Lengthy Interview with German Boeing Pilot Regarding 9/11

Gespräch: Airline-Pilot glaubt nicht an offizielle 9/11-Version - gerhard-wisnewski.de

Translation is available here.

Q: ¾ a year before this maneuver the alleged hijacker Atta practiced three hours in a simulator of a Boeing 727....

There are basic differences between a 727 and 757 / 767’s. 757 and 767 were constructed decades later and are designed for 2 instead for three people in the cockpit; the computers in the 757 / 767 replace the flight engineer ( the third person ) which shows the fundamental differences of the instruments. Even the primary flight instruments are of a new generation. The data is shown on screens and not conventional clock-like instruments you have in a 727. Also you have to check to what extend a Boeing 727-simulator (old plane) is equipped with modern visual systems (modern technique) allowing to practice such crashes as we saw on 9/11 (WTC) and visual flight maneuvers in general.

To sum it up: Atta and his allies must have been real cracks to fly such a complex maneuver with so little practice. Also I find it very interesting that all four planes were 757’s or 767’s which all have identical cockpits. This suggests that the hijackers or whoever else found something very useful in these specific airplane models fitting extremely well in their 9/11 plans.

Q: In all four cases the armed hijackers allegedly gained controll over the planes and the cockpits in a flash. So quick that the pilots neither could send a radio message nor acould type an emergency code into transponder. Is this plausible ?

As far as I know there were very strict procedures regulating the cockpit-access. I can not rule out that hijackers can surprise a pilot in perhaps one situation that he can not send an emergency signal...but four times simultaneously? I can not imagine that at all.
Q: What training and practical experience would you assume for a pilot to fly such a maneuver perfectly? According to witness testimonies from the flight schools the hijackers could not even control small Cessnas.

It’s hard for me to answer that; After all previously said things I can say for sure that the 9/11 maneuvers were challenging, even for commercial airline pilots flying these types of aircraft regularly. But I have also already seen non-pilots in the full-flight-simulator that could fly certain maneuvers with surprising precision after long virtual training. Definetely the hijackers would have had to train a lot theoretically (system knowledge) and practically (flight simulator ). When I now hear that they could hardly control a Cessna it’s hard for me to imagine they were in control of the planes on 9/11.
Q: Until today there is no aircraft accident examination report by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) abaout the four airline catastrophes of 9/11. How do you review that ?

Obviously the official [..?] do not want the public to know what really happened. Most questions could certainly be cleared out if the given data would be analyzed and made public. In this connection I would like to remind how wreckages of other accidents at the most inhospitable places have been found and analyzed and provided an answer.

Thanks triklops for the heads up!

Involve Keith Olbermann

I would like to suggest that we make a concerted effort to get Keith Olbermann of Countdown on MSNBC to provide a forum for 9/11 truth. Perhaps if eough people write to him he will consider it. He certainly is anti-Bush and might welcome it. Does anyone think this is a good idea?? I sent the following email to him. His contact information is:
Keith Olbermann

I watch your show and have been pleased see you taking on the Bush administration and their destruction of our rights under the constitution. Unfortunately, no matter how lucid your comments, they will never have the desired effect since most people watching will just sit and nod in agreement.

If we hope to create change and stop this madness there is one sure way - exposing the truth about the events of 9/11. Certainly you are aware of the growing movement of those of us who have serious questions about both what happened that day and who was responsible. You are an intelligent man and I have to believe that you, too, have serious questions. What we need is someone with a large megaphone to present this issue in an unbiased, non-judgmental way. You would be a perfect person to play this role.

It wouldn't be necessary for you to take a public stand - you could just act as a neutral referee. If you could devote a portion of your show for a week to have various people (Dr. David Ray Griffin, Professor Steven Jones, Dr. Kevin Barrett, Nicholas Levis, Kristen Breitweiser) present their ideas and proofs in a neutral environment you could truly be a hero for this generation. With this kind of exposure millions of people would be exposed to this valuable information so that they could make up their own mind about what is true/plausible and what they will do about it.

A further benefit would be the increased likelihood of whistleblowers would be encouraged to come forward. You could even encourage this by suggesting that your show could provide a forum for credible informers to present what they know.

Please consider taking a public stand on this most important issue. Exposing 9/11 truth is the only tool we have left if we hope to salvage our country. Please, please, help.

i contact Olbermann

i contact Olbermann regularly. i suggest everyone else does the same. futile? maybe, but still worth a try.


Here's my letter...sent today! Hope it's okay, input is appreciated.

Dear Mr. Olbermann,

I am writing this letter to you today to ask for your assistance in the 9/11 truth movement. I am tired of being labeled as crazy by the public for questioning what happened on that day. I am a mother, wife, homemaker and school teacher. I have a degree in science from a highly rated liberal arts college. I am neither crazy, nor am I a fanatic. A current MSNBC poll shows that 61% of Americans believe there is some type of government cover-up. After many months of extensive research I have also reached the conclusion that a massive cover-up of 9/11 events has been exposed by the people behind the 9/11 movement. If you go to the scholars for truth web site, you will see a very long and impressive list of people (mainly scientists, engineers, attorneys, government officials and family members of 9/11 victims) who want a new investigation based on their findings. It appears to me that main stream media has chosen not to cover the many important questions we have for fear of losing viewers. I am asking you to please consider some of the crucial facts gathered by the 9/11 truth movement. You do not need to side with us or against us. We are asking you to simply convey facts to the public about the flawed and outlandish assertions by the Bush Administration as to the events of 9/11. I ask you to please have the following people on your show to share with the public the inconsistencies of the 9/11 commission report and the factual evidence they have collected through extensive research: Dr. David Ray Griffin, Professor Steven Jones, Dr. Kevin Barrett, Dr. Jeff King, Dr. James Fetzer, Dr. Judy Wood, Dr. Morgan Reynolds, Col. George Nelson, Col. Robert Bowman, Sibel Edmonds, and Donna Marsh O’Connor. I will leave you with a quote by Mark Twain:
“In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot” - Notebook, 1904

Yet another smoking gun

Curious how all airplane crashes are all studied very intensivley, big official investigations by the FAA except for the ones that happened on 9/11 2001. So what explaination do the shills use for this example?

I said this earlier

olbermann will not do it. We all know that deep down. Olbermann is a democrat. He will do it later, when it becomes an issue to benefit democrats. Nobody will do it now while it is an issue that simply focuses on the constitution. Liberals will get it in a way you think is half way there if they win congressional seats in this ellection. Nobody will get it in the obvious way it should be understood. We get it, and let us keep getting it as we have. We get it as 19th century liberals, as thomas jefferson, or we get it as conservative libertarians in america right now. We all get it. We are all so alike. This is what america is supposed to be and we understand that. We should continue to stand togethere because there is little difference between us, We are thinking americans.

KO is just another type of court jester

like stewart or colbert, maher, etc.

they all know their limits.

it isn't "their" show.

"There's a shadow on the faces of the men who send the guns to the wars that are fought in places where their business interest runs."

Unlawful Enemy Combatants....911Bloggers?

With the upcoming signing of the Terror Tribunal Bill by President Bush, it appears that those in the 9/11 Truth Movement could now legally be deemed "unlawful enemy combatants" and punished accordingly.

As Bush has said in speeches leading up to this, those discussing "conspiracy theories" are interfering with the U.S.'s objectives concerning the War on Terror.

Are there any 911Blogger readers concerned about this turn of events?

Yep, you can all be labeled

Yep, you can all be labeled as terrorists from now on and your CONgress let it happen.


to Germany circa 1933.

One more major hysteria inducing ff-op, and the roundups can begin. Time to prepare resistance.

In Germany, they first came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me and by that time there was no one left to speak up.

--Pastor Martin Niemoeller

If they wanna go there...

they better be ready for a fight.

It's my duty as a citizen to do what I'm doing.

Yes, I urge all of you to research this...

In the opinion of someone whom I respect, who has studied Fascism and it's history, "it's Nazi Germany in 1937" in what's left of America.

Go to PrisonPlanet.com and read Alex Jones's staff's articles on this. Also, his show Friday, which you can stream from that site. dealt extensively with this.

And, go to Informationclearinghouse.info for some articles on this.

Pat Leahy was on DemcracyNow! Friday about this; you can get the show or transcript at their website.

Folks, it's a small step from this to outlawing dissent or ourlawing discussing 9/11 Truth.

This new law is horrifying in it's implications.

What this Administration can do to people they don't like

This is a section of the 87-page bill:

HR 6166

(1) UNLAWFUL ENEMY COMBATANT- (A) The term `unlawful enemy combatant' means--

`(i) a person who has engaged in hostilities or who has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its co-belligerents who is not a lawful enemy combatant (including a person who is part of the Taliban, al Qaeda, or associated forces); or

`(ii) a person who, before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Military Commissions Act of 2006, has been determined to be an unlawful enemy combatant by a Combatant Status Review Tribunal or another competent tribunal established under the authority of the President or the Secretary of Defense.


That means anyone, even Americans can be secretly arrested and indefinitely incarcerated by a secret military tribunal. There goes the Bill of Rights and the Constitution (which, remember, is just a "goddamn piece of paper", in his words....well, I guess he meant it).

Keep in mind all the Bush Administration speeches lately denouncing "conspiracy theories" as helping the enemy.

Americans can be held

Americans can be held indefinately but the tribunals and habeus corpus rules are only applicable to aliens

still these rules are a

still these rules are a piece of crap

war crimes amnesty for Bush.

Report says detainee plan would pardon U.S. officials
CNN: Congressional work on tribunal hearings grants amnesty

World Net Daily | September 30 2006

A video report from CNN's Jack Cafferty says that buried deep within the pending plan to create military tribunals for those suspected of terrorism is amnesty for present U.S. officials.

He said that President Bush "is trying to pardon himself" with the plan, which is in the last stage of congressional endorsement and next will go to the president's desk.

"Here's the deal:" Cafferty said. "Under the War Crimes Act, violations of the Geneva Conventions are felonies, in some cases punishable by death. When the Supreme Court ruled that the Geneva Convention applied to al-Qaida and Taliban detainees, President Bush and his boys were suddenly in big trouble.

"They've been working these prisoners over pretty good. In an effort to avoid possible prosecution they're trying to cram this bill through Congress before the end of the week before Congress adjourns," he said.

"The reason there's such a rush to do this? If the Democrats get control of the House in November this kind of legislation probably wouldn't pass," he said.

Cafferty said the "real disgrace" was that Sen. Bill Frist and U.S. Rep. Dennis Hastert "and their Republican stooges apparently don't see anything wrong with this. I really do wonder sometimes what we're becoming in this country."

also his ability to

also his ability to designate people enemy combatants stems from AUMF (Authorixation of Military force), not this bill. Usually AUMF is external, but since "terrorists" attacked the country its directed internally also. (To my understanding) once the AUMF is repealed (if ever, by the next president?) , detention by the military will not be possible.

Old news

"Q: Until today there is no aircraft accident examination report by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) abaout the four airline catastrophes of 9/11. How do you review that ?"

Easy. Whenever a crime is suspected or involved, the FBI takes over the investigation. The NTSB assisted but is not in charge. This is old news.

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 are under the jurisdiction of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Safety Board provided requested technical assistance to the FBI, and any material generated by the NTSB is under the control of the FBI. The Safety Board does not plan to issue a report or open a public docket.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The Safety Board did not determine the probable cause and does not plan to issue a report or open a public docket. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 are under the jurisdiction of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Safety Board provided requested technical assistance to the FBI, and any material generated by the NTSB is under the control of the FBI.


Other pilots have written extensively about the training and ability of Atta and the other hijackers to fly the 757s and 767s.


I read their "rebuttal" it

I read their "rebuttal" it is a piece of crap which uses insults to make it seem like their line of reasoning is correct

Not a rebuttal

We note that there is no rebuttal to the piece posted above. It is one pilot's opinion against those of every pilot in the world. That is the only reason the post was made, to show one dissenting view to the established fact that Arab hijackers had proper training to fly 757s and 767s once in flight and to the end of destroying towers.

You can easily verify this fact for yourself if you care to.

It is one pilot's opinion..

"It is one pilot's opinion against those of every pilot in the world."

Jesus, you guys aren't even trying anymore. That is one of the stupidest sentences I've ever read here.

Perhaps you could link to the study which comprehensively investigates the opinions of EVERY PILOT IN THE WORLD.

Yes, old news indeed...

Yes, old news indeed...

Sometime ago, I went to the NTSB web site itself and read the legislation in detail that enabled or created the NTSB ... It clearly and unequivocally states that, while the AG may determine that the FBI is the lead agency on a given case, this does not alleviate the NTSB of its responsibility to investigate the matter, hold hearings on it, or publish its findings.

The pertinent wording of this legislation was copied out in detail and posted, if memory serves me correctly, towards the end of pinned 80-page "Volume One" thread which you can find here:


If my memory is not working correctly, you can relatively early find it in "Volume Two".

There used to be a time when laws meant something; apparently this is no longer the case, as we no longer live in a republic run by the rule of law but in a dictatorship, a kingdom of fools and idots run the chief decider who can, on a whim, make any one of us disappea

Your memory does not serve you correctly

Note the fact that the FBI has always been the lead investigator when an aircraft accident has been determined to be the result of criminal activity:

Investigations Involving Criminal Activity

"In cases of suspected criminal activity, other agencies may participate in the investigation. The Safety Board does not investigate criminal activity; in the past, once it has been established that a transportation tragedy is, in fact, a criminal act, the FBI becomes the lead federal investigative body, with the NTSB providing any requested support.

"One example would be the crash of a Pacific Southwest Airlines flight in San Luis Obispo, California on December 7, 1987. All 43 persons aboard died in the crash of the Bae-146. Because of information conveyed over the radio by the flight crew shortly before the crash, the FBI instituted its own investigation, parallel to the Safety Board's investigation, to determine if a crime had been committed. Within days, it was learned that a former employee of the airline had boarded the plane with a gun and, while the plane was in cruise flight, had shot the flight crew, causing the aircraft to crash. When that was made evident, the FBI assumed control of the investigation.

"More recently, on September 11, 2001, the crashes of all four airliners were obviously the result of criminal actions and the Justice Department assumed control of the investigations. The NTSB provided requested technical support."

"As the result of recent legislation, the NTSB will surrender lead status on a transportation accident only if the Attorney General, in consultation with the Chairman of the Safety Board, notifies the Board that circumstances reasonably indicate that the accident may have been caused by an intentional criminal act."

good Q&A, thank you.

Olbermann Is The Best On Major Networks

.......Keith Olbermann is not perfect. He is without a doubt the best thing going on national TV. I hope he does look into 9/11, I'm not holding my breath. Olbermann is keeping his job by a thread.

I do not look to one individual to be the 9/11 hero, it's going to take time and persistence.

exactly. people need to put

exactly. people need to put things into perspective. is Olbermann going far enough in protesting this regimes horrible conduct? no, obviously not. is he going further than anyone else on cable news? yes he is. we should not be dragging him down, we should be prodding him to go further. lets not forget, MSNBC fired their top rated host for speaking out against the Iraq war. their HIGHEST RATED show was cancelled because of the content. we have to be realistic. Olbermann is doing a great service, even without 9/11 truth. hes lucky to still have a job based on how good hes been lately.

the NTSB did release some

the NTSB did release some papers I don't know if at can be called analysis though ...

Olberman pushes the lone

Olberman pushes the lone gunman fairy tale of the JFK assassination. I doubt if he gives credence to any 911 inside job theories. He's really good, but he's not pure gold. Maybe some informed person can sit him down and have a talk with him and enlighten him on a few things. He would become pure gold if he would drop the anti conspiracy theory nonsense. That's what that type of thinking is too - pure nonsense.

Keith is the best out there on MSM right now, but

...He did have that establishment shill Gerald Posner (who wrote that piece of fiction supporting the Warren Commission a few years ago) on awhile back to attack Jimmy Walters with purely ad hominum tactics, and Keith just kind of stood back and did nothing but support Posner's transparent bile....

For all of Olbermann's good work on calling the Bush cabal on their BS (especially exposing the "Terror Alerts" as politically timed), that has always rankled me.

thats right, i have seen him

thats right, i have seen him have that clown Posner on numerous times. i didnt know Olbermann fell for that Oswald shit himself though. thats a bit surprising.

No, I didn't mean that...

...about Keith supporting the JFK lone gunman thing...I was just saying he had Posner on (who had patently whored himself out previously to shore up the lone gunman theory with that book of his), to attack Jimmy Walters after JW had placed those famous newspaper ads asking for proof of the official version.

he pushes the lone gunman

he pushes the lone gunman theory? are you sure? damn thats weak, i didnt know that if its true. but yeah, hes as good as someone on cable news can be i guess. considering he works for G.E. its pretty surprising to hear what hes been saying lately. like i said, even without 9/11 truth, hes been pretty impressive for a MSM talking head lately.
