27. Again-- this is an excellent post describing some of the inconsistencies
of the flight 93 phone calls. But there are actually even more inconsistencies than this!

Just one example -- at 9:45am, first class passenger Tom Burnett calls his wife a third time. According to Longman (page 111):
"The hijackers, Tom said, were talking about crashing the plane into the ground. 'We have to do something'"


First of all, no one else has said there was more than one hijacker guarding the passengers. Thus, how could Burnett hear them discussing this?

Second, why on earth would the hijackers be talking about putting the plane on the ground-- before the passenger revolt? This is clearly BEFORE the passenger revolt because Tom says: 'We have to do something'.

Can any one explain this????????????
