22. The transponder
Around 10:00 defintitly while the passenger's counterattack was underway what are the hijackers supposed to have done?!:
they switched the transponder on again.

"Ms. TAYLOR: Yeah. And then the transponder came back on. We got two hits off the transponder. That's something we've always wanted to know. Why did the transponder come back on?"
(NBC, 9/11/02)

A bit strange, isn't it. While Jarrah was doing violent movements with the plane, the hijackers were panicking they had nothing more urgent to do then switching on the transponder....

Anybody any idea how this could be explained besides the recurring motive of the hijackers simply being strange .....?
