what do you think Pit? would you have been brave enough to raid the cockpit?

i like to think i would have but i dont really know until i am in that kind of situation.
lets all applaud these brave souls. also discuss the movie and other related subjects. if this should go in a 9/11 related thread i will delete but i just thought these guys deserved their own thread.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Now I'm kind of scared...

I don't have anything else to say

yeah, I'd be one of them. I wouldn't be afraid if went to stop them and they tried to kill me, cuz I knew if noone did everyone including myself would die anyways, so it was worth a chance.

ok, so would you have tried to stop them if you didnt know that others were in danger other than those on the plane?
(these passengers knew of the previous attacks on the towers and pentagon through various phone calls, just to clarify)

yes, if something doesn't seem right and the pilots are claiming of a bomb, I think I still would try to go stop them. I probably would be hesitent, and less sure of what to do. So if I hadn't heared of the other attacks I'm not exactly sure what I'd do

Only if you know the hijackers are on a suicide mission. Then you have nothing to lose.
If the hijackers as in most cases are looking for publicity or to satisfy political motives, then it is best not to interfere at all.
Just because I have some strong opinions doesn't mean I agree with everything I say.

That was true pre-9/11 If I'm ever on any public transportation that somebody attempts to hijack I'll kill them or die trying. I'm not interested in becoming their political statement.

This, really.

On at least one of the flights that hit the towers, the hijackers told the passengers to stay calm because they were just going back to the airport. Clever, but a dick move. Kept everyone in their seats

I'd light a camp fire and eat my last grilled meat. I'd then open the window for a few seconds and pee on the turbines just for the lulz.

That was the plane the government wanted to fly into the Pentagon, instead they took it over and it crashed. So soon after they fired the tomahawk missile into the Pentagon.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

This article really hit me because my job's actually to load f-16's. It's odd to think that two people, just like the pilots that see every day were willing to sacrifice themselves. That the people who do the same job as me could've been responsible for their lives...

I'd rather die trying. I at least have a chance at living if I try. If they shoot me, oh well. That's one or more less bullets to use on other passengers who may be able to save themselves.

That plane would have been ****ed by F-16s before it got to the White House.

OT: I'd give it a go... better to go down desperately trying to gauge a terrorist's eyes than die sitting down!

Pretty much the only way the f-16s could take it down was by crashing directly into it. The ones available only had little over 100 rounds in their gun systems instead of being fully loaded. According to the article i posted farther up it seems like they had no air intercept missiles loaded on them and the time it would take for ammo to deliver the missiles to the weapons troops and them to load them was too long. Not to mention that the jets would've had to take off without an operational check to know that they would work properly. Those pilots were basically told that they were very likely to have to commit suicide.
