American Airlines Flight 11
Flight 11 provided daily, nonstop service from Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The aircraft was a Boeing 767, tail number N334AA. On September 11 the passengers for the 7:45 am flight included Mohamed Atta, Abdulaziz al-Omari, Wail al-Shehri, Waleed al-Shehri and Satam al-Suqami, who would later be named as suspected hijackers.
- The hijackers weren't on the 9/11 passenger manifests?
- Variations in different Flight 11 passenger lists suggest they are fabrications?
- There were unusually few passengers on the 9/11 flights?
- Only a very small number of passengers are listed in the Social Security Death Index?
- The calls from the hijacked flights were faked?
- The flights were flown by remote control, not hijackers? (Technical analysis)
- Flight 11 didn't really crash at the WTC?
- Why did the FAA report that Flight 11 was still in the air, more than 30 minutes after it had crashed?
- The black boxes were secretly recovered?

Wreckage and personal effects were recovered from the scene. Some of these shots are labelled only as plane fragments from ground zero, and not specifically identified as coming from Flight 11 or 175.
The Flight 11 passenger manifest has been published in the Boston Globe, and at the Moussaoui trial, and we've obtained further documents that reportedly came from the FBI.
