Various 9/11 Related Recordings
« on: September 08, 2011, 03:59:53 PM »
Came across this linked on another forum approaching the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
It's a series of recordings from a mixture of sources. Many are ATC, some are phone conversations. All are listed in chronological order and can be played start to finish, with full transcripts.

Never forget those who perished at the hands of terrorists.

"MAY.....DAY" from UAL93 was disturbing.  Very disturbing.  I can't imagine the struggle that was happening in the cockpit.

Not surprising the ATC guys seemed to have it together.  They are trained to handle stressful situations and employ concise telecommunications.

I was shocked how bad the NORAD NEADS came across, particularly the ID Techs.  Referring to a real world hijacking as "cool" and taking 15 words to get across information that should take 3 words.  I'm not criticizing the individuals because it was a stressful situation for anyone to handle, but I am critical of their training at the time.  I would have thought they would be better prepared.  Hopefully they are now.

I thought the same thing. I will give them this, though: It appears that there was a huge emphasis on drills and not enough emphasis on distinguishing between a drill and a real-world scenario. Especially when one of the ID Techs said, "I've never seen so many real world problems like this in a drill before," and when three ID Techs said "Is this a drill?" it is very clear that they didn't know how to distinguish between a drill and the real world. When the lady said "cool" to the idea of a hijacking, she clearly didn't know the gravity of the situation.
