9/11, 2008: Episode 5: Early to Rise

Franklin Pham is already on a bus, heading to school at San Jose State University. The time is 5:40 AM Pacific.

NORAD was notified by the FAA something was amiss with American Airlines Flight 11. Nasty and Duff of the 102nd Air Fighter Wing are alerted and asked to scramble to intercept United Flight 175.

Meanwhile, Bush’s motorcade was en route to the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota.

As he boarded his bus, over the mobile phone Franklin was glad someone else was here to go through the same process as he was facing. He kept cursing the box cutters. All it took was simple box cutters to accomplish all this. Yet he wants to use simple tools (possibly cameras) to start putting things back to right.

Me? I want to get a shower. Yet even as I typed this, the clock moved through 5:46:26 AM (8:476:26 AM Eastern), marking the precise moment of impact of American Airlines Flight 11 with the north side of 1 World Trade Center.
