Sharon Majeski (ZNY): Right now he’s primary only.
Shelley Watson (NEADS): You have no mode 3 or anything?
Majeski: Um, I’m not …
Watson: Or a location?
Majeski: Not showing anything no.

Joe McCain (NEADS): Northeast Air Defense Sector, Sgt. McCain.
Colin Scoggins (ZBW): Yes, Colin Scoggins, Boston Center. How are you doing?
McCain: Doing just fine.
Scoggins: Are you all working trying to get someone up …?
McCain: Yes, we are.
Scoggins: By any chance can you give me an altitude on him. Do you have an altitude …?
McCain: Last was 29,000.
Scoggins: OK, I didn’t know if your radar could actually pick up a correct altitude just so we could kind of nail it down maybe.
McCain: We haven’t even found the track yet.
Scoggins: Oh, you haven’t found the track. Hold on one second. [To ZBW tracker:] Can you give me range bearing off of the nearest NAVAID? [Back to McCain:] It’s primary only but I’ll get you – I’ll get you a [inaudible] and you’ll be able to find him.
McCain: Is there any way you can –
Scoggins: 15 miles east of Kennedy.
McCain: 15 miles east of Kennedy.

Joe McCain (NEADS): We’re picking up a search track – let me give you a bearing right here. I got it 8 miles East, northeast of Kennedy on search only.
Scoggins: Eight miles East northeast from Kennedy. Eight miles northeast East. We have [inaudible] [To ZBW tracker:] Is that about right? [Back to McCain:] That’s about right. Do you have an altitude on that?
McCain: No, I don’t.
Scoggins: You don’t. When you get an altitude can you call us here at the Center?
McCain: I will do my best.
Scoggins: And we can pass that on to New York, our DSN here is 11635.
McCain: We’re losing primary on him now.

Nasypany: We are getting ready to do that right now.
CONR: Great.
Nasypany: We’re getting ready to do it.
CONR: Yeah, I understand.
Nasypany: We just did a 25 mile track area, track production area, where we’re just beating that whole area up.
CONR: I can be looking forward to it on our screen momentarily?
Nasypany: It’s in and out and in and out, so we can’t give a good warm feely on that.
CONR: Right. Copy that, sir. Thanks a lot, appreciate it.

Sharon Majeski (ZNY): Actually, I’m showing they’re tracking coast right now, so I don’t –
Rountree: Tracking coast what does that mean – is he northbound?

Shelley Watson (NEADS): New York (inaudible), Huntress ID.
Maureen Dooley (NEADS): See if they lost altitude on that plane altogether.
Sharon Majeski (ZNY): New York.
Watson: Yes, ma’am. Did you just hear the information regarding the World Trade Center?
Majeski: No.
Watson: – being hit by an aircraft?
Majeski: I’m sorry?
Watson: Being hit by an aircraft?
Majeski: You’re kidding.
Watson: It’s on the world news.
Stacia Rountree (NEADS): Ask them if they still have altitude.
Watson: Do you still have altitude on that aircraft that you have –
Majeski: No. Like – like I said, I’m – I don’t work a radar here.

Jeffrey Richmond (NEADS): Turn on your NAVAID.
TT: Alright, got it. So, I’m just going to search south of JFK then.
Richmond: Yeah, we’re looking around JFK now, alright?
TT: Alright, straight search.
Richmond: They’re telling that he’s 20 miles south of JFK. Could be that he’s on approach and we can’t see him now, which is a very good possibility.

DRM1 DAT2 Channel 4 ID Op

Maureen Dooley (NEADS): She doesn’t have – we need to find out who’s tracking this guy on their scope in the New York Center –
Shelley Watson (NEADS): Is there anybody tracking
Dooley: – (inaudible) and see if he still has an altitude. If he doesn’t have an —
ZNY (Jack Jackson?): Hello?
Dooley: – altitude, then they’re possibly –
Watson: New York Denter, Huntress ID.
Dooley: – the same aircraft. Did we get a tail number on that?
Watson: Is anyone tracking the hijacked American 11?
ZNY: I’m sorry. Start over again. What about American 11?
Watson: The hijacked aircraft, American 11, is anyone tracking, from New York Center, that aircraft?
ZNY: We had a primary target on him. We are trying to follow him as best we can. He is not squawking a beacon code whatsoever.
Dooley: Can you still see primary?
Watson: Can you still see primary?
ZNY: No, I do not see a primary target at this moment; however, he’s not in my airspace. So –
Watson: Okay. I just wanted to give you a heads-up, New York. I don’t know if you know, but the world Trade Center’s just been hit by an aircraft.
Dooley: They’ve lost primary on this guy.

08:53:25-08:53:59 EDT [24:10-24:44] One more target located by TTs
DRM1 DAT2 Channel 15 AST Op

Jeffrey Richmond (NEADS): So just find me search targets, don’t be, don’t worry about airliners that we know that are cruising it.
TT: Um, there’s a Bravo 214, straight search.
Richmond: OK. I got Bravo 214, south.
TT: Looks like the best possibility. Started squawking now. Now he’s squawking 2113.
Richmond: That was a search target, but now he’s got a beacon to it?
TT: Alright.
Richmond: OK.

DRM1 DAT2 Channel 15 AST Op

Jeffrey Richmond (NEADS): What’s wrong with our, our – those numbers should be right. There’s a problem with the FAA numbers then. That’s what I’m saying. Those are the new numbers, those are the numbers that were given to us, 80-7-06.

08:54:45-08:54:54 EDT [24:15-24:24] PANTA flights get redirected; 20 miles south of JFK FRD repeated

Joe McCain (NEADS): I’m sorry, say that again.
Kelly: 4040 North West 74.
McCain: And 74 West. And that is the location of the Main 85?

08:56:02-08:56:20 EDT [25:42-26:00] ZBW repeats the information about the loss of AA 11
DRM1 DAT2 Channel 7 ID2 OP

Maureen Dooley (NEADS): Are you – are – can you say – is anyone up there tracking primary on this guy’s (inaudible)?
Colin Scoggins (ZBW): No. We had – the last that we had was about 15 miles east of JFK, or eight miles east of JFK was our last primary hit. He did slow down in speed, the primary that we had, it slowed down below – down to 300 knots.
Dooley: OK.
Scoggins: But that was the last thing we had on him.
Dooley: Okay.
Scoggins: And –
Dooley: And then you lost him.
Scoggins: Yeah, and then we lost him.

No verifiable tracking attempts after that.
