31. The article is mistaken about the closing of the airspace.
The FAA closed the national airspace on 9/11 and 9/12. On 9/13, they began allowing flights.

The flight referenced in the article took place on the afternoon of 9/13, AFTER the FAA had reopened the airspace.

That aside, the airspaced was never closed to U.S. government and military aircraft. Since the U.S. government chartered this flight, it could have taken off on the 11th or 12th had they wanted it to.

No breaking of the rules...

...and Snopes' listing is correct.
