Flight Attendant From 9/11: Our Plane Was Supposed To Be 5th Plane In Attack

 A flight attendant waiting to take off on the fateful day of 9/11/2001 believes her aircraft was intended to be used as the fifth plane in the infamous terrorist attack which murdered nearly 3,000 Americans — and the captain of the plane thinks she may be correct.

The captain and flight attendant recalled their memories of the terrible day in the TMZ documentary “TMZ Investigates 9/11: the Fifth Plane.”

Flight attendant Sandy Thorngren, who was aboard United 23 waiting on JFK airport’s tarmac on the morning of 9/11, said she saw six suspicious people on the plane, which was supposed to take off at 9:00 a.m. but returned to the gate after the second tower of the World Trade Center was struck at 9:03 a.m.

“I definitely think Flight 23 was the fifth plane,” Thorngren stated.

“The day after, we were all called by the FBI telling us that they needed to interview us regarding the incident of what had happened on the airplane,” Thorngren continued. “They came to our hotel rooms and individually talked to us. I did tell them that I felt there were some suspicious people on the airplane. And I pointed out exactly the four people in first class and two gentlemen in business. And the one that had the t-shirt on that had uncontrollable perspiration.”

“They wanted to take us to show us a line-up of people at the Port Authority,” she recalled. ­“They got us all in a van, a windowless van. I felt like we were getting snuck into this van. And driven over to the Port Authority offices where everyone — I mean, gates were locked and guarded with armored military that had machine guns, or whatever rifles they were using. We were escorted to this one room with those double windows where you could see in but not out. And they asked us if we could identify any of the people that were behind that window.”

The captain of United 23, Tom Mannello, contended there was a “good chance” someone was attempting to use his plane as part of the 9/11 attack. “The chief pilot reported to me that they had found two box cutters in the seat pockets in first class in the plane next to it, which had a tail number one digit off,” he stated.

“If somebody was on the ground cooperating with them, they just simply made a mistake and put the box cutters on the wrong airplane,” he continued. “You have people that clean the airplane, people that load food on the airplane, that have access to the airplane.”

“If somebody was in cooperation with the group they could have been put there,” he surmised. “It wouldn’t be the hardest thing in the world to get on an airplane like that. It’s the one thing that makes me think that there’s a good chance that somebody was plotting to try to use our airplane as a weapon of mass destruction.”

Four planes that were hijacked by Islamic terrorists attacked the United States on 9/11. American Airlines Flight 11 struck its target first after taking off from Boston toward Los Angeles. Five hijackers commandeered the plane to launch it toward the World Trade Center’s North Tower, which it hit at 8:46 a.m.

The second plane to strike its target was United Airlines Flight 175, which also took off from Boston with five hijackers aboard and was originally headed to Los Angeles; it crashed into the WTC’s South Tower at 9:03 a.m.

American Airlines Flight 77 took off from Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., toward Los Angeles with five hijackers aboard; it struck the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m.

The fourth plane, United Flight 93 took off from Newark, New Jersey, headed for San Francisco, with four hijackers onboard, allegedly headed for the White House or the Capitol, but heroic passengers fought the hijackers and the plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in an empty field.
