9/11 Blogger Features Prominently on CNN

As Chris notes below, the CNN white plane story has mysteriously re-appeared on the CNN Videos page. For those who may be visiting 911blogger for the first time, here is Shoestring's blog entry, and a link to Shoestring's offsite blog. For more detail on this story, see the PDF article, "Why Did the World's Most Advanced Electronics Warfare Plane Circle Over The White House on 9/11?" by Mark H. Gaffney, at the Journal of 9/11 Studies. -rep


CNN did a rare story about 9/11 mysteries. This one focused on the white plane which was widely seen circling the nation's capital on 9/11/01, yet was not widely reported upon in the news.

Why is CNN covering this story? Why now? What is behind this sudden interest in a plane that did not even merit inclusion in the so-called "official report" on the events of 9/11.

9/11: Mystery Plane

9/11: Mystery Plane

9/12/07 CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. Anderson Cooper & John King reports on mysterious white plane over Washington D.C. on 9/11/01.

So, they could get an E4B aloft and circling D.C.,

but they couldn't scramble any fighters to intercept the "hijacked" airliners for 100 minutes?

Now, just exactly what were all those military exercises going on that day?

Nothing to see here, folks, move along....

(Love the plug for blogger, when was this broadcast? 9/12/07? Ah, another anniversary piece...hey CNN, there's a year's worth of stories on 9/11! Do your job, already!)

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

The really damning part

So a civilian air traffic controller sent up a C-130 to intercept an incoming plane spotted on radar while NORAD didn't send anything from this very same Andrews Air Force Base?

Lee Hamilton: "When you're conducting a major investigation, there are thousands of things that come at you, you cannot possibly sort through them all"

I'm sorry Mr. Hamilton but as co-chair of the commission I thought that that was YOUR JOB!

C.H.A.N.G.E. confronts Lee Hamilton

Cincinnati, Columbus and even Seattle members of 911 Truth and We Are Change attended a Speech given by Lee Hamilton at Miami University in Hamilton, Ohio. Lee Hamilton is the former Vice Chairman of the 9/11 Commission. After the speech a few members of the audience were allowed to ask brief questions.

"...look, when you're investigating an incident as complicated as 9/11 and you have literally thousands of people trying to contribute to your knowledge, you don't make every call correct. And we included a lot of things that we thought were right. I believe we have basically told the story of 9/11, as we were charged to do by the statute, in a matter which has been widely-- not unanimously-- accepted. But there are questions that linger, and will linger. We're still investigating Abraham Lincoln's assassination. And we'll be investigating the 9/11 Commission, I have no doubt at all, and our first draft of history many many years hence. We may not have gotten everything right, I think we got a lot of it right." (Lee Hamilton nov 14 2007

Hamilton: "American Military not involved in building collapse"

Could be just true. But what about Israeli secret service?
S. ("pull it") had connections to Israel, like the owner of the trade center shopping mall.

we know why

>>>>.Why is CNN covering this story? Why now? What is behind this sudden interest in a plane that did not even merit inclusion in the so-called "official report" on the events of 9/11.

Because they are feeling the heat and they are stepping up the damage control.

The plane that flew tree-top level over Arlington timed perfectly with the explosion was ALSO white so it would be blended with accounts of this "mystery plane" after the fact.

This way if anyone saw it fly over the building they could simply say it was a "2nd plane".

We will be untangling this web of deception once and for all with our next short but the last one we released is important to watch first because it shows you witnesses describing THE plane as being white.

"Flight 77" The White Plane


Agreed. They are trying to

Agreed. They are trying to introduce the idea of the command plane being the area now so that it confuses the entire day further, while also letting out the story of the command plane so that it appears as if were never hidden in the first place. i.e. "Oh yeah the command plane flying over the capitol, that was completely normal. It was reported on by CNN. Move along folks, nothing to pay attention to here." At least that is how I imagine it. By not including the plane in the 911 Commission report, their distraction tactic is weak. I take this as an indicator of their panic.

Wonder if the white plane in this vid is the same one over D.C.?

Or something similar possibly.

24 seconds in, the white plane enters from the left side and flies past the WTC...


What's CNN's excuse for this plane? Think they should investigate it AND offer an explanation for the beam of light seen painted on the tower just before AND after the plane impacts the exact location of where the beam of light is seen on the tower (after the impact, it can be seen moving across 1 Liberty Plaza (or the building next to it), so it wasn't a reflection of the plane, and I don't believe it's paper/debris based on it's size and movement) .


Anyone have a link to a higher quality version of this video clip? I think Jennifer Spell is the name of the person who shot it.

The other plane

Isn't the plane just a normal passenger plane flying over the adjoining Hudson river? I've read that there was a flight route over there, not so far from the towers.

Hi Vesa

I haven't read anything proving that the white plane was a "normal" passenger plane. However, I have read an article posted on journalof911studies.com titled The Flying Elephant: Evidence for Involvement of a Third Jet in the WTC Attacks (June 2006). The author makes a convincing case that the white plane seen circling the WTC wasn't a "normal" passenger plane. Here are a few excerpts from it....

(FYI the video links no longer work)

"No mention of a large, commercial-class aircraft loitering in the restricted airspace of lower Manhattan during the strikes on the WTC towers will be found in the 9/11 Commission Report. It does not appear in any version of the Official Story. It is largely unknown even in critical studies of 9/11. Yet substantial evidence exists to support its presence coincident with the attacks, actually orbiting in close proximity to the towers for several minutes while the North Tower burned and the South Tower was struck. Photography, video footage and eyewitness accounts, including FDNY transcripts and mainstream media audio, confirm this fact.

Why is this significant? Let us consider the commercial air traffic on a typical Tuesday morning over New York City. There are three major airports servicing the city: La Guardia and JFK International to the east, and Newark International across the Hudson to the west. Normal holding patterns for these airports do not intersect the borough of Manhattan at any point. Lower Manhattan is, and was on the morning of 9/11/01, a low-altitude flight-restricted (no fly) zone for commercial jets, as designated by the FAA, for the obvious reason that heavy, fast-moving aircraft and tall buildings pose mutual hazards. Air traffic near the WTC towers was doubly restricted, with a minimum ceiling extending two thousand feet above the towers (3,300 feet) within a radius of one nautical mile, excepting only police aviation without special permit. These were the VFR (visual flight rules) parameters in effect on the morning of 9/11. Once WTC1 was hit, the black smoke plume expanding southeast from the tower would pose an additional threat to navigation.

No avoidance warning from Air Traffic Control would be necessary, as no rational commercial pilot (no matter how curious) would risk his aircraft, crew or passengers in a "fly-by" of the burning North Tower. But in this anonymous Camera Planet segment we see a large, twin-jet aircraft (757/767-class) doing just that at approximately 8:58am (assuming the time signature is uncorrected by one hour), five minutes before WTC2 will be struck. Even disregarding the indicated time, as WTC1 is burning and WTC2 is not, the segment is clearly recorded between 8:46am and 9:03am. Note this white aircraft with dark engines and vertical stabilizer is not the aircraft that will impact WTC2.


This still from the video isolates the aircraft:

According to the 9/11 Commission, two F-15s were scrambled from Otis Air Force Base at 8:46am (some 33 minutes after flight controllers lost contact with AA11), and were inbound to NYC at high speed, presumably to intercept suspicious airliners. Presumably commercial flights in NY airspace would be alerted to this danger. Yet this aircraft cruises slowly near the stricken North Tower, seemingly unconcerned its behavior makes it a logical target for these fighters. Of course, the absurdly late scramble and non-arrival of the F-15s is a serious problem for the official narrative, which remains obscured by contradictory accounts from the FAA, NORAD, NEADS, the news media and the pilots themselves. (The Commission has these fighters finally arriving for Combat Air Patrol over NYC at 9:25am, after being vectored into a holding pattern off Long Island.)


At 9:03am, "UA175" approaches from the south at an improbably high speed and impacts the South Tower. CNN aired this "amateur video" of the event, which captures (without notice by Aaron Brown or Paula Zahn) what is evidently the same jet seen in the Camera Planet segment, making a similar northwest pass (but farther west, approximately over Battery Park) as the South Tower hit occurs.


This still from the video isolates the aircraft as "UA175" rips through the South Tower:

At 9:04am, Diane Sawyer of ABC News made remarks on-air about the "circling" jet she and her colleagues "all saw" prior to the second strike. She admits she "just assumed" it was the same one that struck the South Tower.


Of interest with respect to this "mystery jet" is the phenomenon, acknowledged but unexplained by the Commission, of the "phantom Flight 11". At 9:21am, after both towers had been hit, and long after "AA11" had struck the North Tower, Boston flight control, relaying information from FAA headquarters, informed NEADS that "AA11" was still in the air and heading south, perhaps to Washington, DC. Were they tracking this "third aircraft"?

My understanding

is that there are several E4B's, that more than one was up on 9/11/01 and it would make sense to have one near NYC to help with that part of the operation.

This is why we need new investigations, to get all the questions answered.
