P.S. from Dennis Cimino:
YES. and the cockpit door parameter is part of the data stream recorded by the
flight data recorder, and the signal never toggled. meaning that not even a
forced entry was attempted.
so, having said that, it was not possible
for the cockpit crew to have been attacked by hijackers because they couldn't
possibly fit under any door slot.
and they couldn't have taken the plane
over without a struggle that would have guarantee'd the A/P would disengage and
send the aircraft into an 'out of control 'state very rapidly.
we saw no
evidence of A/P disengage, stick shaker kicking in, or overspeed warnings on an
aircraft that according to the government, exceeded it's safe flight speed by
over 150 knots as it descended to the Pentagon and circled first.
