9/11 Commission: How the hijacks unfolded

Hijackers: Their leader has been identified by the FBI as Mohammad Atta, who had a United Arab Emirates passport and underwent flight training with a number of the suspected hijackers. His suitcase, found at Logan airport, contained a video on flying airliners, a fuel consumption calculator and a copy of the Koran. Other suspected hijackers have been named as: Waleed al-Shehri, and Wail al-Shehri, possibly brothers; Abdulaziz al-Omari; and Satam al-Suqami. The FBI is investigating whether the hijackers could have been using false identification.

On board: When the hijackers took over the aircraft and attempted to communicate with passengers, air traffic controllers overheard what they said. At 08:24 the following transmission came from the plane: "We have some planes. Just stay quiet, and you’ll be OK. We are returning to the airport.” Seconds later another transmission said: “Nobody move. Everything will be OK. If you try to make any moves, you’ll endanger yourself and the aeroplane. Just stay quiet.”
