“Hello, my name is Marcel Bernard and I'm the chief flight instructor here at Freeway. Hani Hanjour, well basically what happened with him is... He showed at the airport and wanted to get checked out in the aircraft you see, he was already certified, he didn't come to us for flight training.
He already earned it, it was private, instrument, commercial, at a school in Arizona. I don't remember the name of the school. He already had certificates in hand and we sometimes occasionally have pilots who come to us that don't want flight training, but just want to rent our aircraft.
This was the case of Hani, he wanted to get checked-out, as we call it, to rent our aircraft. And our insurance requires that he flies with one of our instructors to be found competent to rent. And that was the process that he was going through. And consensus was, he was very quiet, average, or below average piloting skills, English was very poor. So, that's about the best description I can get, give you for his demeanor. At that time very uneventful from my perspective”.

Freeway Airport evaluated suspected hijacker Hani Hanjour when he attempted to rent a plane. He took three flights with the instructors in the second week of August, but flew so poorly he was rejected for the rental, said Marcel Bernard, chief flight instructor at Freeway.
The standard evaluation consists of one- to one-and-a-half-hour flights east over the Chesapeake Bay area. Hanjour paid $400 cash and provided a valid pilot's license from Arizona, Bernard said. He failed because he showed problems landing the airplane, and the flight instructor had to help him, Bernard said.
But Hanjour's problems were nothing unusual, Bernard said. "At the time, he didn't raise any red flags," he said. "He never did get angry or make any unusual statements."
MARCEL BERNARD, FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR:
“We believe that even though he didn't necessarily have experience in jets that once the airplane was airborne that he could have easily pointed it in any direction he wanted to and crash it into a building or whatever. It would be a real feasibility, a real possibility”.
At Freeway Airport in Bowie, Md., 20 miles west of Washington, flight instructor Sheri Baxter instantly recognized the name of alleged hijacker Hani Hanjour when the FBI released a list of 19 suspects in the four hijackings. Hanjour, the only suspect on Flight 77 the FBI listed as a pilot, had come to the airport one month earlier seeking to rent a small plane.
However, when Baxter and fellow instructor Ben Conner took the slender, soft-spoken Hanjour on three test runs during the second week of August, they found he had trouble controlling and landing the single-engine Cessna 172. Even though Hanjour showed a federal pilot's license and a log book cataloging 600 hours of flying experience, chief flight instructor Marcel Bernard declined to rent him a plane without more lessons.
Despite Hanjour's poor reviews, he did have some ability as a pilot, said Bernard of Freeway Airport. "There's no doubt in my mind that once that [hijacked jet] got going, he could have pointed that plane at a building and hit it," he said.

Eh, sì. Ho fatto un poderoso copia e incolla. Ma se dopo tutto questo tempo Redazione non si è ancora accorto che Hanjour aveva una licena valida e avrebbe potuto portare un jet a schiantarsi, nonostante fosse un pilota molto scarso, allora si capisce come mai ad Aprile 2007 faccia vedere un filmato in cui si cerca DI NUOVO di convincere la gente che il foro al Pentagono fosse troppo piccolo...
Persino Pier ne aveva parlato, e nel 2006, diamine!
Senza offesa, ma chi è che è rimasto indietro?
E ti sei dimenticato di parlare di tutte le altre idiozie di cui il filmato "last word" visto parla a sproposito.
Non cercare di difendere a tutti i costi qualunque cosa cerchi di sostenere le ipotesi di complotto. Sostieni le ipotesi più serie e fai ricerca senza buttare via il tuo tempo con delle robe del genere. Altrimenti disperderai energie per nulla.
