24. Precising the position of the plane from northwest
All the witnesses that point out the position of the plane they saw agree in their estimation that the plane flew over their heads. Therefore the approximate flight path shown in the original article is highly likely to be true:

"I actually thought it was going to hit a house here in town," said Peterson. It blew out windows of a nearby farmhouse when it crashed.
As it went over started going end over end, Peterson said, and then dropped below a tree line and exploded. Peterson saw a flash and then a mushroom cloud of smoke.

He (Joe Wilt) heard from a relative who worked at a small business less than one mile to the west that the plane had passed low overhead, heading southeast before crashing.
(Boston Globe, 9/12/01)

Linda Shepley, 47, of Stoystown, Pa., said she saw the plane fly over her back yard as she hung laundry on her clothesline. "I could see there was no landing gear down," she said.

(Nevin Lambert) saw the jetliner fly overhead , banking hard to the right. It was only one or two hundred feet off the ground as it crested a hill to the southeast.
I saw the top of the plane, not the bottom.

(Jere Longman: Among the Heroes, 295)

As already shown in the post above all witnesses in the east point out that the plane was flying overhead, too.
Therefore also the approximate flight path in the original article is highly likely to be correct.
