Pilot’s 9/11 position

Re: George Welle’s Sept. 13 letter, “Simple answers”:
A quote of mine referenced in different letters printed by The Star (Woody Holmes published Sept. 8 and George Welle Sept. 13, require my response.
Episode 5 of what has now become the must-see summer series.
Jean-Marie Bigard goes back over the morning of Georges W. Bush, President of the United State and commander-in-chef of the armed forces, during his visit to Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida at the moment America was attacked on that fateful day, September 11th, 2001.
As promised, famous French comic Bigard speaks directly to Obama in his latest weekly episode while still poking fun at the Official 9/11 Commission Report. Bigard uses the age old art of humor to explain once again what disturbs him in the infamous report riddled with lies, contradictions, omissions and distortions.
It looks like Bigard doesn't buy the official story which propels him to demand that Obama himself should instruct the FBI to release a video showing a Boeing 757 ...but only if Obama has the courage to do so.
You may recall a previous article about the famous French Comic Jean-Marie Bigard published here on 911blogger in October 2008. Jean-Marie Bigard was fiercely criticized for publicly claiming that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were an "enormous lie". Since then he has become persona non grata in the media because of his “deviant thinking”.
However, Bigard isn’t letting all of this get him down: “Opening my big mouth cost me a lot. But I think what has cost me even more was keeping my big mouth shut. So now I’ve decided never to shut my big mouth again”, Bigard said recently.
Jean-Marie Bigard has decided to return to the subject of 9/11 with a series of weekly video clips published every Friday on his own account at the video sharing website DailyMotion.
Below are the first two episodes with English subtitles:
The Magical Passports (Episode 1)
In all the valuable research that has been conducted into 9/11, a significant detail has so far been mostly overlooked: An examination of news reports and other accounts reveals that a surprising proportion of the people on the four targeted planes had only been booked onto those flights at the last minute, often the day before or even the morning of September 11. Pilots on three of the four planes, more than half of all the flight attendants, and many passengers--including almost half those on Flight 93--were not originally booked to be on those flights.
It is difficult to dismiss all this evidence as mere coincidence. There must be specific reasons that we do not yet know about. For the truth to be uncovered will require further study by independent researchers, scrutiny by the press, and proper formal investigations of the 9/11 attacks.
Below is a summary of these latecomers to the four planes: American Airlines Flights 11 and 77, and United Airlines Flights 175 and 93.
UPDATE: THE NTSB MADE THE FILES DISAPPEAR FROM THEIR WEBSITE AFTER THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN. I HAVE UPLOADED THE PDF FILES TO THE INTERNET ARCHIVE, HERE:
Hold onto your boxers.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB.GOV), Flight 175 originated not at Logan airport. No. But at the BOSTON HELIPORT, CODE 1MA3.
The code for Logan is "BOS," not "1MA3." Check list:
I did not personally discover this info. It was posted several places including Pilots for 911 Truth. Another poster suggested that the heliport was actually closed at that time.
However, I did the obvious thing, and looked into what they said about Flight 11, also supposedly out of Boston.
Do you want to know?
This is my "Holy Fucking Shit" moment of the week.
I spoke with Capt Wittenberg the other night on the phone. We had a wonderful conversation and he wants to be part of our group.
Sofia (Producer, 9/11 Mysteries) has been trying to get us out to the AZ conference for the past few weeks making contact with Kent. However, Kent has been overwhelmed with working on the conference and removing the possible controversy surrounding the event. We look forward to attending, but still waiting to hear and work out the details. If we do attend, Russ will be there with me to represent our organization and speaking about issues regarding 9/11.
Capt Wittenberg qualifications and experience are as follows....

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!
