Product Description

Product Description


This is the second edition of Planes without Passengers: the Faked Hijackings of 9/11. It is written by one of the leading researchers on the issue of planes and passengers, Dean T. Hartwell. This edition confirms the conclusion of the first book that no hijackings took place that day and puts together a more complete theory: Only two planes of the four planes alleged to be connected with the 9/11 plot actually flew on that day. And the passengers were not people who paid a ticket to go from one place to another. They were instead agents connected to the plot who were chosen to help cover up the crime.

This theory is based primarily upon two facts: (1) the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), which maintains information on all commercial flights in the United States, in its original form stated clearly that while United 175 and United 93 were scheduled and flew, American 11 and American 77 did not and (2) ACARS, a system much like electronic mail and GPS, shows that United 175 and United 93 were flying over the Midwestern part of the United States long after their supposed "crashes" on the east coast.

Agents pretending to be passengers were seen at the Cleveland Hopkins Airport late that morning. They walked toward A NASA building to make calls to the media to straighten out an impression many had that the Internet reported that United 93 had landed in Cleveland. History should not be a lie agreed upon by the media, the politicians and others of influence. History must give us the most likely events based on the available information. This book aims to be a part of history we may not want to believe, but we should believe because it weighs the facts in an objective manner.

2.0 out of 5 stars 9/11 5 Nov 2013
By Wilma
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed with this book. I found it boring, badly written and gave 'proof' of things that just did not 'gel'.
I have read a couple of other books about 9/11 which were a lot better than this one. I would say to avoid this book, as you will just be wasting your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gives Conspiracy theories a bad name. 4 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are a lot of real mysteries about 911: why were there so few passengers on the planes, still no CCTV footage of the Pentagon etc but this is a conglomoration of nonsense. The author and the "experts" that he names should be ashamed of their shoddy research. Don't buy this.

1.0 out of 5 stars An hour of my life i am never going to get back 3 July 2014
By Aaron
Oh dear. This must be self published. Dont be fooled by the fact tht this appears to be a proper book i.e. it has a cover, page numbers etc. it is a collection of quirky ramblings and fantasy. At one point, Dean actually concedes that he is putting forward 'fictional' scenarios about how people were 'persuaded' to take part in "fake" flights......(inlcuding the idea that someone could have been approched on a bus and told that their love affair would be disclosed unless they took part......err, ??!). On a positive note, it made me realise that i must be more sane than i thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tackling difficult aspects of 9/11 research 20 Sep 2012
By John Friend - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Dean Hartwell's 2nd edition of Planes Without Passengers: The Faked Hijackings of 9/11 deals with some of the most controversial and complex aspects of 9/11 research. Regrettably, many of the aspects of 9/11 research Dean pursues in his latest book are ignored, misunderstood, dismissed, or hastily rejected, even (or, perhaps, especially) by those in the so-called "9/11 Truth Movement". Nevertheless, any serious 9/11 investigator will want to take what Dean has to offer in Planes Without Passengers seriously, and consider the implications of his well-established research.

Dean tackles the subject of "phantom flights" and their alleged passengers, the mislabeled theory of "no planes", faked or otherwise fabricated "hijackings", and other key details of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory in depth throughout the book, offering well-founded arguments and facts which totally disprove virtually every aspect of the official government conspiracy theory explaining what happened on 9/11.

Before going any further, let's clear something up here: the "no planes" theory of 9/11 can be summarized as follows, which I think Dean would most assuredly agree with: there were no large commercial Boeing 757 or 767s involved at any of the alleged crash sites on 9/11. Or, to be more precise, the "hijacked" commercial airliners allegedly involved on 9/11 were simply fabricated cover stories or decoys for what really happened that day. Flights 11, 77, 175, and 93, the official flights alleged by the government and media to have been hijacked and used as weapons on 9/11, were not hijacked and did not crash anywhere on 9/11.

Consider the following facts, which Dean highlights quite succinctly in his book: American Airlines Flights 11 and 77 were never even officially scheduled to fly on 9/11 according to the government's own records. Additionally, United Airlines Flights 93 and 175 were not de-registered as active commercial airliners until September 28, 2005 - a full 4 years after they allegedly crashed and were destroyed on 9/11. (See 9/11: Planes/No Planes and "Video Fakery")

So the question then becomes: how can flights that were never even scheduled have crashed on 9/11? And, how can flights that were in the air 4 years after 9/11 have crashed that day?

Dean also cites well-known 9/11 researchers David Ray Griffin and A.K. Dewdney as key sources refuting the alleged phone calls made by passengers on the "hijacked" flights. Griffin and Dewdney have shown that the phone calls alleged to have been made on 9/11 were not even possible given the technology of the time. Some have suggested that voice-morphing technology was involved in the fabrication of the phone calls made on 9/11, technology which is known to be in existence, even prior to 9/11. However it was done, the alleged phone calls were a key aspect of the official conspiracy theory, and were used to sell the idea to the public that "Muslim extremists" really did hijack commercial airliners on 9/11. In reality, the phone calls were faked, and have been used as a major PSYOP on the American and world public in order to perpetuate the "hijacker" and "innocent American passengers died on board the airliners" myths.

Furthermore, Elias Davidsson has shown that the United States government has never been able to prove that any "Muslim extremists" hijacked any airliners on 9/11, a subject discussed by Dean in the book. The alleged flight manifests are either fraudulent or have serious problems, bringing their legitimacy into question, and there has been no video evidence produced by the government of "Arab Muslim terrorists" boarding any of the flights at any of the airports on the morning of 9/11, key facts Dean brings to light. Incredibly, none of pilots of the allegedly "hijacked" airliners that day entered in the hijack code to notify ground control operators, and no fighter jets were scrambled to intercept these flights (probably because there were no hijackings and there were no flights).

Dean also addresses the eye witness testimony of travelers at the various airports alleged to have been involved with the flights on 9/11, especially the travelers at the Cleveland airport, where multiple flights landed on 9/11, including flights associated with the official conspiracy theory, namely Flight 175 (or an aircraft thought to have been Flight 175). Figuring out exactly which flights landed where, what flights were even in the air, and other aspects relating to the flights on 9/11 are extremely complex details of 9/11 research, and Dean does a good job of trying to sort this all out the best he can given the available evidence. In my opinion, we will likely never know what exactly happened with the flights said to have been involved on 9/11, if there even were any (which I now doubt), but it's important for knowledgeable individuals like Dean to investigate these matters honestly and bring important facts to light.

Perhaps the most controversial topic Dean covers is the alleged passengers said to have been on the official flights on 9/11. He makes a good case that many, if not all, of the alleged "passengers" were either government-insiders involved in the conspiracy, or were manufactured individuals sold to the public as "victims", similar to what was detailed in the Operation Northwoods document. (See 9/11: trauma-based mind control on a societal scale)

Planes Without Passengers: The Faked Hijackings of 9/11 is an extremely important book for honest researchers of the events of 9/11 to pursue. I highly recommend it, and believe Dean has done a major service to those of us seriously interested in figuring out exactly what happened on 9/11.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brave analysis of the evidence re the 9/11 planes 24 Jan 2013
By DC gal - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Author makes a convincing case, based on data from the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics, that 2 of the 4 planes were not scheduled to fly that day, nor did they ever take off. On the down side, the book is disorganized and poorly edited. However it still gets 5 stars from me because it is an aspect of 9/11 that is long overdue for some attention, as it demonstrates how deep the rabbit hole goes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Offers motivation for further research and study 31 Aug 2013
By Trudie Barreras - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having recently revisited David Ray Griffin's deeply-probing studies of the flaws of the "official story" of the events of 9/11 (see reviews I posted on 7/16/2013 and 8/10/2013 for "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11" and "9/11 Ten Years Later"), I had one really deep concern, which Griffin did not address specifically. Given that the Twin Towers and WTC 7 collapses were almost unequivocally caused by demolition implosions that had been previously set up in a clandestine fashion, ready to be activated as soon as the well-orchestrated plane crashes occurred to provide the opportunity to "blame" Al Qaeda, none-the-less how were those crashes arranged? I purchased Hartwell's book in the hope that it might shed some light on this question.

Previous reviewers have complained that Hartwell's analysis is confusing, and presented in a way that tends to detract from its adequacy. At least one comment I read disliked the "large type" (something I actually found very helpful). The other issue, of course, is that references are exclusively to Internet citations, some of which (no surprise) are no longer accessible. The fact is, of course, that the "official" obfuscation of the events surrounding 9/11 is the source of ALL the confusion. Hartwell and others who have been trying to dig through the muck have indeed been faced with a Herculean task.

In a nutshell, Hartwell proposes a number of hypotheses that support the idea that although flights did indeed take off from Logan and Newark airports with something in the neighborhood of 200 passengers aboard, these were NOT the planes that eventually crashed into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, or Shanksville, PA field. He reiterates Griffin's discussion about the patently "faked" phone calls from various flights to family members and/or airline officials, and tries to develop a timeline of the actual whereabouts of the alleged UA flights 175 and 93 AFTER the times of the crashes reported by the official account. He suggests that the passengers on those flights were re-routed to Cleveland, where several eye witness reports place 200 unaccounted-for passengers in the hours following the supposed crashes.

Hartwell suggests a number of alternative ideas as to what might have been the eventual disposition of those people - including the possibility that they were executed in some other way, after perhaps their DNA was harvested to "plant" for subsequent alleged forensic examination of remains from the crashes, or perhaps that they were given new identities in the Witness Protection Program. He is careful to reiterate that it is not possible to choose the most plausible hypothesis, given the dearth of accessible background information that the authorities have so far been willing to make public. However, his account, brief and lacking in detail as it may be, is definitely valuable for keeping the questions alive, and challenging those who are prepared to study this issue without knee-jerk acceptance of the "Official Party Line" to come up with their own ideas about further research.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read book for those seeking "9/11 truth"! 8 Nov 2012
By Thomas C. Petrie - Published on
After reading 9/11 books by Bollyn, Hendries, Griffin, Barrett and others, I thought I knew a lot, but Hartwell's book filled in some missing gaps.

In addition to amazing research, the book is also in large print and easy to read. To me, it's a must read for anyone wanting to learn more about what happened on this sad day, over 11 years ago. As with other 9/11 books, you don't read this to learn "who, what and why," but how--for yet another several reasons--the official story is nonsense. Total nonsense. You read this book for the confidence that tells you, "You're NOT crazy," other smart people know that the official story is not and cannot be...true. You read it to be amongst the nearly fifty percent of Americans that are now--finally, questioning the official story. And, you read Hartwell's book to know that even the "craziest" ideas of all, may, after all, be true! Knowing the truth on any subject is not enough. You must REALLY know that you're "right" and Hartwell helps you reach this more advanced stage in your search for 9/11 truth. I still think one should read one of David Ray Griffin's books (e.g., "9/11 Commission Report, Omissions and Distortions" or "The New Pearl Harbor") first and then tackle Hartwell's outstanding book. This is not a book for "beginners" in the 9/11 truth movement, but it is excellent for anyone with a basic understanding of the "real story" behind this terrible event eleven years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars No evidence of Passenger planes. 30 Jan 2013
By Donald H. McKnight - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The evidence cannot prove that passenger planes hit the WTC's.
I watched 911 all day on that day from beginning until WTC 7 came down. I saw no planes until they videotaped them in. I am a retired Computer Science Professor and airplanes just cannot crash into a building and disapear into it.

The buildings were built to withstand a 707 plane hitting which was the airliner at the time.
