I didn't call you anything - if that is how it came across - I was bringing up afjag for trying to bring that element into the thread.

There is a photo on one of the news broadcasts of her leaning on the pylon of 87-0241 but looks a middle eastern location.

Pretty good odds that any jet she flew would have had at least TP ammo loaded. More than enough fire power to down a jetliner. Never would have needed to ram.

Wouldn't surprise me if she wasn't flying at all that day. Nice PR story for the USAF though: Female pilot defends American skies on 9/11. The PC police can't be trusted, and this is one of the ways they write (revisionist) history.


You sound angry. Hope those P/C Police aren't taunting you. Good luck, bro.

Keep in mind they were not flying under NORAD control, they were not armed, and they carried no authenticators to verify any shoot down orders. The NDANG was already on the seen under NORAD control, armed and with appropriate authenticators. The whole story about how she was going to ram FLT 93 is a pathetic joke. This was just a sad cry for attention to try to get some fame and she used it to the full extent to include being on some TV shows...


Wow. The OP simply asked if we knew the TN and you respond with a rant about females flying F-16s, go on about what the driver did or did not do, what was authorized, and more. You end your trolling with claims of sad attention and fame to gain, TV shows, etc.

The thread started with a simple request and you respond with this little diatribe and then act offended when others call you out?

Relax partner, we're all in this together.
