Expert Pilots say Flight 77 maneuvers impossible on 9/11

Postby Scepcop » 16 Jul 2009, 03:16

To all those who still believe the official story of 9/11, here's a big question for you:

Do you think that US Navy Top Gun pilots and commercial airline pilots with 40+ years of flying experience, logging 23,000 hours of air-time, know their shit regarding aviation maneuvers?

If so, do you think you are qualified to argue or disagree with them?

See below what the world's top pilots said about Flight 77, the plane that hit the Pentagon on 9/11. Pay attention to the part in bold.

U.S. Navy 'Top Gun' Pilot Questions 9/11

by Alan Miller Page 1 of 1 page(s)

September 5, 2007 - U.S. Navy Top Gun pilot, Commander Ralph Kolstad, started questioning the official account of 9/11 within days of the event. It just didnt make any sense to me, he said. And now 6 years after 9/11 he says, When one starts using his own mind, and not what one was told, there is very little to believe in the official story.

Now retired, Commander Kolstad was a top-rated fighter pilot during his 20-year Navy career. Early in his career, he was accorded the honor of being selected to participate in the Navys Top Gun air combat school, officially known as the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School. The Tom Cruise movie, Top Gun reflects the experience of the young Navy pilots at the school. Eleven years later, Commander Kolstad was further honored by being selected to become a Top Gun adversary instructor. While in the Navy, he flew F-4 Phantoms, A-4 Skyhawks, and F-14 Tomcats and completed 250 aircraft carrier landings.

Commander Kolstad had a second career after his 20 years of Navy active and reserve service and served as a commercial airline pilot for 27 years, flying for American Airlines and other domestic and international careers. He flew Boeing 727, 757 and 767, McDonnell Douglas MD-80, and Fokker F-100 airliners. He has flown a total of over 23,000 hours in his career.

Commander Kolstad is especially critical of the account of American Airlines Flight 77 that allegedly crashed into the Pentagon. He says, At the Pentagon, the pilot of the Boeing 757 did quite a feat of flying. I have 6,000 hours of flight time in Boeing 757s and 767s and I could not have flown it the way the flight path was described.

Commander Kolstad adds, I was also a Navy fighter pilot and Air Combat Instructor and have experience flying low altitude, high speed aircraft. I could not have done what these beginners did. Something stinks to high heaven!


He points to the physical evidence at the Pentagon impact site and asks in exasperation, Where is the damage to the wall of the Pentagon from the wings? Where are the big pieces that always break away in an accident? Where is all the luggage? Where are the miles and miles of wire, cable, and lines that are part and parcel of any large aircraft? Where are the steel engine parts? Where is the steel landing gear? Where is the tail section that would have broken into large pieces?


So, one of the world's best pilots says he CANNOT duplicate the maneuvers of Flight 77, and that it's not possible. What does that tell you?

Are you more qualified than Commander Ralph Kolstad to comment on the maneuver of a 757? Do you have similar qualifications that he does? Have you logged 23,000 hours of flight time? Have you flown fighter jets and 757's for 40 years? What are YOUR qualifications against his?

Also, here is a similar statement from another experienced season pilot with 35 years experience flying commercial airlines and been on 100 combat missions for the Air Force. He explains below why Flight 77's maneuvers are impossible, even for the best pilots. Again, are you more qualified than he is about the plausibility of Flight 77's maneuvers on 9/11?! Pay attention to his words in bold below.

http://patriotsquestion911.com/pilots.html

Capt. Russ Wittenberg, U.S. Air Force – Retired commercial pilot. Flew for Pan Am and United Airlines for 35 years. Aircraft flown: Boeing 707, 720, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, and 777. 30,000+ total hours flown. Had previously flown the actual two United Airlines aircraft that were hijacked on 9/11 (Flight 93, which impacted in Pennsylvania, and Flight 175, the second plane to hit the WTC). Former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot with over 100 combat missions.

Image

Video interview 9/11 Ripple Effect 8/07: "I flew the two actual aircraft which were involved in 9/11; the Fight number 175 and Flight 93, the 757 that allegedly went down in Shanksville and Flight 175 is the aircraft that's alleged to have hit the South Tower. I don't believe it's possible for, like I said, for a terrorist, a so-called terrorist to train on a [Cessna] 172, then jump in a cockpit of a 757-767 class cockpit, and vertical navigate the aircraft, lateral navigate the aircraft, and fly the airplane at speeds exceeding it's design limit speed by well over 100 knots, make high-speed high-banked turns, exceeding -- pulling probably 5, 6, 7 G's. And the aircraft would literally fall out of the sky. I couldn't do it and I'm absolutely positive they couldn't do it." http://americanbuddhist.net

Article 7/17/05: "The government story they handed us about 9/11 is total B.S. plain and simple." … Wittenberg convincingly argued there was absolutely no possibility that Flight 77 could have "descended 7,000 feet in two minutes, all the while performing a steep 280 degree banked turn before crashing into the Pentagon's first floor wall without touching the lawn."…

"For a guy to just jump into the cockpit and fly like an ace is impossible - there is not one chance in a thousand," said Wittenberg, recalling that when he made the jump from Boeing 727's to the highly sophisticated computerized characteristics of the 737's through 767's it took him considerable time to feel comfortable flying." http://www.arcticbeacon.com

Audio Interview 9/16/04: Regarding Flight 77, which allegedly hit the Pentagon. "The airplane could not have flown at those speeds which they said it did without going into what they call a high speed stall. The airplane won’t go that fast if you start pulling those high G maneuvers at those bank angles. … To expect this alleged airplane to run these maneuvers with a total amateur at the controls is simply ludicrous...

It’s roughly a 100 ton airplane. And an airplane that weighs 100 tons all assembled is still going to have 100 tons of disassembled trash and parts after it hits a building. There was no wreckage from a 757 at the Pentagon. … The vehicle that hit the Pentagon was not Flight 77. We think, as you may have heard before, it was a cruise missile."

Senior Military, Intelligence, Law Enforcement,
and Government Officials Question
the 9/11 Commission Report

Many well known and respected senior U.S. military officers, intelligence services and law enforcement veterans, and government officials have expressed significant criticism of the 9/11 Commission Report or have made public statements that contradict the Report. Several even allege government complicity in the terrible acts of 9/11. This page of the website is a collection of their statements. The website does not represent any organization and it should be made clear that none of these individuals are affiliated with this website.

Listed below are statements by more than 200 of these senior officials. Their collective voices give credibility to the claim that the 9/11 Commission Report is tragically flawed. These individuals cannot be simply dismissed as irresponsible believers in some 9/11 conspiracy theory. Their sincere concern, backed by their decades of service to their country, demonstrate that criticism of the Report is not irresponsible, illogical, nor disloyal, per se. In fact, it can be just the opposite. (continued below)

Obviously. No kidding.

Hey get this. When I brought up this post to some skeptics on my mailing list, they argued that these two experienced pilots quoted were only trained to fly aircraft safely and not to do kamikaze maneuvers, and that therefore these pilots were not qualified to assess whether Flight 77's kamikaze maneuvers were possible or not. Then they said that only aircraft engineers can assess an aircraft's ability to do certain maneuvers, and not the pilots themselves.

Is that the stupidest thing you ever heard or what?

So I ask these skeptics what qualifications they have in aviation maneuvers and why their opinion is more valid than pilots with 40+ years of experience. They offered no credentials or qualifications. So I laughed and said,

"Get real! Who do you think people would rather believe, pilots with 40+ years of real life experience flying various aircraft, including jet fighters and airliners, or some skeptic BSing behind a keyboard making up shit as he goes along?! Gimme a break!"

How ridiculous can they get?! And they call themselves "rational"? LOL

So then I ask them for a list of aircraft engineers who say that Flight 77's maneuvers were possible, engineers that are not affiliated with the government or are in danger of losing their jobs for speaking freely. They couldn't come up with any either.

Why do these guys have no sense of humility? Sheesh. They act like know-it-alls, even in areas they are not qualified in at all.

It was good huh? It's one of those films where you can actually FEEL the thoughts and feelings of the speakers. The father at the end who was in pain mourning over his son was very touching.

Skeptics,
Do your qualifications match his? Have you flown 100 types of aircraft? Do you hold every FAA airmanship certificate that exists?

http://www.patriotsquestion911.com/pilots.html

John Lear – Retired commercial airline pilot with over 19,000+ total hours flown in over 100 different types of planes for 10 different airlines in 60 different countries around the world. Flew for over 40 years. Holds every certificate ever offered by the FAA and has 23 different FAA type ratings. Held 17 world records including speed around the world in a Lear Jet Model 24, set in 1966. He was presented with the PATCO award for outstanding airmanship in 1968, and the Symons Wave memorial. Flight experience includes Boeing 707 and 727, McDonnell Douglas DC-8, Lockheed L-1011 and many others. Son of Bill Lear, founder of Lear Jet Corp.

* Audio interview with Rob Balsamo 3/9/07: Regarding the Flight Data Recorder information for Flight 77, which allegedly hit the Pentagon, released by the NTSB

John Lear: There's a lot things in that tape that came up, that if you're a pilot, you say, "Hey, wait a minute. That's bull****. That could never happen in a million years." ...

Rob Balsamo: What did you think about 9/11 after you saw it?

John Lear: Well, you know, five minutes after it happened, I knew that it was a scam. ... No Boeing 757 ever crashed into the Pentagon. No Boeing 757 ever crashed at Shanksville. ... And no Arab hijacker, ever in a million years, ever flew into the World Trade Center. And if you got 30 minutes I'll tell you exactly why he couldn't do it the first time. Now, I'd have trouble doing it the first time.

Rob Balsamo: Yeah, same here.

John Lear: Maybe if I had a couple tries to line up a few building, I could have done it. But certainly not the first time and certainly not at 500 or 600 miles an hour.

Rob Balsamo: Yeah, as a matter of fact, one of our members, he was a 737 Check Airman. He was in the sim at the time on September 11 and right after it happened they tried to duplicate it in the simulator and they said they couldn't do it. They were trying to hit the Towers and they couldn't do it. ...

John Lear: Yeah, it would be an amazing feat of airmanship. ...

John Lear: People ask, you know, why do I think that 9/11 was a scam. They say, "Why would the government do that?" And I said, there's three basic reasons. Number 1; they wanted to take away all our liberties and they had to pose a threat to do that. Number 2; they wanted a reason to go into Afghanistan. ... Then the third thing was we had to have a pretext for going into Iraq.

Sounds to me like your pilot is making a judgemental statement based on something other than evidence. "Well, you know, five minutes after it happened, I knew that it was a scam. "

Don't jump to conclusions. His evidence is that he knows how planes fly and work and how aerodynamics works too. Lear has flown over a hundred type of aircraft. He's way more qualified than you! That's for sure. His statements explain why. Kolstad explained the same thing.

Look at your side on the other hand. Four crashed airliners and no large pieces of debris? How gullible can you get? Sheesh.

Skeptics are not thinkers. They are disinfo people that try to keep us within the matrix.

Hi Skepcop,

I have a couple side questions if you dont mind.

Are you tlking about skeptics or pseudo-skeptics here?

Also, Can you explain what you mean by "the matrix" in this context.

Thanks.

Captain John Prater, President of the Air Line Pilots Association and a pilot for over 35 years in B-767, 727, DC-8, DC-10, 757, and 777 knows a hell of a lot more than both of us and he doesn't question the capabilities of those planes being flown into the buildings. Why should I? (or you?)

I don't want to pass judgement about this person you are worshipping Winston, (okay, maybe I am passing judgement,) but here are some quotes from John Lear on a Coast to Coast program:
"Every single planet is inhabited by folks just like us-- the only difference being is that we are the only ones that wake up in the morning looking for somebody to kill."

"Aliens are all over the place. They are at the mall, in the casinos, they are all around. You can't really tell. I have probably seen one but was not aware of it."

motorcity
"Do your wife and four children agree with the things you say?"
John Lear
"No, my wife is from Mississippi. My kids listen politely because I'm their Dad."

And, my personal favorite:

jesse
"Can you tell us more about the more about the "soul collector" on the moon?"
John Lear
"I believe that the tower in the Sinus Medii is at least one soul collector. Sleeper disagrees. After you die you go to a collector and your life, your pitiful life is reviewed with you. Then you come back for another try. You have to learn to live without envy, hate or greed or you ain't getting off this planet..."

To summarize, John Lear's opinion on 9/11 doesn't hold very much weight with me as compared to, oh, say most every other pilot alive today.

John Lear explains in more detail here in this video:



Also see this video starting at 8:00 where a Boeing Rep confirms that an aircraft CANNOT move at 400mph while only 700ft in the air. No one can make it move that fast at that altitude.

Sorry Scepcop, but based in part on the information I posted above, John Lear's opinion about 9/11 is meaningless. Hell even his wife doesn't agree with him!

I love how Winston's gone full on no-planer on us :roll:

I guess it was only a matter of time, he believes anything anyone says so long as he thinks it disagrees with a popular opinion.

I just uploaded an interview with Ralph Kolstad here:

Description:

Kevin Barrett interviews Commander Ralph Kolstad, a retired US Navy Top Gun Pilot and Veteran Airline Pilot, who explains why the official version of the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers were not aerodynamically possible and can not be replicated by any pilot in the world. As one of the most experienced pilots in the world with over 100 combat missions under his belt, Kolstad's testimony and analysis carries a lot of weight.
