Another Day, Another Lame Conspiracy Theory
This time it's "Flight 93 was shot down!"
This one has all the earmarks of a typical CT. Evidence presented is practically nil and what there is is frequently wrong, like this:
But a bigger mystery is why the engines went missing.
Considering their weight, they should have plunged deep into the earth along with the rest of the airliner.
Yet they weren’t in the crater and only a one-ton segment of an engine was ever recovered, again more than a mile from the crash site. The FBI said, unconvincingly, that it had ‘bounced’ there.
In fact, one engine was buried in the ground and the other did bounce, but only a few hundred yards, not a mile from the crash site. And get this:
They found it hard to believe that an airliner up to 155ft long, with two engines each weighing more than six tons, could have penetrated the ground so completely as to utterly disappear. Had it, in reality, been blown to pieces in mid-air?
Can we say something obvious here? If the plane had been blown up in midair, wouldn't there be debris over a wider radius? Wouldn't the debris be more recongizable? Here's part of the plane that was exploded over Lockerbie in 1988:
Then we get the usual "isn't this mysterious" about stuff that has been explained ad nauseum before. Talking about Todd Beamer's call with Lisa Jefferson of Verizon:
She had not taken a recording of it, contrary to convention. She had not gone through the routine questions in her distress-call manual. She had not connected this agitated man to his wife waiting anxiously at home. Nor had she informed his wife subsequently of the call as promised.
It is a shame that she did not record the call; at the same time, can you imagine being the person who received that phone call, knowing what Jefferson must have by then?
As to why she didn't connect Todd Beamer with his wife, he was worried that she might lose the baby. And Lisa did inform his wife subsequently of the call, but it was delayed because of the FBI:
It happened on a Tuesday. I went back to work on that Wednesday, Thursday, just like as if nothing had ever happened, and on that Friday, when I went into work, the FBI did not want me to mention anything to his wife until they got back in touch with me. And then Friday, they got in touch with me and told me it was okay to let her know the message that I had for her.
