United Airlines Flight 175
Flight 175, a Boeing 767 with the tail number N612UA, was scheduled to depart Logan at 8:00 am for Los Angeles International Airport. On September 11 the passengers included Marwan al-Shehhi, Fayez Banihammad, Ahmed al-Ghamdi, Hamza al-Ghamdi and Mohand al-Shehri, who would later be named as suspected hijackers.
- The hijackers weren't on the 9/11 passenger manifests?
- 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?
- NORAD were alerted of the hijacking at 8:43, not 9:03, as the 9/11 Commission claimed?
- The calls from the hijacked flights were faked?
- The flights were flown by remote control, not hijackers? (Technical analysis)
- Photos show the plane that hit the south tower was the wrong size to be Flight 175?
- There's no real evidence that Flight 175 crashed at the WTC?
- The black boxes were secretly recovered?
- FAA records show Flight 175 registration number was valid for years after 9/11?
