the moving map, the moving transmissions, and the fact that its not just ATC... terrifying to say the least.

This sends a chill down my spine every time I watch it. But on the other hand nice collection of all the planes ATC comms.

"[It's a] real world hijacking."
"Cool! Where is it?"

Poor choice of words?

Interesting compilation to say the least. I never knew how confused everyone was at first.

I took away two things from this. 1. When a totally unexpected attack happens, there's no time for disbelief. 2. Related to that, there is a delicate balance required between necessary calm and necessary panic, with little or no tolerance for error. I'm glad I was never in such a situation.

The blood-curdling screams of "MAYDAY" from United 93 were the most disturbing.

i spent 20+ years in a 911 dispatch: this is how info comes in, piecemeal and incredulous. after this day, i am sure steps were taken to facilitate response, but i think everyone did a great job in an unbelievable situation.

I agree, patt, and I hope my comment didn't suggest otherwise. BTW, I think that for someone to say "Cool!" was just about the same as saying "F_ck!" under the circumstances. It's just an utterance of astonishment, and no real meaning can be ascribed to it.

Yes, very chilling. Please remember, fear is the terrorists goal. Don't let them win. Be concern and watchful while living your life to the fullest.

Very well put together, with audio, written transcripts and map plotting the course of the 4 planes as they met their tragic end. Let's never forget.

Amazing. There is surely a lot more content where this came from, so I hope someone is working on getting access to it and making even more of these interfaces to share the content with us.

@Jared, sorry about that, just unmindfully thinking. Correction United 93 and 175. Sorry.
Some things never change, to summarize:

ID TECH: Uh, Boston has no clue where they are and he’s goin’ let Washington Center know that this is very serious.
ID TECH: Because nobody’s acting serious there.
DOOLEY: Yeah, fuckin’.
So very sad, so very true. I feel for the families.

This is incredible. As a aviation buff hearing what was really going on & said makes that whole day so much more emotional. I got chills the whole way through. I'm squawk the hell out of this & re-posting on my FB.

I am sorry, it is so hard to write down about that terrible events with a massive loss of lives. But I am still not convinced in certain issues by the official 911 Commission report. Is it truly realistic for a non-professional pilot of light general aviation to control a B-757 with a very high degree of proficiency required for a flight AA77 to find its target at Pentagon? Is it possible without any controller guidance, without any VOR/DME or GPS guidance to perform a 180-degree turn at about 120 nm from the target, to chose a correct heading and top of the descent, to perform such a descent arriving at 7000 feet at 38 miles from the target which is almost an ideal point of final maneuver? And than it took only one cycling with a 330-degree turn for a hijacker to find Pentagon, to descend to 2200 feet, and to accelerate the 757 to 550 mph in a timely manner. And finally, with only single straight dive he dove into Pentagon which is not a tall nor a solely standing building. All these actions are more typical for a very experienced and cold-blooded 757 pilot than to a person who occupied the 757 cockpit for the first time in a life. If the heavy planes pilots have another opinion, please share!
