PRESS RELEASE - United 93 Data Provided By US Govt Does Not Support Observed Events





Contact: Robert Balsamo



Pilots for 9/11 Truth, an international organization of pilots and aviation professionals, petitioned the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) via the Freedom of Information Act to obtain United Flight 93 Flight Data Recorder information, consisting of a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file and Flight Path Animation, allegedly derived from Flight 93 Flight Data Recorder (FDR).

The data provided by the NTSB contradict observed events in several significant ways:

  1. The NTSB Flight Path Animation approach path and altitude does not support observations.

  2. All Altitude data on the northern approach contradicts witnesses published by the New York Times.

  3. Witness observations of approach path contradict northern approach as described by Popular Mechanics and the US Govt. Several witnesses observed the aircraft approaching from southeast over Indian Lake and from the south prior to witnessing explosion. Parts found in New Baltimore, 8 miles southeast of crater is a direct contradiction to the northern approach claimed by the US Govt.

  4. Environmental Protection Agency reports no soil contamination of jet fuel after testing 5,000-6,000 yards of earth including 3 ground wells. Smoke plume photographed by a witness does not suggest a jet fuel rich explosion.  

  5. Impact angle according to Flight Data Recorder does not support an almost vertical impact as the govt story and crater suggests.

In May, 2007, members of Pilots for 9/11 Truth received these documents from the NTSB and began a close analysis of the data they contain. After expert review and cross check, Pilots for 9/11 Truth has concluded that the information in these NTSB documents does not support, and in some instances factually contradicts, the official government position that United Airlines Flight 93 created the impact crater as reported, in Somerset County, PA on the morning of
September 11, 2001
.According to the US Govt, United Airlines Flight 93 approached Somerset County from the North-Northwest at a high altitude on the morning of
September 11, 200

.  However, many witnesses contradict altitude as well as approach path.

Also according to reports, and as the impact crater suggests, United Airlines Flight 93 impacted terrain at an almost vertical 90 degree angle, while the Flight Data Recorder shows a 35 degree angle with up-sloping terrain, further reducing impact angle.

The information provided by the US Government does not support reports of United Airlines Flight 93 approach, impact angles, and lack of jet fuel at Somerset Country, PA.

Pilots for 9/11 Truth is committed to discovering the truth surrounding the events of
September 11, 2001
. We have contacted both the NTSB and the FBI regarding these and other inconsistencies. To date, they have refused to comment on, correct, refute, retract or offer side-letters that might explain the discrepancies between what they claim are the data extracted from the FDR of United Flight 93 and the events observed. .As concerned citizens and professionals in the aviation industry, Pilots for 9/11 Truth asks, why have these discrepancies not been addressed by agencies within the United States Government? Pilots for 9/11 Truth takes the position that an official government inquiry into these discrepancies is warranted and long overdue. We call upon our fellow citizens to write to their Congressional representatives to inform them of these discrepancies and call for an immediate investigation into this matter.

I'd like to know more about the EPA reports

# Environmental Protection Agency reports no soil contamination of jet fuel after testing 5,000-6,000 yards of earth including 3 ground wells. Smoke plume photographed by a witness does not suggest a jet fuel rich explosion.

Near bottom

Also remember we have the clip in our documentary saying they didnt smell any jet fuel.

I worked a ramp fueling and towing planes when working my way up the ranks as a kid. I was fueling a Saberliner on the ramp of Computer Associates (CA) at FRG. The aircraft spit 5 gals of jet fuel on the ramp out of its wing dump tanks.. One of the CA workers washed the fuel down into the soil. The EPA was notified by one of the CFR guys and came in to test soil. They ended up taking out more than one hundred 55 gallon drums of soil that was contaminated. And that was only for 5 gals of jet fuel. UA93 was reportedly carrying thousands of gals of jet fuel and they find no contaminatiuon of soil and ground wells? Nor do they smell it? Something is wrong there.

Hope this helps Joe...


Latest Somerset crash site findings By Tom Gibb, Post-Gazette S

Latest Somerset crash site findings may yield added IDs

Now, attention has turned to restoring the site itself.

By today, Environmental Resources Management Inc. of Pine, a contractor hired by United, expects to return 5,000 to 6,000 cubic yards of soil to the 50-foot hole dug around the crater left by the crash.

The soil is being tested for jet fuel, and at least three test wells have been sunk to monitor groundwater, since three nearby homes are served by wells, Betsy Mallison, a state Department of Environmental Protection spokeswoman, said.

So far, no contamination has been discovered, she said.

For Miller, the focus seems to rest just as heavily on aesthetics -- from removing debris to felling charred trees that could be upsetting to relatives of Flight 93's passengers and crew.

"This site won't be released until we're comfortable that we've removed as much of this debris as is humanly possible," he said.

A bomb was reported being on

A bomb was reported being on board. Wouldn't that help explain things?


How could that.....

....explain the discrepencies listed?

The government data contradicts all reports official and not. It's the same thing at the Pentagon.

Their story does not add up.
