42. An ex-military friend and I were on the phone together that morning
and we were saying the same thing. He knew exactly where each air base was in relation to where the attacks were happening, so he was stunned that the F-15s hadn't been sent up.

We also talked to a friend of his hours later whose brother had been a Steward on a plane that had been right behind one of the hijack aircraft on the tarmac that morning. He said that the control tower knew the plane was hijacked while it was ON THE GROUND, and yet nothing was being done (it sat waiting for takeoff for quite some time. Normally the captain of the steward's plane chatted with the captain of the hijacked plane before takeoff, but that morning he couldn't reach him and became alarmed). The hijacked plane veered wildly off course after it reached altitude. This was one of the planes that struck the WTC.
