What happened to Flight 93 then?

(This website doesn't necessarily agree with all, or any of these theories.)

Did Flight 93 land safely on 9/11 at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport?

"A Boeing 767 out of Boston made an emergency landing Tuesday at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport due to concerns that it may have a bomb aboard, said Mayor Michael R. White.
White said the plane had been moved to a secure area of the airport, and was evacuated.
United identified the plane as Flight 93. The airline [didn't] say how many people were aboard the flight.
United said it was also "deeply concerned" about another flight, Flight 175, a Boeing 767, which was bound from Boston to Los Angeles.
On behalf of the airline CEO James Goodwin said: "The thoughts of everyone at United are with the passengers and crew of these flights. Our prayers are also with everyone on the ground who may have been involved.
"United is working with all the relevant authorities, including the FBI, to obtain further information on these flights," he said." -WCPO-TV (09/11/01) [Reprinted at:  911Truth.org, Global Free Press, Rense.com]

Flight 93: Forty lives, one destiny

"At some point -- the best estimation is about 40 minutes into the flight west -- at least three of the hijackers stood up and put red bandanas around their heads. Two of them forced their way into the cockpit. One took the loudspeaker microphone, unaware it could also be heard by air traffic controllers, and announced that someone had a bomb onboard and the flight was returning to the airport. He told them he was the pilot, but spoke with an accent.
U.S. Rep. John P. Murtha, D-Johnstown, a ranking Democrat on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, described the announcement this way: "As they got toward Cleveland, the hijackers said 'Look, just be calm, we're going to land this plane.'" -Pittsburg Post-Gazette (10/28/01)

What Happened on Flight 93?

"Suddenly Flight 93's transponder, which sends controllers a radar signal with identifying information, switched off. That got Cleveland Center's attention.
It was just after 9:30. As the president was appearing before cameras in Florida, Cleveland air traffic controllers were hearing an American voice aboard Flight 93 yell, "Get out of here!"
"Someone had keyed the mic," says Feith. "They had an open microphone when all this commotion was going on."
Perhaps it was Captain Dahl or his co-pilot, LeRoy Homer. Then Cleveland heard screaming. Investigators can only speculate whether it was Dahl and Homer fighting to defend the aircraft, or being murdered.
But at 9:32 a.m., a chilling radio transmission - intended for the passengers. It said:
Hijacker: "Ladies and gentlemen, here it's the captain, please sit down. Keep remaining sitting. We have a bomb aboard."

Two minutes later, Cleveland control picked up another bizarre transmission from one of two hijackers now locked in the cockpit. It said:
Hijacker: "Hi, this is the captain. We'd like you all to remain seated. There is a bomb aboard, and we are going to turn back to the airport. And they have our demands so please remain quiet." - MSNBC (09/03/02) [Reprinted at:  billstclair.com]

Plane makes emergency landing
by Paul Singer
"A Boeing 767 out of Boston made an emergency landing Tuesday at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport because of concerns that it may have a bomb aboard, said Mayor Michael R. White.
The plane was sitting on a runway at the airport's west end with approximately 200 passengers on board. The mayor had said earlier that the plane was being evacuated, but an airport spokeswoman said the passengers remained inside.
It was unclear whether any passengers had been taken off the plane.
A SWAT team and bomb unit were at the scene. However, White said, "As of this moment we do not know that this plane is in stress or duress."
The airplane landed at about 10:45 a.m., but the airport released no information about the plane's intended destination. Normally, planes of this size do not land at Hopkins.
"We have no confirmed information that this was a hijacking," the mayor said. But White said authorities are still concerned that there may be a bomb aboard the plane.
Cleveland police blocked off all entrances to the airport terminal, and bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in to the baggage pickup areas.
He said airport officials reported that a second airplane in distress had passed through Cleveland airspace earlier Tuesday morning before being handed off to Toledo. Officials at Toledo Express Airport did not immediately have any information about a plane headed from Cleveland.
Six other planes were diverted to Akron-Canton Airport, said airport aviation director Fred Krum. "They were told to get down," Krum said. The planes were bound for Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Boston when they were asked to land at Akron.
White said air traffic controllers said they could hear screaming within the Boeing 767. Additional details were not available.
WTAM radio reported that NASA had closed its Glenn Research Center, which is located near the airport.
The mayor ordered the evacuation of all major public buildings downtown, including City Hall, the Justice Center and the convention center. He has asked owners of large commercial high-rises downtown to evacuate. Federal buildings downtown also were closed.
Traffic in downtown Cleveland was backed up for blocks as people tried to get home.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Jacobs Field, Gund Arena and Browns Stadium also were closed, and the mayor said he asked two downtown college campuses to close.
White said there would be a parking ban on downtown streets." -AP (09/11/04) [Reprinted at: 911truth.org, Global Free Press]

Hijack Ends in Pennsylvania Crash

"ABCNEWS has learned that shortly before changing directions, someone in the cockpit radioed in and asked the FAA for a new flight plan, with a final destination of Washington.
An FBI official said the crash "appears" to be an act of terrorism, but Pentagon officials firmly denied to ABCNEWS rumors that the U.S. military shot down the aircraft to prevent it from being crashed into Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, or another government facility." - ABC (09/11/01) [Reprinted at:  newsmine.org]

 
 

 

Was this original AP news article from WCPO-TV about Flight 93 landing at Hopkins airport taken off it's website because it was "factually incorrect," or was it taken off because it was correct?  If this story was "factually incorrect," why didn't they explain the mistake instead of removing it?

Was it Delta flight 1989 and not Flight 93 that landed at Hopkins airport, or did both planes land there?

No explosives found on Cleveland plane
by Paul Singer
CLEVELAND - No explosives were found aboard a Delta flight from Boston that was forced to land at Cleveland Hopkins International
 Airport because of fears it had been hijacked, city officials said.
The Federal Aviation Administration had been informed at 9:45 a.m. of a possible hijacking of a plane headed for Cleveland, said FBI spokesman Mark Bullock.
Flight 1989 to Los Angeles was not hijacked but was grounded by Delta because it was in the same flight pattern as a plane that was hijacked and struck the World Trade Center in New York, Bullock said.
The plane landed about 10:45 a.m. today with 78 passengers aboard, airport officials said.
The Boeing 767 was evacuated and searched, said Della Homenik, spokeswoman for Mayor Michael R. White. Passengers were taken to a nearby NASA facility.
FBI spokesman Bob Hawk said that since the Delta plane left Boston about the same time as the hijacked plane, passengers were being interviewed to see if they saw anything unusual this morning.
After the plane landed, the airport was closed and bomb-sniffing dogs were brought to baggage pickup areas.
Meanwhile, White said a second airplane in distress had passed through Cleveland airspace Tuesday morning before being handed off to Toledo.
Officials at Toledo Express Airport did not immediately have any information about the plane." -The Post (Ohio Univ.)/AP (09/11/01)
