43. Home Run and Cyclops
As I know, Home Run was created to take control of a hijacked plane.
The hijackers are loosing the control of the plane. The controllers (NORAD?) can choose an airport for the landing(normally the next airport) and the plane is landing autonomous at this airport.(that means Home Run)

So I think the Flight Path Change Request never existed, the controllers placed the code DCA(Reagan Airport Washington) into the Home Run System. But they never planned to land the plane at DCA. It was just necessary to put a code into the system. Normally they had to put the Pittsburgh code into this system, if they really want to bring the plane down.
The coal mine was not in the Home Run-system(only airport codes), so they must activate the Cyclops-System too, to control the plane manually and bring it down to the coal mine-target.

I don`t have written the whole plan down, I just discussed it. You can ask John Doe.
