentence:
THERE WERE NO HIJACKINGS ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001.
In short, the stories of plane hijackings and the use of the planes by hijackers to strike buildings was a complete hoax. So, too, were stories of distressed passenger calls from planes. The more I researched and debated this matter, furthermore, the more it appeared that, with some exceptions, the alleged passengers were manufactured or used identities.
Background information on the web are these two essays, the first co-written with Jim Fetzer:

Can anyone disprove my hypothesis?
Conspiracy theory is dead.
That’s because it never existed.
Whether things (allegedly) happen, it hardly matters that the action was planned; it matters a lot more as to WHO planned them and WHO carried them out.
Take the competing theories as to what happened on September 11, 2001.
The official theory says that nineteen hijackers and others planned attacks.
Alternate theories say that others planned the attacks.
Still other theories contend that the events were staged with the goal to frame people for committing attacks.
All of these theories could be characterized as conspiracy theories.
So why bother using this phrase?
It is awfully strange that those who disagree with the official theory are the ones given the label of conspiracy theorists.
The one word missing in the shallow analysis often offered about the events is the word “agent.”
According to Dictionary.com, an agent is one who is a person or business authorized to act on another's behalf
We learned through a Fox News headline today that there was “9/11 plane landing gear found in Lower Manhattan.” Getting to the text, the message softens a bit, to “Part of landing gear apparently from one of the jetliners that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, has been found wedged between two buildings.”
Apparently. The article never tells us which plane the landing gear came from, although it quotes the deputy police commissioner of New York City as saying that the gear has a Boeing number identification clearly identified upon it.
What does this have to do with the concept of conspiracy?
We have been persuaded to believe, from this article, and numerous media reports before it, that the only true theory is the official one. The wording “from one of the jetliners that crashed…” gives away this presumption.
We have been persuaded to believe that only conspiracy theorists believe otherwise. By implication, we are to ignore their ideas completely.
We are persuaded to ignore the possibility of agency, in this case the idea that people not privy to the plan could act on behalf of those who made the plan.
With that, the news media which rehashes this “news” will completely ignore what many alternative theorists have said for years: that of the four planes alleged to have been a part of the events of September 11, two of them did not fly and two of them flew well past the time of the alleged attacks on the World Trade Center buildings.
You can believe those who condemn conspiracy theory while secretly supporting one.
Or you can believe those who are willing to present an alternative to a theory that does not work.
I spoke at the Vancouver Hearings on June 15, 2012 about the alleged planes and passengers of 9/11. Click here to see my PowerPoint presentation.
The Vancouver Hearings will present eighteen speakers to challenge the official theory of the events of 9/11 on multiple fronts, including what happened to the planes and passengers, who was behind the attacks and the role of the media. For more information, read here.
Did the Passengers of United 93 Survive the Flight?Consider the following facts:Many of the United 93 passengers were scheduled to be on United 91 but switched within a few days to United 93. The scheduled take-off time for United 93 was only ONE HOUR before United 91. Also, United 93 was making its debut Tuesday flight on September 11, 2001.Why would so many make a switch to a new flight scheduled to leave just one hour earlier? It raises questions as to who the passengers were and who told them about the new flight.
United 91 never took off, anyway.
How Do We Know The United 93 Passengers Actually Boarded the Plane?We have evidence of boarding passes and Bureau of Transportation Statistics records of the flight schedule and take off.How Do We Know That United 93 Did Not Crash in Shanksville? There is no debris traceable to the specific plane that was United 93 that day. We also have an ACARS indication that the flight was near Ft. Wayne, Michigan a few minutes after the “crash” in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.What Conclusion Can Be Drawn as to the Passengers? The plane and its passengers landed safely.
