Unexplained Fact #1: The only direct sighting of Flight 11 was by the pilot of Flight 175, ANOTHER PLANE ALLEGEDLY HIJACKED!
Unexplained Fact #2: Flight attendant Amy Sweeney reportedly made phone call to ground manager and said that three passengers had been stabbed. She LATER reported that hijackers were breaking into the cockpit. Yet the pilots, who presumably would have heard the commotion of the stabbings, never took a few seconds to enter the emergency code!
Unexplained Fact #3: Lt. Colonel Dawne Deskins of the Air National Guard says that the Federal Aviation Administration told her that they "showed American Airlines Flight 11 was still airborne" after the strike on the World Trade Center north tower.
