12. Why didn't the original pilots flip the plane
and bust the hijackers' moves?

And why are BOTH United Airways planes STILL registered by the FAA
just like every other US plane
that takes off and lands at your local airport?

And WHAT were those passengers planning to do
once they got the hijackers out of the cockpit?
