    I happen to know a bona fide, no bullshit, card carrying Top Gun. I'll ask him what he thinks.

    One other thing. You should register to the forums at Pilotsofamerica.com and pose this question there. Lots of experience there and they love to talk shop.

    Thanks. Please provide sources for the 767s that have disintegrated in flight. I am trying to look at your questions a bit at a time.

    This is interesting:

    CPL and had started working on jets in simulations. I know, never piloted is still correct, but it says they had at least 600 hundred hours and licenses in some cases.

    Have no time to source right now, have fun.
    From the FBI summary of Al-Shehhi's movements, actions and transactions (http://www.911myths.com/images/7/7c/...n-Alshehhi.pdf)

    Intermittent training at huffman from 07/17/2000 to 01/2001
    7/30 solo flights at huffman
    08/09/2000 requests a new flight instructor
    08/14/2000 Al-Shehhi and Atta take and pass their private pilot airplane tests, with Atta scoring higher.
    09/2000 Al-shehhi receives 3-4 hours of training a day for the month of September at Jones Aviation in Florida
    09/08/2000 Issued something called a se/pp certificate using a 1971 Cesna owned by Huffman.
    10/94/2000 Both men take and fail their Stage I exam at Jones Aviation.
    11/06/2000 Both men take and pass their FAA Instrument Rating Airplane test. Atta scores the higher of the two.
    12/19/2000 Both men take and pass their FAA/FCC Commercial Pilot Airplane tests. Atta scores the highest. Inspection of this test will show that it deals specifically with propeller aircraft http://www.faa.gov/training_testing/...S-8081-12C.pdf
    12/21/2000 Al-Shehhi receives his FAA Commercial Pilots license, certified in Multi-engine land, Single engine land, and Airplane instrument
    12/29/2000-12/30/2000 Both men train in a 727 simulator at Simcenter in the Miami area. This school was later closed for defrauding students.
    01/04/2001 Al-Shehhi conducts first solo flight in Venice, FLA

    This is the full extent of Al-Shehhi's training operating aircraft.

Typically a plane is more responsive at high speed because of the increased airflow over the control surfaces. Obviously, radical banking could cause a wing to come off at high speed, but it seems like making minor corrections to fly to a specific point would be easier. The slower you fly, the harder it is to maneuver. The controls get mushy and respond slowly because air is flowing over the wing slower. That's why landing is the hardest thing to learn. Just my quick observation.
    Prop planes do not have the thrust to travel at speeds where turbulence causes the plane's wings to distort and sheer off, or to move the center of pressure so far aft that the controls reverse.

    Regarding the commercial rating - this means he would have had a minimum of 250 hours. And obtaining an instrument rating is no easy task and requires a pretty decent level of knowledge. I don't know the total number of hours he had or the extent of his simulator training, but you can't paint this guy like he was a rank noob who just stumbled into an airplane for a few hours.

    Out of curiosity, have you obtained this rating yourself?

    I'm painting him as someone with out the expertise to accomplish what was observed on 9/11. Veteran 737 pilots could only match this feat at speeds of 100-150 knots (ie: landing speed) in simulation. Al-Sheshhi had 2 days of 727 simulator training at a sketchy school, and a commercial pilot airplane license, and accomplished the WTC1 strike in a real plane (and a 767) at 447 knots near sea level.

    Just to clarify that's 514mph or 827kph. At sea level.

    EgyptAir 990 broke up in the air over the Atlantic after the co-pilot took it into a power dive. It exceeded Mach 0.86 for approx. 30s and broke up in the air, causing 2 distinct debris fields. See http://www.ntsb.gov/doclib/reports/2002/AAB0201.pdf

    Also to clarify, atmospheric density, like water pressure, is much higher at low altitudes. Therefore it is easier to reach higher speeds at higher altitudes because of lower air friction. That video is very fascinating.
