Does destiny, twist of fate, or divine intervention steer us to the most important occasions in our lives? whilst a bit boy, I had continually desired to fly. My earliest goals have been approximately flying like Superman, jetting round simply utilizing my hands as wings. i finally obtained a level in Aeronautical Engineering, and the USAF taught me the way to fly airplanes. Later, on the airways, I grew to become a Captain, occupying the "left seat." I had created my dream job.

On Sept. 11, i may were piloting a "transcon" flying journey, probably together with a visit from Boston to la, or from Washington D.C. to la. The 11th of September terrorist hijackings have been my routes and my airplane, the Boeing 757 and 767. The terrorists can have selected considered one of my flights. as a substitute, i used to be on holiday with my family members, status around the highway from the White apartment whilst the assaults happened. We felt and heard American airways Flight seventy seven because it crashed into the Pentagon, perpetually altering my perspective.

Less than one month after flying used to be resumed following 11th of September, a deranged passenger broke down my cockpit door with the motive to kill the "terrorist pilots" he inspiration have been flying the plane. whereas trying to land, I later figured out we have been nearly shot down by means of F-16's. this is often my tale, yet what approximately Sept. 11 itself? How may well it have occurred within the first position? On our soil? How may well this take place to the main robust nation the area has ever recognized? To the rustic with its intelligence neighborhood, with its army, with our a long time of struggling with adversaries world wide? We have been sitting geese! used to be September 11 a hoax? used to be Sept. 11 a central authority conspiracy like a few imagine the moon landings have been faked via the U.S. govt?

Seen in the course of the prism of the 9-11 fee findings, we will be able to study the disasters of the intelligence group, the army, the shortcoming of a transparent govt coverage, and the mismanagement of the rules that have been in position, all of which ended in the September 11 assaults. Will one other 9-11 take place back? Have we realized the tough classes to insure that it'll now not take place again?

This publication solutions those severe questions and provides my standpoint of 11th of September from a pilot's element of view.
