An FAA inspector’s recollections of 9/11

September 11, 2012 by Mike Collins

Even after all these years, however, I’m intrigued by other accounts of that day. Today I read for the first time the 9/11 account of an FAA inspector who was then assigned to the FSDO at John F. Kennedy International in New York City, and posted today by

    The FAA Flight Standards Division sat and just watched as 9/11 unfolded. They did not respond because of their own fear of retribution!

    Today I investigate FAA corruption and expose this agency for the joke it has become!
