Somerset County is between Pittsburgh and Washington, DC. If you have ever driven on the PA Turnpike, that is where the 1-1/2 mile Allegheny Mountain Tunnel is located.

FOX reporting that this may be the hijacked plane reported coming toward Washington from the south.

Perhaps a brave pilot crashed it deliberately rather than give into the terrorists.

If the plane wasn't shot down, then there were probably some true American heros that averted a further disaster.

Yes, please keep us advised. Family resides in Myersdale, PA, rural area of Somerset.

Praying hard for our country here in California.

One thing I don't understand: The "powers that be" have time to monitor every word that comes across the web here on Freerepublic but they had not a clue that something as organized as this terrorist attack on the United States was in the works?

According to local radio in Dallas, A/P is CONFIRMING a report of plane crash in Pennsylvania.

Careful folks - lots of false reports coming out of the media! ! !

Indian Lake Airport ... a small airport is located near the intersection of 30/160 in the area of the crash. More later.

More likely to be Air National Guard. AFAIK, they still keep birds on alert. USAF would take longer to get birds ready. DC Air Guard IIRC F-16s. Top of Pentagon caves in, they report on ABC as I type. Burning like a mother. Completely caved in around center court, where A/C hit. This event will change our country forever, and quite likely not for the good. Washington DC military on Threatcon Delta, highest level. Rest of US Military on Threatcon Charlie.

I'm wondering how in the heck they got the planes to crash into the WTC? They had to have dispatched the crew and taken over control to get that to happen.

IF it was a 747 then it was most likely from NYC JFK. 747s are usually for international flights and JFK is an international airport. JFK to CHI would be a likely route for a United or American aircraft as they have hubs in CHI. Pittsburg is a hub for US Air, but they have no 747s.

Don't be so sure. You may have missed the posts from yesterday talking about the ISP's servicing the muslim community that were seized and searched.

You know, this really bugs me. The "rest of the military" on Threatcon Charlie... but they are all scattered all over the globe, when the biggest threat is right here at home. We really *NEED* to pull out of some of those "peacekeeping" missions and let them come home and live in the country they are sworn to protect.

Local report reconfirms it was a 747 and told to putdown or be shot down. Local news reports another flight from Pittsburgh International was hijacked and is circling Dulles at this time. ... Local scanner reports from 747 indicate there are fatalities. Scanner reports request all air traffic to land in the vicinity east and southeast of PGH. More later. Waiting for hospital reports from wife.

Reports are saying we were warned at least a week ago.

Offer a prayer for the piolet that had to pull the trigger on the loaded airliner. You just know that was a tough order to follow and will weigh heavily for the rest of his life.

FWIW, my mother-in-law in St. Petersburg, Russia, just called. She says the Russian media is reporting that this plane was headed toward a nuclear power plant and was shot down by US military jet.

Speculation: That Egypt Air plane that went down a few years ago when "the pilot committed suicide" was probably a test run for this attack.

May the spirit of true American heroism UAL 93’s passengers exhibited still exist in us today while we are in a life and death struggle to save this blessed Republic from the enemies within.

God Bless the passengers and crew of UAL 93.
