Welcome to Brad's 911 Investigation, Pentagon WTC Photo and Video Analysis !
(This is the old "Batcave911" which is back here) I have also created a nicer looking mini site at 911.brad.com)
You are in the right place, this is the updated site with full links.
A note about conspiracy theories...
This site is not intended to find out "who dunnit" but to bring light to what appears to be inconsistencies that our Government has told us
vs. the pictures, witness testimonies and other evidence, some of which points in a different direction.
If you have a hard time believing "Conspiracy Theories"
Or think that everyone who thinks that no Boeing hit the Pentagon also believes in Aliens, then read this...
Gerard Holmgren Debunking Conspiracy Theorists
There were many strange events around the day of 911, and many strange photos following.
I will attempt to bring these discrepancies to light. This may bring about more questions than answers, but in any investigation it is good to have all of the evidence at hand.
The page is meant for the reader to come to their own conclusion, though I may make comments, these are just some ideas I believe should be investigated more in depth by our own Government.
This page is meant to work in concert with other pages to share photos and ideas. If you have any links you would like me to add to these pages, please feel free to email me.
I link to MANY sites as i feel the reader should have the most information possible.
In speaking with many whom were wondering about the exact happenings on Sept 11th,
many emails were being passed around with pictures. Many of these photos were fuzzy and dark.
Instead of using emails to send the pics back, I decided that it would be easier to put them on a web page.
I used ACDsee and Photoshop to change the size, brighness and contrast levels so they could be viewed easier
and put them on the web for easy access. Originally, the page was never intended for the general public,
but since the links were sent around the web, I created (this) index page.
Most of the pictures were sent to me via email, many were from the web as well.
I have tried to credit authors from where I have received them.
If anyone lays claim to a photo, or other material which is yours and would like me to credit you or take it down,
i will try to comply with any serious request.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
(also see bottom of page for diclaimer and TOS)
If you think there are some oddities surounding the day of Sept 11th, and that youv'e seen most of them, you have probabally just started. Read the next 10-12 articles, then review the airgames site and i think you will come to the conclusion that someones got some splainin to do !
NEW Did Flt 11, Flt 93 and Flt 175 'Survive'
Flight 11 was spotted on the radar screens at 8:48 by New York ARTCC controllers:
The New York Center controller and manager were unaware that American 11 had already crashed... (9/11 report, p.21
Flight 11 was reported at 9:21 by Washington ARTCC controllers as "heading towards Washington":
NEADS: Okay.American 11 is still in the air?
NEADS: On its way towards Washington
At 8:40 happened the last transmission from UA 175. It stated that they had heard a suspicious transmission (most likely from Flight 11). Minutes later it turned southwest without clearance from air traffic control. At 8:47 it's transponder code changed, and then changed again.
(Commission Report, p. 21)
Commission Report states:
9:20 UA headquarters aware that Flight 175 had crashed into WTC (p. 32)
Unfortunately this is simply not true. To put it mildly.
The first one to mention that Flight 175 crashed is NBC minutes before noon. (Until 11:30 they only had three confirmed flights that had been involved in 9/11).

"The Secret Hijacking
The Fifth Plane landed in Cleveland..." (Woody Box)
In the morning of September 11, Delta Flight 1989 made an emergency landing at Cleveland Airport. This is a well established fact. Less known to the public is that another airplane landed under similar circumstances about half an hour later, on a different runway.
The Cleveland Airport Mystery
The plane - Delta flight1989 - was not hijacked, and there was no bomb. However, a closer examination reveals a bunch of conflicting statements concerning Delta 1989
This article will prove that not one, but two planes made an emergency landing in Cleveland - in close succession
Michael Kane: "9/11 War Games - No Coincidence"
by Michael Kane -June 08
(special thanks to Barbara Honegger for her early work on this line of research)
"I have an on-the-record statement from someone in NORAD that on the day of 9/11 The Joint Chiefs of Staff (Richard B. Myers) and NORAD were conducting a joint, live-fly, hijack Field Training Exercise (FTX) which involved at least one (and almost certainly many more) aircraft under US control that was posing as a hijacked airliner". Mike Ruppert - June 5, 2004, editor of FTW www.fromthewilderness.com
Researchers Nico Haupt & Woody Box have done a detailed analysis
based entirely on mainstream accounts and eye witness statements showing
that, while the official account has Flight 11 being boarded at gate 26,
the flight actually took off from gate 32. However, no passengers
actually boarded at gate 32, instead boarding at gate 26...
Flight 93 files a new flight plan, but 2 sources give different times ?
one source says it was at 10:10, so i ask how do you file a new flight plan after the plane crashed?
Flight 93: Crash Time cannot be true
Air Traffic Control Center Ronkonkoma- Red Herring or Cover-up?
What does the FAA have to hide?

What gate did flight 11 take off from?There seems to be a BIG contraversy,
more like it took off from 2 gates (yes 2 flight 11's!!!)
Betty Ong call !!!
I cant believe i had not seen this before. In listening to the call with Nydia talking to the AA security officer (not the original Ong call, but the second recording), something did not sound right to me.The AA officer asks her about 2 passengers. At that point, she (Nydia) had not mentioned anything about 2 passengers ?? (many comments posted here)...
Security at Dulles AGAIN - AND- flight 91 and flight 93 !
18 (or more?) people were "NOT SUPPOSED TO FLT THAT DAY" on flight 93.
flight 91 was cancelled due to other problems, and many may have been transferred to flight 93.
So how many passengers bought tickets for flight 93 ahead of time? ANY?
Why were flights 11 and 77 not in the bts.gov database for Sept 11th?
What really happened to American Airlines Flights 11 and 77 on Sept 11, 2001?

Did some airports know the day before something was fishy?? it looks like 612UA had 2 hours missing from the flight the night before?
transcript of call from flight 11 with comments... (great thread)
Ongoing investigation into the flights:
Operation 9-11: Find the Rendezvous Points
Two planes had already hit the WTC by 9.03 and yet this plane was allowed to fly for another 42 minutes, off course towards Washington, untroubled by the world's most powerful air force. Only 10 miles from the Pentagon is Andrews Airbase, a huge installation which is repsonsible for air defence around the DC area, and maintains two squadrons of fighter jets on permanent standby for this very purpose, since the security of the White House, State dept, Capitol and the City of DC are also at stake. This was not an unforseen contingency.
On sept 11, they had nearly an hours warning of the Pentagon attack
New, flight explorer oddities... (still under construction)
What do we know about the flight maps we were shown from the 911 planes?
The maps and the flight transcripts do not match...
Plane swapping? remote control ? Not as crazy as it sounds !
Many people now considering the real possibillity that no-757 hit the Pentagon.
If this is true, then someone has been duped (besides the public), it is also then true that someone is covering up evidence.
If flight 77 did not hit the Pentagon, then where did it go? If the information from ATC, the FAA and other sources are wrong about this, then they could easily be wrong about the other 911 planes. If the transpoder code is off, and there is another plane close to the plane being tracked, they could appear as one blip according to the radar. One plane may have been a few thousand feet above or below the other, and as far as the controllers would know, it would be the same plane.
(thus a "plane swap").
The 911 planes just happen to cross eash others path that day. There were also several "war games" being played by our government. (just a coincidence!). One of those games included the "fake" hijacking of aircraft.
Minutes later, U175 turned Southwest without clearance from ATC.
Seconds after AA 11 impacted the tower, U175's transponder code changed, then changed again.
These changes were not noticed for several minuites however,
becuase the same controller was in charge of both flight 11 and 175
The estimated arrival times starting at 2:15pm then it changes SOUTH of Pitt, well after it was hijacked and a new flight plan was filed to 10:28
it stays around that time, until the last blip which indicates 9:34 as the ETA, BUT it crashed much later than that.
Why do the transcripts show a different time than the maps for the ETA and the destination Airport?
How could the ETA show 9:34 when it was well after that at the time of
the crash? Also, the map shows the plane going over 400mph at the time of the crash (93).
This is when eyewitneses said it had slowed down? Was it reporting a different plane? Perhaps a war games plane?
How hard would it be to turn off a transponder, and have a plane fly over another (hijacked plane) and confuse the radar?
Radar will see only 1 blip, if the planes are too close to each other !

Vanity Fair: Doubt on Cheney's shootdown authority
October 5, 2004 -- WASHINGTON -- Vice President Dick Cheney may not have had the proper authority to issue orders to shoot down commercial aircraft on Sept. 11, according to a new account of the deadly day...
UA's response on American Free Press
I was surprised to hear you say that any suggestion that it was not UAL Flight 175 that hit the South Tower was "offensive." I am also surprised that you are not interested in viewing the video images from "911: In Plane Site."
Pressing Question that could end all conspiracy theories (or prove them)
There were several calls that day reportedly from cell phones and seat back phones.
It is possible from these calls to determine the EXACT place each plane was at any given time. This could end several discrepancies as to what time flight 77 hit the Pentagon
(the time varies depending on what source you read).
It could give the EXACT path of all flights, as the transpoder codes were turned off, this has been somewhat of a grey area, especially for flights 93 and 77.
Most phones toiday are of the technology CDMA. In this technology the cell phone may "talk" to several gound stations (cell sites) at one time. Using triangulation, these calls can be pinpointed. With several calls happening at different times, this could provide very useful info.
It must be noted here, that the calls themselves are not recorded, but the time stamp, date, phone #, and electronic serial number (or ESN) of the phone is (for billing and other purposes).
This applies to CDMA phones (the most common in the US), but also applies to many other types. I do not know if the same applies to the seatback phones or not, but I would imagine that something similar is in place.
The calls information (for cell phones) are required by the FCC to be backed up, or reside in the "switch" at a local office for 3-5 years. (I forget the exact time, i believe the FCC may have changed it lately).
This could be a major breaking point in finding out what happened.
It would end discrepancies and theories such as plane swapping, remote control and the idea that some of the calls were faked or did not happen.
I urge that the info of these calls be released to the general public.
9/11 Cellphone Calls - an Overview
were the calls real?, and what plane did they really come from ?
Cleveland Smoking Gun Proves "Arab Hijacker" Calls
From United Airlines Flight 93 Were Faked
(old) technical engineering discussions about the possibilities of cell calls on 911...
other cell info...
In one of the phone calls allegedly made from AA 11, it was said that the crew locked themselves in the cockpit, and the hijackers attempted to lure them out by shooting and stabbing passengers. This is said to have gone on for 25 minutes. Why then, no distress code from AA 11 ? Furthermore, the timeline of the alleged phone call indicates that the plane had already turned off course before the hijackers got into the cockpit!
This is a mid-burn photo. The story goes ( yes it is a story) that the wings burned up on impact.
They should be seen burning right here, but guess what, no wings, no fuselage, NO PLANE!
The gas tanks were 90ft apart from each other, so there should be 2 explosions 90ft from each other,
not one central explosion we see here.
The damage to the right of this explosion was done only on the ground floor, but look what is in the way? A generator !
The wing could not have cleared that generator which was over 10ft high, and then damaged the FIRST floor and NOT the second.
No, the plane did NOT nose dive into it, it came in VERY paralell. It hit light poles hundereds of feet away.
No, the plane did NOT hit the ground AT ALL, there is no damage to the grass, or the cable reels which were right in the planes path.
There is a burned out generator just to the right of the collapsed wall.
How did the right wing of the plane do damage to the bottom floor, but not to the second or third floors?
The plane did not dive bomb into the pentagon, it hit several light poles hundereds of yards away.
Some have sid that the plane was blown to bits on impact...
Where are those bits?
This shows the columns bent OUTWARD. While true, they may be bent to the left, they still seem to bent out.
In the middle of this photo is a burned tree stump, the nose should have come directly into that tree.
To the left is the impact hole. So the cable reels should have been underneath the fuselage,
indicating that the bottom of the "plane" could not have been at ground level. Clearly the damage was at the ground floor.
The only way to explain this would be that the right wing was lower than the fuselage. BUT, if this were true,
the engine would have gouged into the earth, since the engine hangs lower than the wing.
This scenario also would have made the left wing higher, causing damage to the second and third floors to the left of the impact hole.
This was clearly NOT the case.

photos and graphics showing the "letter" piece of debris found on the Pentagon lawn.
The most convincing evidence in my mind that there was no Boeing that hit the Pentagon, is on this page. It shows several pics prior to, and just after the collapse of the wall. I can see no plane. Planes this size do not simply disappear. The official story from our Government says that the right wing hit above ground, higher than the left wing. If this were true, the main damage from the right wing should have been to the second story of the building. the pics tell a different story. The main damage to the right of the hole was at ground level and the main support columns which were damaged seem to be pushed OUT not in.
( does not support netscape )
Many of the photos on the web of the Pentagon are dark and blurry. I attempted to enhance some of the here.
An enhanced photo of the main explosion shows the Pentagon wall and a central explosion. Even in this enhanced view - mid explosion, one cannot see anything that resembles a plane. The enhanced views also show how small the hole was and the lack of damage to the wall before collapse.
The cable reels which were in front of the impact area, seemed not to have been damaged at all. If the plane came in at an angle, as most believe, these reels should have been demolished.
The impact on the building in pre-collapse photos show that the damage was done at ground level.
The bottom floor shows support structures that appear to be bulging outward instead of inward which they should . Something had to cause these support columns to bulge outward.
This page shows the exit holes at the Pentagon.
size and analysis of the exit hole here...
Large photo enhancements of the Tom Horan pics, and other similar pics, showing discrepancies of where the impact was, the immediate damage, timeline of particular damage, and an odd piece of debris.
After looking at thousnds of pictures over 2 years, I have become suspect of either image or video fakery, or both. Many of the pics and videos of the plane just before hitting the South tower just dont seem to add up. Keep in mind, that most of these were not taken at the same exact place or angle, and the page is not intended to be scientific proof of anything, but it still proves interesting. Perhaps there are a few altered photos out there?

The "POD" has been a BIG contraversy.
Many sites talk about it, but few have enhanced pics for the average reader to see.
On request, I obtained the best video I could and did a frame by frame analysis using filters and changing the contrast and gamma levels. The site is not intended to steer the reader, but to give the best stills of this video.
(some new pics, stills, and repeat pics as well, since the original POD site has bandwith problems)
(High quality enhanced stills)

This site goes into detail showing the difference in the paint job, which should have shown a bright white stripe down the middle of the bottom of this plane (for a standard 767UA plane). all of the pics that day seem to show something different.
(there is also a lot of great info about the Pentagon and the building collapses)

This page shows the damage stated by the report side by side with photos of the real damage.
Decide for yourself if it is accurate.
( does not support netscape )
The 2 videos show that there may have been an explosion several floors above the impact of the plane!
This has serious implications that either a missile struck, or a bomb went off.
The plane hit between the 94th and 98th floors according to the FEMA report. This explosion was between the 106th and 110th floors.
(There was a report and video showing that the bottom floors of the North tower (lobby area) was badly damaged. Windows were blown out. It has been commented that the fuel from the plane came down the elevator shafts and exploded on the bottom floor. The problem with this being that there is no 1 elevator shaft that went from the ground floor to the floors hit by the plane.
( does not support netscape )
This page shows stills from 2 videos. One shows the 2nd impact from a side view.
The wings should have sheared off since this plane came in at an angle, Tip to tip the wings would have spanned several floors and the continuous floor structure would have presented a great resistance to the wings staying intact with the fuselage. Since the gas tanks on a Boeing 767 are on the wings and about 90ft apart from each other, the main explosions should have stayed in the building and not exited the other side. The pics however shows a large explosion and fireball exiting the building.
There were also several large objects exiting the building, one in particular seemed to leave its own fire trail and exited with force. It may be possible it was an engine, but the close-ups indicate otherwise.
This page shows video stills of the 2nd plane exiting the building. A very large object, which at first appears to be the nose of the plane, seems to begin its exit then explode. If the nose of the plane and front part of the fuselage made it through the building without hitting any major support structures, elevator shafts, or going through the floors, then it simply should have exited and fell to the ground. This object seems to have created its own explosion on exit of the building.
WTC building 7, this page also shows projectiles from the 2nd impact of the WTC.
Several of the objects were seen moving toward building 7.

This page has some pics that have not been and also some oddities that I have found.

I am not big on UFO's but there was a report and video that there was a UFO filmed before Sept 11th.
This page shows how that was a complete hoax.
